Soon enough we'll see more electric and hybrid fords on the road....
Ford is serious about increasing the “green”, i.e. hybrid and electric offerings, in its line-up. The first step is the launch of five new vehicles this year: the all-electric version of the Focus and the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of the C-MAX people carrier and the Fusion mid-size sedan.
The Blue Oval has decided to increase its efforts towards the electrification of its fleet and speed up the time needed to bring new models to the market. To that end, Ford announced on Wednesday that it will invest US$135 million in the design, engineering and production of key components for its new hybrid and electric vehicles.
