Ford Extend plug-in hybrid in the near future?

Spy photographers will lie in wait for days in the heat of the desert or the cold of Scandinavian winter to get a few shots of future product. There are a lot fewer journalists or analysts willing to sift through the millions of requests for trademarks to gain insight into an automaker's future product offerings, but they're out there. One such studious individual uncovered Ford's desire to secure the name "Extend" for a future vehicle of green intention. The trademark mentions that the Extend would be a "plug-in hybrid vehicle," which means Ford doesn't intend to let GM and Toyota have all the climate-saving fun.

It's nice to see that Ford will likely create a purpose-built hybrid in the same vein as the Prius and later the Volt, and a 110 volt connection means that 100 mpg or better is possible. In any event, lets just hope it isn't as ugly as the Airstream concept from the 2007 Detroit Auto Show.

This thread has a couple of whiskers on it but I'll just toss this out anyway. I looked at Ford's offering in Plug In Hybrids. The lousy design of the cargo area, limited EV only range, and styling pretty much DROVE me to buy my 2017 Volt. Couldn't be happier. I can get my everyday items in the storage area and it's EV only range means I average NO gasoline use in round trips averaging 45 miles.

I enjoy paying $1.38 for a complete charge versus having to buy gasoline at $2.60 per gallon.

Ford has a long way to go before they'll convince me they have a good Plug In Hybrid. Plain Hybrid maybe, just leave off the "plug in" part.

Ford hasn't thrilled me so far

And the bar has been raised by the Bolt/2GVolt.

When automakers ask to lower emission standards, they are asking permission to kill more people.
