Hybrid vehicles have been all the rage from their inception in the late 1990s. Ford’s first was the 2010 Fusion Hybrid. Since that time, Ford Motor Company has worked diligently to expand upon technologies in the area of electrification.

Ford is planning to continue to invest in the way of the future, with an anticipated 13 new electrified vehicles by 2020 (which equates to 40 percent of Ford’s overall vehicle lineup) including commercial vehicles, trucks, performance vehicles and utility vehicles. Ford is also putting $4.5 billion into continued research and development of electrified solutions, including concepts that will save on energy consumption such as telematics solutions, electrified vehicle fleet management and route planning.
Electification is the way of the future, and Ford Motor Company recognizes that investing in this market will provide sustainability, not only for Ford, but for an ever-changing world.
