Re: Hyundai Teases Prius Fighting IONIQ Compact
This sounds like the direction Ford should be going in with their new hybrid vehicles. I expect to see super light weighing from Ford, using combination of magnesium, aluminum, high strength steel and carbon fibre. That collaboration with DOW: FORD, DOWAKSA TO JOINTLY DEVELOP CARBON FIBER FOR HIGH-VOLUME AUTOMOTIVE LIGHT-WEIGHTING APPLICATIONS should pay off.
Along with the the tiny 1.0L EcoBoost as part of a hybrid or plug-inhybrid drivetrain. But expect the 1.5L to be used instead for more power. Its also time for new battery tech to make it to Ford vehicles. The competition has upgraded twice since Ford launched their hybrids or plug-ins.
Expecting Ford to make a big leap, without stumbling this time. General Motors how was the 47mpg combined for their new 2016 Malibu hybrid, surly just to kick Ford in the balls.
