Jalopnik got the skinny from a Ford Motor Company snitch they've dubbed "Electric Throat" (ahem), who says that a hybrid Fusion will be launched in concept form at either the Los Angeles Auto Show this November or North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January '08.

While we knew some kind of alternative Fusion was on the books for 2009, we weren't certain about many of the details. Ray's celebrity mole at Ford says the automaker is pushing for LA, which makes sense considering Arnold's peeps are a wee bit more eco-friendly than us Michiganders, where our lawmakers still hesitate to legislate any greener lest it hurt the bottom line of a few of the state's biggest employers.
