Ford Hybrids: Safer than Toyota
The 2009 Ford Escape hybrid and the Mercury Mariner hybrid are both 5 star rated vehicles according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. And Ford hopes to use this rating as a way to promote its hybrid vehicles over Toyota. Both the Toyota Prius and the Highlander hybrid received 4 stars.
Soon, Ford will launch the Ford Fusion hybrid and the Mercury Milan hybrid, and the automaker hopes to double the sales of its hybrid vehicles.
That's four hybrid vehicles. Yet, Ford is only hoping to sell 50,000 hybrids?
