Ford to Develop Hybrid Cars in Britain

July 2006

Ford will invest 1 billion pounds ($1.84 billion) in Britain within six years to develop hybrid cars, the Associated Press reported, citing a senior company executive.

"We have 9,500 engineers working in the U.K. — about 35,000 employees in total — so this is our investment," Lewis Booth, Ford's executive vice president for European operations, said in a British Broadcasting Corp. radio interview.

Ford reportedly is aiming to produce a Focus model capable of delivering 70 miles per gallon with reduced carbon dioxide emissions.

Ford currently sells Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner hybrid sport-utility vehicles and has said it plans to introduce hybrid versions of the Mazda Tribute SUV in 2007 and the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan sedans in 2008
