Ford and Toyota Debut New Electric and Hybrid Vehicles in Detroit
Ford unveiled a trio of "electrified" vehicles at the Detroit show: the Focus Electric, C-MAX Energi and C-MAX Hybrid, which will begin production late this year at Ford's revamped Michigan Assembly plant in the Detroit suburb of Wayne.
Ford also took the wraps off its sleek Vertek concept vehicle, which many reports suggest will likely be the basis for the replacement of the aging Ford Escape compact SUV. The Vertek's stylish appearance isn't merely gimmickry, Ford said. Rather, the vehicle's aerodynamic design increases fuel economy and reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions emitted.
