Is "Extend" the new name for a new plug-in electric hybrid from Ford? We've no idea, but what we do know is Ford recently optioned the name in advance of the LA Auto Show and their recent team-up with Southern California Edison to explore new technologies on plug-in hybrid (PHEV) vehicles. Will we see a new plug-in or plug-in concept at LA? Heck, will we see a new one at the Detroit Auto Show? We guess we'll find out next month when we're there live. (Hat tip to Mork!)
