JIM FARLEY ANNOUNCES FORD PERFORMANCE HYBRIDS

By Éric Descarries

According to online publication Ford Authority, Ford is about to offer hybrid configurations of its performance powertrains.

Ford CEO Jim Farley has confirmed that the automaker’s Blue Oval division is heavily invested in hybrid powertrains, and intends to add partially electrified options to its entire line-up of internal combustion engine vehicles by 2030. And that would include performance vehicles.

In an interview with UK magazine Autocar, Farley confirmed that adopting the hybrid configuration was not just a solution for reducing emissions and improving fuel economy; it also offered the possibility of increasing performance.

While a hybrid version of the Mustang was expected when the latest S650 model was unveiled, it has yet to materialize. However, Farley admitted that a hybrid version of the Mustang coupé-cabriolet might be more in the cards than an all-electric one!
