Ford to Sell Hybrid Minivan

 In this product image provided by the Ford Motor Co., the C-MAX Hybrid, a next-generation full hybrid version of the five-passenger multi-activity vehicle, is shown. Ford is making a minivan that will become its first U.S. vehicle sold only as a hybrid.

Ford says that it will produce a minivan that will be its first U.S. vehicle sold only as a hybrid.
Ford offers hybrid versions of some of its cars, but none are exclusively hybrids.
Ford's minivan will be similar to a five-passenger van, the C-Max, which it currently sells in Europe, That model is gasoline-powered.
Ford reportedly had planned previously to sell a seven-passenger, gas-powered C-Max in the U.S. next year, but now ill offer it as a gas/electric hybrid only.
The company says the vehicle will get more than 41 miles per gallon. There will also be a plug-in version that will be similar to the Chevrolet Volt, which runs initially solely on electricity, then switches over to gasoline mode.
