Ford steers electric car push in Portland

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Ford Motor Co. and Portland General Electric announced a collaboration to help prepare the city of Portland, Oregon and the Pacific Northwest for the operation of electric vehicles. 

Ford and PGE have agreed to work together with state and local governments to support charging station permitting, electric vehicle incentives and future legislation or regulations.  Vehicle incentives and an easy charging station permitting process are considered to be two key to elements to electric vehicle acceptance.

In early August, PGE opened the nation's first quick-charge station at its World Trade Center headquarters, which complements the network of more-than 20 charging stations now up and running across PGE's operating areas.

Ford will introduce its first pure battery electric vehicle, the Transit Connect Electric small commercial van, this year.  In 2011, Ford will deliver the Focus Electric passenger car to market, and in 2012, will introduce new next generation lithium ion battery powered hybrids and a plug-in hybrid in North America.
