Ford announced yesterday that it will build a conventional hybrid and plug-in hybrid version of its C-Max vehicle for European customers. The two hybrid variants of the C-Max�a kind of small versatile family wagon�will be built in Ford�"s Valencia plant in Spain. The hybrids are due in 2013, while the redesigned conventional C-Max and Grand C-Max models go on sale across Europe during the second half of 2010.
“We believe Europe will have hybrid growth, at a more modest rate, with higher emphasis on vehicles that plug-in.”
There are no announced plans for the C-Max hybrids to the United States, although Ford will produce a seven-seat gas version in Valencia that will head to North America in late 2011.
