Ford Considering Hybrid Partner

2 posts in this topic

Autoweek

A brief, interesting interview on the future of Ford's hybrid technology...she also mentions that a Gen III hybrid is already in the works.

Because Toyota and Honda are so far ahead in hybrids and have set the quality bar so high, does it put more pressure on you to get it right than it would on any other program?

I don't agree with you about Toyota and Honda being so far ahead. We still are the only SUV out there that meets (California's) Partial Zero Emissions vehicle or PZEV requirements. And we were the first hybrid SUV out there.

We have more than 130 patents, and additional patents are pending. In terms of intellectual property and knowledge in hybrid technology and future generations of hybrid technology, we are not as far behind as you might like to portray. I actually think we are quite competitive.

BUURRRN!
