Southwest Gas Gets Ford's Ethanol Hybrids

July 3, 2007

LAS VEGAS– Ford Motor Company’s demonstration fleet of ethanol-fueled hybrids is ready to go to work on the streets of Las Vegas. Ford recently handed over the keys to an E-85 Escape Hybrid to Southwest Gas — the vehicle will be used in customer service applications.

The first three E-85 Escape Hybrids were delivered to the Department of Energy, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), and the Governors’ Ethanol Coalition (GEC) in Washington, D.C. in early June.

A total of 20 Ford E-85 Escape Hybrids will be delivered to select fleet customers in six states. These are the world’s first hybrid vehicles capable of operating on blends of fuel containing as much as 85 percent ethanol, according to Ford.
