Ford is not working on a plug-in Escort for 2010
Ford is also continuing development work on the HySeries drive platform that was shown in a Ford Edge last January. The HySeries Edge has been under continual test and evaluation since it was completed last November and a lighter-weight version is currently being worked on. However, no dedicated compact plug-in hybrid is currently planned for the 2010 time-frame.
The other problem with yesterday's rumor is that GM has a development deal with A123 that gives them some exclusivity to intellectual property developed by the two companies for automotive use, which could limit Ford's ability to use these batteries.
