Ford makes some great gas-guzzling cars but that doesn’t mean that the iconic car company does not have an eye on the future. The company is making remarkable efforts for the advancement of self-driving car technology and it’s also embracing more efficiency for its cars. Ford has confirmed that it’s going to manufacture hybrid models of two of its best-selling cars: the Mustang and the F-150 pickup.
Ford is going to release the hybrid models of the Mustang and F-150 pickup by 2020. The decision to do this is part of Ford’s significant investment in electric cars that the company’s CEO Mark Fields revealed today at Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan.
The company hasn’t confirmed a lot of details about this hybrid cars but did say that the Mustang will have “V8 power” with greater low-end torque. That sounds like a very compelling proposition.
The Hybrid F-150 pickup will not only be more efficient but it’s also going to be more useful. Ford has said that the hybrid pickup would double as a mobile generator which would enable owners to generate electrical power from their car even when they’re at a remote site. “Powerful towing and payload capacity” has also been promised.
Ford fans will certainly be excited for 2020 now to see just how the company is able to use the latest advancements in automotive technology to further improve two of the best-selling automobiles it has ever made.
