Ford is likely to bring to the European market its new Ford C-Max hybrid and plug-in hybrid by year 2013. In this regard, the auto giant is mulling over options to use the manufacturing facility in Valencia, Spain.
The car maker is said to have already pumped in an investment to the tune of €300 million in the C-Max lineup. Of this amount, as much as €27 million has been set aside for the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions.
In its bid to up the use of battery power in its vehicles, Ford will bring in the C-Max models, along with the 2011 Ford Transit Connect all-electric and the all-electric next-gen 2012 Ford Focus. The cars will sport efficient green technologies of the likes of the ECOnetic range of ultra-low CO2 diesel-powered vehicles and Ford’s EcoBoost advanced petrol engine range.
It has been pointed out by Ford that the five alternative powertrains to be introduced by 2013 would include the new HEV and PHEV C-Max models. These models have been confirmed. As far as the specs are concerned, the seven-seat model C-Max would come with dual sliding doors and flexible seating.
