Initially, FoMoCo was all like, "Yeah, 4,000 Escape Hybrids will be enough." But now that it has been established that people actually want mid-sized SUVs that draw from both gasoline and electric motors, Ford feels that 17,000 is a number which better illustrates the volume, a number raised by customer demand and underlined by fervent jailhouse- or Army-mess-hall-style table-fist-pounding. Ford thinks they call sell out all the Escape Hybrids they make this year when taking into account the 30,000 information requests received so far. The automaker was temporarily worried that a dearth of Sanyo-supplied batteries might delay production, but the company tapped their massive VCR remote reserves and came up with enough AAs to last a century of Escape manufacturing, or possibly more.
