What the Future Holds for Ford Hybrid and Electric Models
The slew of all-new model releases Ford gifted us all with during the 2018 model year combined with the bevy of all-new model releases set for the 2019 model year have us all here at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA, very excited about the future. Speaking of the future, Ford isn’t going to stop and rest on its laurels once it’s finished up with its monumental 2018 and 2019 model years. In fact, things are only going to get better if recent news is any indication. More specifically, Ford has announced a renewed interest in growing its stable of hybrid and battery electric vehicles, which is what we’re going to focus on here as we take a look at what the future holds for Ford hybrid and electric models.
Are Hybrid and Electric Models Coming for Our Favorite Ford Model Lineups?
The short answer to that question is yes. The more involved answer is that hybrid and battery electric models are on their way for future Ford F-150, Mustang, Explorer, Escape and Bronco lineups.
“Hybrids for years have been mostly niche products but are now on the cusp of a mainstream breakout. The valuable capability they offer – plus fuel efficiency – is why we’re going to offer hybrid variants of our most popular and high-volume vehicles, allowing our loyal, passionate customers to become advocates for the technology.” – Jim Farley, Ford President, Global Markets
