Ford Goes Balls To The Walls With Electrified Vehicles

 Now, let’s take a look at a much more positive success in the space, at least as far as American automakers go anyhow, in the form of Ford. Fresh off of news that it continues to slowly cut down the lead of the Prius in hybrid sales – even as it also has to address fuel economy issues with some of its offerings – is word of its “best hybrid sales quarter ever.” Did you catch that Chrysler??

For the second quarter of 2013, Ford reported today, it had record hybrid sales of 24,217 vehicles. This is said to be up 517 percent over last year and 15 percent over the first quarter of this year. Having sold so many of this particular niche of cars has seen the company’s share of the U.S. electrified vehicle market grow “to nearly 16 percent in the first half of 2013 – a 12-point gain over last year.”
