Ford Motor Company is going to increase the number of electrified vehicles it builds to more than 100,000 units annually in 2013; three times the current level of production.
Ford will be producing five different EVs in 2013, including the Transit Connect Electric van, the Focus Electric - which begins reaching customers later this year, plus the two new C-MAX vehicles (C-MAX Hybrid and C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid), and a fifth, as-yet unnamed hybrid.
While this is still only a small part of Ford's total production (Ford produced 1.9 million vehicles in 2010), it is becoming more than a fraction of a percent of the company's effort. If Ford built the same number of vehicles overall in 2013, it would mean that more than 5% of its production would be electrified vehicles.
