Ford Makes Huge Push Into Electric Race, 13 Vehicles On The Horizon
05 January, 2017, 01:48 | Author: Elaine Woods
In 2020 Ford plans to release a hybrid of its F-150 pickup truck, the best-selling vehicle in America, alongside a hybrid Mustang, the company's iconic sports auto. The company has also confirmed it will produce a fully electric sports utility vehicle with a range of at least 300 miles, a wireless auto charging network and an autonomous vehicle.
Naturally little is known about the Mustang just yet, however Ford promises a hybrid "that will deliver V8 power and even more low-end torque". Ford says the F-150 hybrid will offer "powerful towing and payload capacity and operate as a mobile generator". "Ford has already mastered the art of reducing engine size and vehicle weight to achieve improved performance, all at a cost that doesn't impact what consumers pay". It will offer a plug-in hybrid-powered Ford Transit Connect in Europe beginning in 2019 and test a fleet of 20 hybrid Connect taxis in major USA cities, and is testing wireless recharging technology in the US and Europe.
The moves are part of Ford's $4.5 billion investment in electrified vehicles by 2020.
Plans also call for an F-150 hybrid, built at Ford's Dearborn Truck Plant and available by 2020, a Transit Custom PHEV available in 2019 in Europe and two hybrid police vehicles rated for high-speed pursuit. The expansion will create 700 direct new jobs.
The range of new electric vehicles will be backed up by services and solutions, including EV fleet management, route planning and telematics solutions.
Aside from the prospect of a hybrid Mustang, in Europe we can look forward to an all-electric SUV, which Ford claims will feature a range of "at least 300 miles".

"The challenge for Ford will be: Can they really sell these?"
And in news which should be of interest to law enforcement agencies in Australia - now considering replacements for Commodore and Falcon - Ford is developing two new electric pursuit-rated Police vehicles.
Also in the mix is wireless recharging for plug-ins and BEVs - which should make owners be much more likely to recharge their plug-ins (most owners don't actually bother).
The news isn't so good for Mexico with Ford confirming the extra investment in Flat Rock means the proposed $US1.6-billion new plant in San Luis Potosi, Mexico will not be proceeding.
