Ford boosts domestic green car production
Ford claims it produces 35,000 electrified vehicles a year, with the Fusion Hybrid and Escape Hybrid comprising most of the units, but that 100,000 cars will be produced annually by 2013.
According to Ford, 120 jobs are being created due to the production expansion, many at plants that assemble lithium-ion batteries.
Only time will tell which, if any, of the cars comes out a clear winner in the consumer market. However, one thing is clear: production for all of these vehicles may be increasing, but the numbers are still low and likely to stay that way in the near future.
