The 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid has erased any doubt that an American car company can offer an affordable, well-built sedan. This was the conclusion of Motor Trend‘s editors after one year of access to the Fusion in their famous fleet.
Besides the Ford’s excellent design and handling, the Fusion scored major points for requiring nothing more than a few standard oil changes and tire rotations during the year. Besides its low maintenance cost, the Fusion hybrid reduces 3,504 pounds of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. Combine this with its astonishing range and gas mileage, and you have a all around winner in the sedan class.

Ford is continually looking for greener alternatives. Recycled content is a way to divert waste from landfills and reduce the impact of mining virgin material. – Carrie Majeske, product sustainability manager.
By reusing old clothing items such as blue jeans, these items avoid filling the landfill and save on the water, fertilizer and land needed to grow virgin cotton. While customers appreciate the alternative resources included in the Focus, this move reflects the car maker’s company-wide focus on better for our planet, cost-effective materials.

The Ford Story wrote a great new article about the new 2011 Ford Focus electric car. The new cars start with a push of a button and will bring the convenience of refueling home with a 120V plug-in cord. Ford Motors is researching ways to make the experience natural and comfortable with the supplier partner Yazaki.
Working together, they used internal ergonomic studies to create items the convenience cord. They drew inspiration from everyday objects like a hockey puck and curling iron. The handle was especially designed for ease of use. While owners are expected to charge their vehicles at home, remote charging stations will use a standard 120V convenience cord.
