ELECTRIC/DIESEL/ECO-BOOST MINIVAN

I read that a 7 psnger hybrid minivan was not practical because of weight versus power. How come there cant be some other alternative combo to make the fuel efficiency in a minivan? Honda Ody is at 28/19 mpg which only compares to the Mazda5, 28/21 mpg as for mileage, but lacks in size. FORD BE FIRST. BE INNOVATIVE. There is nothing like this out but when Toyota steps it up in a year of so with the Prius V and adds the optional 3rd row seating(I'm speculating the possibility)...they will be winning. FORD BE FIRST. Do it for America.

I agree. I love my Fiesta, but I'd like a Ford/Mazda 5 or Cmax that gets similar mpg. Ford could be first. We're ready for it here!
