EV plans and the best new Ford hybrid

Coming late 2011

EVs, PHEVs and HEVs

If you want to be one of the first to own the Ford Focus electric car, you ll need to live close to one of the following cities: Atlanta, Austin and Houston, Texas; Boston, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, New York, Orlando, Fla. Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz.; Portland, Ore.; Raleigh Durham, N.C.; Richmond, Va. Seattle, and Washington, D.C.

Fortunately, in addition to the Focus EV, Ford has a few more hybrids up its sleeve. Dying for you favorite Ford to be converted into a hybrid?

While announcing its Focus EV deployment plans, Ford also reiterated that the Transit Connect EV, as well as a plug-in hybrid and two new lithium hybrids will also soon roll out according to Straightline .

Thus far, Ford s plug-in hybrid prototypes have been built around the Escape hybrid. so it seems most likely Ford s first plug-in hybrid will probably be the Escape. Additionally, in the past Ford has promised an entirely new lithium hybrid. So what does two next generation lithium hybrids mean?

Essentially, Ford has two basic hybrid platforms today, the Escape and the Fusion which can be translated into several different brands, such as Lincoln and Mazda. Are these two platforms just going to be converted into lithium, or are two entirely new hybrids coming? Hopefully, it s the later, which is more in line with Ford s original hybrid forecasts.

Thus, let s just assume its two new hybrids. In what form should these new hybrids evoke themselves?

While the Focus EV will be a great offering for early plug-in adopters, production numbers will be limited. Thus, a hybrid offering in this class seems a good idea, and Ford has mentioned that possibility in the past. Tweak the body a bit to give it some different, unique style cues and a Focus-like hybrid seems a great offering.

The biggest and most exciting possibility, however, is a hybrid pickup truck, but that seems almost entirely inconceivable. Such trucks won t be as profitable, well .OK, they won t be profitable at least for now. Likewise, GM has had little luck selling its hybrid pickup trucks, such as the Chevy Silverado hybrid .

Thus, if not a truck, perhaps something akin to the old Ford Reflex hybrid concept proposed in the past?

What kind of hybrid would you love to see Ford produce?
