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.
