What makes this story/slideshow about Ford’s new Electric vehicles so fascinating is where it appeared. No, not in Car and Driver or Popular Mechanics. No not Forbes or Business Week – but in eWeek, a leading Corporate IT trade press source. Figure that one out as you get a great look see at what Ford’s Electrification and Greening of cars is all about.
The second thing that caught my scrutiny is the attention to detail of providing electrical replenishment. Ford says it is a matter of plugin-in-the-wall sources. But even of more interest is the high level of management which is committed to co-operating closely with electrical power and utility industry and other providers – and that the priority is to make the transition to blends and then electric-only as smooth as possible. What clearly comes across is that Ford is serious about the transition to cleaner energy sources for cars.
