Ford announced that they'll have a commercial electric van available in the US in 2010, followed by an electric car in 2011. The car will be based on the Fusion and marketed in urban areas. They're aiming for the car to have a 100 mile operating range and a production run of between 5,000 and 10,000 units.
Good to see another big automaker jumping on the EV bandwagon. It would be great to have a 100 mile per charge pure EV from a major automaker in the next few years.
