electric drivetrains
If Ford can come out with a plug in hybrid with 100 mile capabilities, I think they should be able to put the drive motors on other vehicles and use the ecoboost 4 cylinder engine to run a D.C. generator instead of a battery pack. Just think of the mpg numbers on something like that!! If you could replace the differential on the front and rear with electric motors then you could have 4x4.
