Ford had some early wins with the Escape hybrid, the Fusion hybrid and Fusion Energi PHEV and to a lesser extent with the C-Max hybrid and C-Max Energi vehicles. The Ford Focus EV was not a particularly impressive effort but Ford probably learned enough from the Focus EV to do better next time.

Ford has stated they will be adding hybrid technology to the Mustang and the F150 and bringing out a new hybrid SUV/CUV. A hybrid F150 might close the fuel economy gap between the new diesel F150 and a conventional gas engine powered F150.

GM only has a few hybrid vehicle offerings. FC has only delivered the Town & Country PHEV. If Ford eventually sells even 5% of their F150 trucks as hybrid vehicles this will equal the sales volume of some of the more popular hybrid vehicles. Ford has stated that the F150 hybrid will be able to provide job site power for use with 110V power tools. The hybrid F150 should prove to be a popular F150 offering.
