Paris Motor Show: Ford announces suite of five electricfried vehicles
Ford is on track to produce five hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid electric and battery electric vehicles for the North American market by 2012 and European markets by 2013.
Ford’s first hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles for Europe will be based on the new Ford C-MAX to be launched in 2013.
The C-MAX plug-in hybrid will use the company’s critically acclaimed powersplit architecture with a high-efficiency Atkinson-cycle engine in combination with a high-voltage electric motor generator and a lithium-ion battery system.
New C-MAX hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles join Transit Connect Electric and Focus Electric and a yet to be announced CD segment vehicle in a suite of electrified vehicles across the compact, midsize and light commercial van segments.
