Ford Wants Plug-In Hybrids, Too

Ford has thrown it's hat into the plug-in ring. GM has already stated they are working on a plug-in hybrid (Vue) capable of driving 40 miles on battery power. Toyota has also stated they will be working on a plug-in vehicle. And now Ford says they are also researching plug-ins.

All of the carmakers have stated the only real issue is the battery pack. Plug-ins require larger batteries, which are very expensive. There are also some issues with stability.

Product chief Derrick Kuzak of Ford made the announcement in New York. Kuzak says Ford is aiming for 25 miles on electric power. That will make it easier to overcome the battery issue and possibley make it more affordable.
