Ford Sees Bright Future in its Electric Car Plans


The New York Times - October 12, 2009

Ford’s new direc­tor of glob­al elec­tri­fi­ca­tion expects 10–25% of new car sales by 2020 to be elec­tric as hybrids, plug-in hybrids and bat­tery-elec­tric cars. The expect­ed roll­out of Tran­sit Con­nect bat­tery ver­sion sched­uled for 2010, Focus-based bat­tery ver­sion planned for 2011, and Escape plug-in hybrid planned for 2012 could make the pre­dic­tion good.
