Ford will establish a hybrid vehicle development center in Sweden that will speed the
introduction of more fuel-efficient vehicles. The focus will be on cleaner, more-efficient
diesel engines, hybrids and alternative fuel vehicles — plus lighter, stronger materials
and smaller vehicles — while meeting customer expectations for safety.
According to a
spokesman, “The hybrid cars of tomorrow will be more sophisticated and much further
developed compared with what we see on the road today. And it is likely that we will find
high-performance hybrids running on diesels and renewable fuels.”
