Let the Corn Growers Have Some: Ford's Ethanol Hybrid

The Washington DC auto show hosted a coming-out party for Ford's two-in-one fuel-saving technology lab — the Ford Escape Hybrid E85 — a combination flexfuel and electric hybrid-drive SUV. The Escape in question produces 25% less C02 than the traditional, gas-fueled Escape Hybrid. Ford also plans to build 250,000 E85 vehicles in 2006, including the Ford F-150 and Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car in addition to 250,000 hybrid vehicles per year globally by decade's end.
