Re: Ford CEO: No current plans for performance hybrids
"Fields, in a wide-ranging interview, called Ford’s relatively sluggish stock price “frustrating.”"
I think Ford's stock price is sluggish because Ford is very secretive about announcing any future plans, so investors see Ford as doing very little. Even announcements like the one in this article mean little, because it's too generic. And it's beginning to cause a problem.
The way Ford counts, every trim level of a hybrid is a new 'electric' vehicle, and refreshed models of the same hybrid vehicle is counted as a 'new' vehicle. Which leaves the investor seeing nothing new happening, but more planned spending.
I don't get how all other manufacturers can announce very definite plans for the next 5 years, including models and specific platforms and drivetrains, but Ford can't offer any details.
