The auto maker is gearing up to launch the all-new Ford Focus Electric
in the US later this year and C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid in 2012, and its plan to introduce electric
cars in China comes after the government pledged in March to cut the country's carbon output by 17% by 2015.
Ford plans to take a demonstration fleet of new energy vehicles to showcase in China later this year. Ford vehicles sales in China have increased 19% in the first quarter of 2011 compared to the first quarter of 2010.
Although overall vehicle sales in China have slowed, Ford doesn't seem concerned, stating that the current sales rate is more rational and likely sustainable. Ford plans to continue focusing on selling Ford bran vehicles in China in the short term. Ford will introduce 15 new models in China by 2015 - the Ford Focus Electric forum is willing to bet the Ford Focus Electric will be one of those models!
