Don't make another Pinto mistake. Please make this with large format nickel metal hydride batteries. Sue Chevron for sequestering and suppressing them just when we need them most. Nickel batteries made in the early 1900's still work today 100 years later. Short lived Lithium will be one big worthless brick I would not want to have to replace in my car. Don't make the transition from electric only mode unnoticeable. As a PHEV buyer I want to know when I begin to consume gas!

Whether the batteries are NiMH or lithium ion, I'm ready to buy an American-made plug-in hybrid.

Ford had better move quickly, though, because Toyota & Mitsubishi will both have plug-in hybrids for sale in the USA & Canada by 2011 at latest.
Well, now it's 2014 and??

Toyota still hasn't a SUV with PHEV technology.

But, Mits now has the PHEV Outlander. If fact, they can't keep up with demand. It is currently priced in germany @ $57-67k USD.

FORD had the game in their hands. What happened?

Still might be cheaper to buy a used Ford Escape hybrid(2009-2010) and add a plug in battery system to tramadol boys online it.

What a shame Ford. you almost had "it".
