I want to see a sporty 2012 Focus 5-Door Hybrid available for those without kids, who do not need a van(C-Max Hybrid/Energi), where the Fusion is too big with no hatch, and needing more range than the Focus Electric can offer. It would provide us with a FORD option so the Prius is not our ONLY option for 50+/best mpg city. It would use the same 1.6L 148hp ecoboost engine of the UK Focus(47mpg) + Hybrid Technology. Using the same Global C Platform as the Focus Electric, C-Max Hybrid and Energi, where the bulk of development from drive-train to instrumentation is ready done. Which should also bring the cost down so the hybrid is comparable to the Titanium 5-Door model. Using lighter and 'tuned for range' lithium batteries, it should offer better fuel economy than the current Prius, more power, more/better tech, and much better styling.
We need an American/FORD option for the Prius, and the hot new 2012 Focus Hybrid would be just that!
