Tell Ford you want Flexible Fueled, Plug-in Hybrids

This article is on a Ford Motor company web site where they explore possible directions for new vehicles. Posting a comment after this article is a good way to make your opinions known to Ford. My own reaction is that an plug-in ethanol-gasoline-electric "tribrid" would be awsome if the engine is optomized for better fuel economy on E85. This can be done with variable turbo boosting as with the Saab 9-5 biofuel on roads in Europe. -- Jeffrey Goettemoeller

"When Ford introduces its flexible fueled Escape hybrid, two-thirds of the technological foundation for an oil free future will be in place. The final piece? Enabling the grid system to recharge the hybrid's batteries. "
