Electrifying Deal

Ford sells discontinued truck to Pomona's William Korthof for $1

Published: 28-Jan-2005

NA -- Bill Korthof is seemingly the ideal Ford customer.

He loves his 1999 Ford Ranger EV, which he began leasing in December 2000.

In fact, the 26-year-old Pomona resident has driven about 60,000 miles in the electric vehicle, which can go about 80 miles on one charge of its battery.

But despite being a satisfied customer, Korthof battled until last week with the company over his Ranger. Ford Motor Co., which is scrapping its electric vehicle fleet, wanted to reclaim the vehicle.


Garini Group of Brazil has placed their initial order for 2,255 units for shipment to the Evader/Garini assembly plant in Manaus, Brazil.

XEBRA 'City Car' is a unique design suitable for urban, non-freeway driving.

$150,000 Wrightspeed X-1 competed in a race with $170,000 Ferrari and a $400,000 Porsche.
