Every automaker now planning to go electric nowadays, so, nothing surprising even if some of the automakers are in talks because of the electrifications. The Michigan-based automaker, Ford recently announced that it decided to eliminate virtually all its cars and it will make a new hybrid version of its vehicle from its North American portfolio which will help to improve fuel economy while reducing running costs of the vehicles it sells.
Ford’s latest move will allow its clients to see plug-in-hybrid along with hybrid and even fully electric variations of vehicles such as Mustang, Explorer, F-150, Escape and last but not the least Mustang. To make it possible now the company will need to figure out a way to make it’s larger, more efficient and most importantly more powerful models.
Ford said in the statement, “Making a full commitment to new propulsion choices, including adding hybrid-electric powertrains to high-volume, profitable vehicles like the F-150, Mustang, Explorer, Escape and Bronco.” Ford has tried to reassure retailers that they soon they will be offered other affordable models.
Jim Farley, who heads up the carmaker’s global markets effort said at the North American International Auto Show, “It’s the beginning of a whole new world for our customers and electrifying the best of Ford.”
The company said in a statement, “The company’s battery electric vehicle rollout starts in 2020 with a performance utility, and it will bring 16 battery-electric vehicles to market by 2022.” Further, the company added that it’s fully committed to alternative propulsion choices for its future line-up, which will eventually give way to an onslaught of new cars coming sometime next decade.
