Does Ford’s plan for electric vehicles lack vision? – Torque News

Recent comments from an exec at Ford indicated the company isn’t going to get behind battery electrics just yet, but instead will continue to focus its efforts on plug-in hybrids. Is this a clever strategy, or is their attitude toward pure electrics a self-fulfilling prophecy?

It is clear from a glance at the Ford product lineup that the company has put a great deal of effort into powertrain electrification. The Fusion Energi, C-Max Energi, and Focus EV are all excellent vehicles; the plug-in versions of the Fusion and C-Max are selling relatively well while Focus EV sales have tallied in the low hundreds every month for the past year. The Fusion Energi and C-Max Energi start at $34,700 and $32,920 respectively, high but not unreasonable sticker prices for two highly regarded vehicles with no range limitations. The C-Max Energi is currently cheaper than the Chevrolet Volt barring a price drop with the Volt’s upcoming redesign.
