I wrote about how Ford planned on letting drivers communicate with their electric cars with our post Microsoft Hohm and Ford before they had even announced any of their electric cars. It seems they now have a much bigger line up, and by the end of this year it looks like they are going to have more cars that plug-in than GM will! To keep up to date with electric cars, check out our list of plug-in electrics and electric car charging stations.
Ford Focus Electric – Late 2011
Currently, the Nissan Leaf is the only electric car available (at least for people with normal budgets). Here’s a nice comparison (on paper) between the Leaf and the Focus EV. On an appearance basis, I think the Focus EV edges out the Leaf.
Ford C-Max Energi Plug-In Hybrid – Fall 2012
I don’t have much to write about this one, because Ford hasn’t released too much information on it. There will by a plug-in hybrid version, and a standard hybrid version. Once more information is released, we’ll do a comparison between the Ford C-Max Energi and the Chevy Volt.
Ford Transit Connect – Available Now
Ford is collaborating with Azure Dynamics, a world leader in the development and production of hybrid electric and electric commercial vehicles, on the Transit Connect. If I were a solar installer this vehicle would definitely be in my garage!
