Ford Focus Electric pops a hatch and shows all that battery junk in its trunk

The five-door Ford Focus is an eminently practical vehicle, and the Electric version will be as well. However, we're now learning that it won't be quite as practical as we'd hoped. We didn't get the chance to pop the rear hatch on the thing when we were exploring it at CES. Here in Detroit we did and you can see what we found above. That's definitely a big 'ol box, putting a hurting on cargo space, but ultimately a small price to pay for rolling totally fuel- and emissions-free.
