Ford Hybrid Taxis pass 175,000 mile mark

Ford is reporting the 18 Hybrid Escape taxis that were part of the first wave being used in New York have passed 175K miles. Pretty impressive mileage numbers from 2005. Although they don't cite how they can guess, Ford is estimating fuel savings of $250,000 for the fleet. An average customer could drive that far in 11 years, so Ford can definitely feel like they have proven the durability of their hybrid SUVs in real world conditions.
