Ford F-150 Hybrid Truck On Sale By 2020

Ford F-150 Hybrid Truck On Sale By 2020

FLUSHING, Mich.- A while back, the word on the street was that Ford Motor Company and Toyota were working together to develop a new rear-wheel-drive hybrid system. However, Ford has now confirmed that the two automakers will not be working together and will be moving forward with their own programs. Already working on an eco-friendly version of its most popular model, the automaker is aiming to have a Ford F-150 Hybrid Truck On Sale By 2020!

Experiencing the best hybrid sales ever this year, Ford's global product chief says the company plans to leverage their in-house knowledge on building world class hybrids to develop the new hybrid truck. And as fleet fuel economy standards climb towards 54.5 mpg in 2025, Ford is working towards developing hybrid versions of the F-150 and additional full size SUV's that will hit the market by the end of this decade.

While the details of Ford's new hybrid system have not been released, a reduction in the weight of the automaker's full-size trucks will play a major role. It has been stated that the automaker is aiming to cut up to 700 pounds from the truck before the next generation debuts in 2014 at the Detroit Auto Show.
