Ford To Announce Electric Vehicle Programs at Detroit Auto Show
Hot on the heels of news that Chrysler is planning to show a new all-electric sports car concept at next week’s Detroit Auto Show comes a new report that claims Ford is also planning to reveal its electric future at the event.
While there are no plans to show-off a new concept vehicle per se, Automotive News is reporting that Ford will give specific details about several electric vehicle projects planned for the next couple of years. The first of these will be an electric van aimed at commercial fleets. The vehicle will be based on the European Transit Connect and should go on sale in 2010. A petrol version of the van will go on sale in the U.S. later this year.
Ford is also tipped to reveal plans for a new electric sedan that is scheduled to go on sale in 2011 and is likely to be based on the next-generation global Focus sedan.
