Ford to produce Super Duty plug-in hybrids
Fordís partnered with Azure Dynamics, a leading producer of electric components and powertrain systems, to produce Ford Super-Duty hybrid trucks. Azureís plug-in hybrid technology will be initially integrated on the F-Series Super Duty cab and chassis, the F-550, which is expected to be available in early 2013.†
The agreement also allows Azure to perform hybrid powertrain conversions on other Super Duty platforms, including F-350 and F-450 models and spanning all engine, frame length and regular production options and configurations.†
Eventually, the program will expand to the medium-duty commercial truck segment.
