Ford delivers fleet of hybrids to Florida
Orlando, FL— Ford Motor
Company handed over the keys to five hybrid hydrogen Ford Focus
Fuel Cell vehicles as part of a 5-city 30-car program to conduct
real world testing of fuel cell technology. The Florida Department
of Environmental Protection (DEP) will get three vehicles and
Progress Energy will receive the other two.
The Ford Focus Fuel Cell Vehicle
(FCV) is one of the industry’s first hybridized fuel cell
vehicles combining the improved range and performance of hybrid
technology with the overall benefits of a fuel cell.
In addition to the FCV demonstration
fleet, Ford will support Florida’s hydrogen initiative with
the production of eight hydrogen powered shuttle buses for use
in the Orlando area and with Ford’s 4.2-liter, V-6 industrial
engine — converted and calibrated to run on hydrogen —
will power two TUG M1 tow tractors for use at the Orlando International
