Drew Barrymore

Last week Ford announced that it will be providing Jay Leno with a battery electric version of the Ford Focus sedan for his new self-named show. Celebrities visiting Jay Leno on the show will drive the Focus BEV as they compete in the “Green Car Challenge” segment of the show and will compete for best track times.

USAToday is reporting that the first celebrity behind the wheel of the battery electric Focus will be Drew Barrymore.

The electric Focus has the ability travel 100 miles on a single charge of its lithium-ion batteries. It will take 6 hours to recharge the electric Focus at 220 volts. A production version of the car will hit showrooms sometime in 2012.

    I have made it through 1 1/2 shows with Leno and I really don't think I can suffer though another show. If the 1 1/2 shows I have watched are any indication of how the driving segment will go it will not be good.

    If Drew is going to drive topless I may watch, but since this show is in prime time I probably will not.

    Wait the show already started?

    According to NBC, she's going to be on the program on Friday. I'll probably tune in then, but at least I don't have to keep checking his show everyday for this one segment.

    most of it wasn't great, but the obama sketch was pretty funny
