Do not miss the “Electric Car Races” at Mt. Hood Community College this Saturday morning. Practice rounds start at 9 a.m. with the competition beginning at 11 a.m. High School students and adults will be racing their individually designed race cars/carts and will lap the back lots of the college. We have attended for the past couple of years and it is really fun to see all the effort and innovation. Centennial High School has a particularly great program. The students involved are the next generation of automotive engineers!
Speaking of some great engineering, Ford Motor Company is proud to announce that the Ford Focus Electric earned top vehicle safety ratings from the NHTSA (National Highway Safety Administration). As more people shop for electrified vehicles, the Focus Electric now offers both a top vehicle safety rating and the fastest charging technology that allows it to fully recharge in 3 to 4 hours. The Portland Metro has more charging stations per capita than any other metro area in the United State – so finding a charge is not hard (and free) and of course you can always plug it in at home.
Gresham Ford has one in stock with more on the way and Ford Motor Company has come out with a very competitive lease. Think about it. A very low lease payment, no gas expense, and virtually no maintenance expense…this may be something for your family to consider. Give us a call it might be electrifying and save you lots of money!
