Ford, large US Auto company with a comprehensive global footprint with a small stake in Mazda. Very much a US focused company with world HQ in Michigan. Old school car company.
With regards to Electric Cars the company has a spotted history. In 2004 Ford licensed technology from Toyota for certain Hybrid technology and introduced the Escape Hybrid. With a US centric focus on Hybrids Ford has marketed the: Ford Escape Hybrid (2004–2012), Mercury Mariner Hybrid (2005–2010), Mercury Milan Hybrid (2009–2010), Ford Fusion Hybrid (2009–present), Lincoln MKZ Hybrid (2010–present), Ford C-Max Hybrid (2012–present), and Ford Mondeo Hybrid (2014–present). By September 2014, Ford has sold over 344 thousand hybrids in the States. The top selling hybrids in the U.S. market are the Fusion Hybrid with 127,572 units, followed by Escape Hybrid with 117,997 units, and the C-Max Hybrid with 54,236. Ford is the world’s second largest manufacturer of hybrids after Toyota Motor Corporation, with 400,000 hybrid electric vehicles produced since their introduction.
With pure electric cars the story is not so rosy. Ford launched the Ranger EV in 97 that lasted until 2003. Ford flirted with Think, a Norwegian Electric Car company. In the US where Ford need to be seen as environmentally focus they offer a range of all electric and plug-in vehicles. However in the UK, Ford hardly make any noise on the EV front with no mention on the Ford UK website home page in stark contrast to Ford US website.
In the UK Ford offer the Focus Electric car. – Even this is hard to track down and most Ford dealers have no real knowledge or awareness of the electric offering.
