More than 900 Ford deal­ers will soon be cer­ti­fied to sell plug-in elec­tri­fied vehi­cles, up from 200 in Novem­ber; Ford expects to have EV Cer­ti­fied Ford deal­ers in all 50 states by spring

The surge in EV Cer­ti­fied Ford deal­ers reflects increased demand for the company’s elec­tri­fied vehi­cles – Ford’s mar­ket share increased from less than 3 per­cent in April 2012 to nearly 16 per­cent in Decem­ber 2012, sec­ond behind only Toyota

Greater cus­tomer access to vehi­cles such as Focus Elec­tric, C-MAX Energi and Fusion Energi is a neces­sity as elec­tri­fied vehi­cles go main­stream – research shows the num­ber of cus­tomers con­sid­er­ing plug-in hybrids has grown to 25 percent.
