Ford Debuts Electric Plug-In Hybrid Crossover Vehicle
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22 — Move over, gas-electric hybrid. Ford has a new entry, the electric-electric hybrid.
The vehicle, based on a Ford Edge crossover, runs on electricity from a battery, charged either from a standard wall socket or from an on-board fuel cell. It has two highly visible fueling ports, both on the driver’s side of the vehicle. One is a hose coupling for hydrogen gas, and the other is an electric connection like the one on a leaf blower, ready for a standard three-prong extension cord.
"I told the design team to make them prominent," said Mujeeb I. Ijaz, the manager of fuel-cell vehicle engineering at Ford.
