If only to pronounce the name, Ford Mustang Hybrid, we understand that indeed the history of the automobile is changing. If the symbol of the American sports car pony and “roaring” will be converted within five years to its hybrid engine means that the car world as we know it will never be the same.
The Mustang Hybrid however will not be the only new electrified car Ford, which saw the Mustangs with batteries will be joined by the Ford F-150 Hybrid , the Transit Custom Plug-in Hybrid is a compact all-electric SUV with 480 km range and two high performance models for the police. In total electrification of the Ford range it will cover thirteen models in the next five years.

Within the same strategy “electrification” of Ford that includes an investment of $ 4.5 billion by 2020.
