Ford plans to sell electric car by 2011

DETROIT Ford Motor Co. is planning to put a fully electric car in showrooms by 2011 that will get up to 100 miles on a single charge.

That's part of the company's electrification plan that seeks to bring more hybrids, plug-in hybrids and pure electric cars to market.

Ford announced its strategy Sunday at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, offering a broad description of plans for both hybrid and purely electric-powered vehicles.

Executive Chairman Bill Ford Jr. said the company's electrification strategy is "perfectly aligned with our nation's growing interest in advanced technologies that can help reduce our usage of gasoline."

The Dearborn-based automaker said it also plans to have a battery-powered commercial van on the market in 2010.

"We're employing a comprehensive approach to electrification that will tackle commercial issues such as batteries, standards and infrastructure," Bill Ford said.

In an effort to make electric vehicles appeal to a mass market, Ford said the company is teaming up with utility companies in Southern California, and local governments in Colorado and China to develop projects that can help fuel usage of plug-in, eco-friendly vehicles.,5143,705276878,00.html
