The latest edition of the compact car was built in the newly eco-friendly facility at the Michigan Assembly Plant (MAP).

MAP recently underwent a $550 million "transformation" to be the green pride of Ford Motor Company.

"MAP epitomizes the best of what Ford stands for – fuel efficiency, quality, smart technology. [The] Focus delivers even more of what customers truly want and value – and this new car could not arrive in the market at a better time," said the automaker's president of The Americas, Mark Fields, in a news release.

With an automatic gearbox, the Focus can achieve an impressive 40 miles per gallon, while drivers enjoy the use of Ford's SYNC system with real-time traffic information, parking assist, broadband connectivity and much more.

The 2012 Ford Focus begins at $18,790 and allows consumers to use their car loans for a good cause.
