Since Ford already has small cars such as the Fiesta, Focus, and Fusion, I don't think you'll see another small car such as the Pinto any time soon.

Ford will soon be selling the all electric Focus, and it goes pretty quick, but only gets about a hundred miles on a single charge. Great if your just commuting, not so good if your going a long distance trip. Perhaps like the Tesla Motors electric car company Ford can develop a battery that will get up to 300 miles on a charge. Or like the Chevy Volt they can have cars with a gas engine that will kick in once the electric motor battery discharges.

Since Ford already thinned out many of its brands and models to get out of the red and back into profitability, I don't think as I said they'll be adding anything else such as a Pinto at the moment.

Perhaps they can take some of their current models such as the Taurus, Mustang, Fusion and come up with electric versions of those cars. But since they are bigger heavier cars the question is, how far will they go on a single charge?

I do like your idea of an electric sports car, and the Mustang, and the redesigned Fusion would make great electric sports car.

I don't believe electric and affordable are going to be useable in the same sentence for some time due to the cost of batteries.
