Executive Chairman Bill Ford will share his vantage point of the Ford Motor Company electric future, and the first look at the newest Ford electric offering. Join us as we live blog Friday, January 7, 2011, at 2 p.m. EST from the event.
Ford recently launched an electric vehicles section on fordvehicles.com. On the site, you can find video, text and diagrams to help understand the differences in the technologies of electrified vehicles.
Electrification is an important piece of the Ford overall product sustainability strategy. The aggressive strategy includes the launch of five new electrified vehicles in Europe and North America. In addition to Focus Electric, Ford will introduce the Transit Connect Electric small commercial van, two next-generation lithium-ion battery hybrids and a plug-in hybrid. The range of electrified vehicles allows Ford to address a variety of consumer driving needs.
The Ford electrification strategy also leverages the most fuel-efficient powertrains, the most technically competent hybrids and the company’s global vehicle platforms in order to develop affordable choices for consumers.
