Ford to compete with Toyota with new hybrid

: Monday, August 25 - 2014 @ 09:15

Ford Motor announced that it will present a new hybrid gasoline-electric car in late 2018 to compete against the best-selling Toyota Prius, according to two sources with knowledge of the company’s plans. The compact car will be Ford’s first “dedicated” hybrid – that is a vehicle designed to be marketed exclusively as a hybrid, rather than a variation of an existing gasoline model, such as the automaker’s Fusion hybrid, the sources said. The as-yet-unnamed vehicle will be built just outside Detroit, Reuters reported. The sources said Ford eventually could offer several different body styles of the new hybrid, as Toyota does with the Prius. There would be different versions of the car’s gasoline-electric drivetrain, including a more expensive plug-in model that can be recharged from an electrical outlet.
