Ford's 2017 Sustainability Report Includes Plans for Hybrid F-150

Cars are, undeniably, a big source of air pollution—yet Ford Motor Company is determined to be part of the solution, not the problem.

Ford's 18th annual Sustainability Report details how the manufacturer has reduced emissions, water use, waste sent to landfills, and renewable materials incorporated into new vehicles. The Sustainability Report also focuses on Ford's investment in electrification.

Currently, Pasco drivers can enjoy about 20 miles of electric-only driving with the Fusion Energi—a plug-in hybrid sedan—and over 600 miles of combined range. Ford's full electrified lineup includes traditional hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants of the Fusion and C-Max, as well as an all-electric version of the Focus.

By 2021, Ford plans to electrify more popular models, including giving the Ford F-150 a hybrid powertrain option.

Although hybrid cars aren't typically associated with power, electric powertrains actually provide a huge benefit for low-end torque needed for things like quick acceleration and—of interest to truck-buyers—towing. We're excited to see how an F-150 hybrid will perform.
