True....Ford has announced that they are building a all new hybrid drivetrain. But with no real details. We are hoping that it would utilize EcoBoost technology and what they learned when working with Ricardo, where they used a 99hp 1.0L EcoBoost engine and hybrid system to offer 60mpg in a 2015 Focus hatch. More engine power than the Prius, and more mpg and at a cost much less($1,100 including the 1.0L EcoBoost engine) than current hybrid tech.

Here is a link to the HyBoost article:

Here is a link to the video from Jay Leno's Garage:

Then there is the the ADEPT project Ricardo and Ford are working on for diesel engine cars.



"With the ADEPT project, the research team aims to demonstrate a powertrain with uncompromised performance and less than 70 g/km CO2 emissions as measured over the European Drive Cycle, but at a projected production cost significantly lower than a comparable full hybrid electric vehicle."

Here is a link to that article: http://www.ricardo.com/en-GB/News--M...o-at-LCV-2014/

So I expect to see some of what was learned with these two multi-year programs incorporated in Ford next gen hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
I'd forgotten about all ^ this
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
