Automakers Showcase Electric Vehicle Strategies in DC
WASHINGTON -- Automakers at the Washington Auto Show this week showcased their commitment to bringing electric hybrid and all- electric vehicles to market as early as next year, and they're working with communities and energy companies to help foster that adoption.
Ford Motor Co. announced it named Johnson Controls-Saft as its battery supplier for its plug-in electric hybrid vehicle. It will also announced an expanded partnership with utilities to include seven additional companies including DTE Energy Inc., Michigan's largest utility.
General Motors Corp. announced efforts to work with cities to speed acceptance of its extended range electric Chevrolet Volt. The Volt, which will have an all-electric range of 40 miles on a single battery charge, is scheduled to hit the market late next year.
