Ford electric van by 2010
Posted by bitguru on January 23, 2009
I have written about hybrid minivans b e f o r e but not for a few months because I hadn’t heard anything new. Well this week Ford announced that it will introduce a battery-powered van in 2010. It’s nice to know Ford is in the game, but there are some caveats:
- It’s a full-size van (perhaps based on the Transit) not a minivan.
- It’s a commercial vehicle intended for fleets, not private owners.
- It’s a pure electric, not a hybrid or plug-in hybrid.
The announcement also mentions an “electric small car” in 2011 and “next-generation hybrid vehicles, including a plug-in version” in 2012.
