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

More Ford dealerships will sell EVs soon

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.

California issues first official permits for self-driving cars in U.S.

Sep 16 2014 1:12pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Computer-driven cars have been testing their skills on California roads for more than four years — but until now, the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles wasn’t sure just how many were rolling around. That changed Tuesday, when the agency issued testing permits that allowed three companies to dispatch 29 vehicles onto freeways and into neighbourhoods — with a human “safety driver” behind the wheel in case the onboard computers make a bad decision. These may be the ca ...

2015 Lincoln Navigator First Drive

Sep 16 2014 8:09am CDT | Source: Truck Trend

The 2015 Lincoln Navigator luxury SUV has been redesigned and modernized, but how well does it perform on the road?“You said the F-word!” That was shouted at me by one of the legions of Lincoln PR people shipped down to Louisville, Kentucky, for the launch of the pretty majorly refreshed 2015 Lincoln Navigator.
