Following in the footsteps of the 2013 Ford Escape, the all-new Ford Focus Electric will be receiving its own reality show. The series, “Plugged In,” will be a competition reality show shown on Yahoo! Screen.
The show will take place in 10 cities around the U.S.: Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Washington D.C., San Francisco, Seattle, Austin, Atlanta, Raleigh, and Boston. Contestants will drive a Focus Electric around their home towns to complete different tasks and challenges. Clues will be sent via video, text, and audio through the EV’s Sync with MyFord Touch system, and teams will also use the car’s navigation to help guide them. The winning teams will be awarded a Focus Electric.
Casting is currently underway and the schedule will be announced in a few weeks. Since the show will be broadcast online, viewers are encouraged to comment and upload their own hometown photos after each episode.
