Ford, just like General Motors, is doubling down on hybrid and pure electric-powered cars. It said today that it plans to invest $135 million into its hurtin’ home state of Michigan, creating 220 badly needed jobs. The money will create a “center for excellence in vehicle electrification” that will “keep Ford on the cutting edge,” said Mark Fields, Ford’s president of the Americas. The investment will be used to expand hybrid-electric research, engineering and manufacturing capabilities at two Michigan plants.
