The as-yet-unnamed vehicle will reportedly go on sale as a 2019 model. It will be a “dedicated” hybrid rather than a spinoff of a regular model.
Similar to the Prius, Ford's new hybrid could be available in various body styles. A plug-in hybrid is obviously in the cards. Fuel economy and range are both expected to be better than today's hybrids.
Ford envisions a production of 120,000 units a year at its Wayne assembly plant in Michigan, the sources said.
No word yet on pricing.
