As part of its presence at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto this week, Ford Motor Company announced Wednesday that it will assemble hybrid variants of their upcoming Edge and [Lincoln] MKX crossover sport utilities in Canada. The move comes as part of the Blue Oval's initiative that will see it churning out 250,000 hybrids by 2010.

Set to be built at Ford's Oakville, Ontario plant, hybrid production is being made possible via a $862 million dollar renovation.
