Ford Forecasting Strong Hybrid, Electric Car Sales By 2020
In 10 years, up to one quarter of Ford Motor Co.'s global sales could be electrified vehicles, including hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and electric vehicles, Derrick Kuzak, Ford's group vice president of global product development, said in a speech at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
By 2015, Ford plans for those vehicles to account for 2 to 5 percent of its global sales volume, Kuzak said. By 2020, that will rise to 10 to 25 percent, he said. Hybrids are projected to make up most of those sales.
In 2010, hybrid-electric vehicles made up about 1 percent of Ford's global unit sales. Kuzak, CEO Alan Mulally and other Ford executives discussed the automaker's electrification goals and plans at the show.
