Re: Ford plans new hybrid series to compete with Toyota Prius, report says
What this article does not say may be telling.
Since the global market like the hatch better than a sedan, this should be a hybrid and Energi hatch model riding on the next gen longer, lighter Focus platform. Weight savings is expected to come from an aluminum body and more high strength steel in the new platform/frame.
Energi model should offer a more energy dense 50+ mile battery pack. Remember, this is 4 years into the future.
