Ford Says One Third of US Dealers Will Be Certified to Sell EVs by the Spring

Ford is betting big on electric vehicles and wants to expand its dealer footprint selling the zero emissions vehicles. Ford says that over one third of all at US dealerships will be certified to sell new electrified vehicles by the spring. That will mean more than 900 ford dealers will be certified to sell plug-in electrified vehicles.

In November of 2012, the number dealerships certified to sell plug-in vehicles was only 200. Ford says that the increased number of dealers certified to sell the plug-in electric vehicles represents the increased demand it has seen for its automobiles. Available vehicles will include the Fusion Energi among others.

Ford will also offer the C-Max Hybrid and other plug-in electric vehicles at its dealer network around the country. EV selling dealerships will be available in all 50 states once the rollout is complete.
