DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — Ford Motor Co. says it will introduce 13 new electric vehicles worldwide by 2020, including an updated Focus sedan that will go on sale late next year.

The new Focus will have fast-charging capability and an estimated 100-mile range, up from 76 miles in the current electric Focus.

Ford also plans to introduce the Mondeo hybrid sedan and the C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid in China next year.
