With the NAIAS 2011 in Detroit less than a week away various automakers are looking to get in first with numerous pre-show announcements continuing to trickle in. Ford has decided to beat them all to the punch by taking the unusual step of unveiling its new all-electric Focus at CES 2011, rather than the seemingly more appropriate NAIAS only days later.

On its Facebook page Ford Electric Vehicles has revealed a teaser pic of the all-electric focus showing the vehicle’s charging port on the front fender. It also spruiks Ford CEO, Alan Mulally’s keynote address that will be delivered at CES this coming Friday.

The reason for opting for CES seems to be a desire to highlight the various technologies Ford has used in the all-electric Focus, which includes a liquid cooled and heated battery system that is expected to deliver a range of around 100 miles (161 km).

Stay tuned for more details as we get them.
