When Tesla takes off, it will make a big impact on the auto industry
By Mark Sisson By Mark SnyderThe next generation of electric cars will be driven by a technology that’s more advanced than anything we’ve ever seen before, according to Ford CEO Mark Fields.
Fields said that the company will take on the role of Tesla in the electric car revolution.
“I can’t tell you how excited we are that Ford is working on an electric car,” Fields said in a speech at the International Auto Show.
“It will have a new kind of energy efficiency, it’ll be much more efficient in terms of range and battery life, it’s going to have the biggest range of any electric car, and it’s the best performing electric car in the history of electric vehicles. “
“What it will bring to the market is a whole new kind and a whole different kind of performance that no electric car has ever been able to achieve before.””
It will be electric, and when it comes out, it is going to be electric. “

It will be electric, and when it comes out, it is going to be electric.
It will be faster than the current electric car.
It’s going, and that’s going be a real game changer.
“The electric car that Fields referred to was a prototype that the Ford team had been working on for some time.
Fields has been working closely with Ford since the company bought the electric vehicle business in 2012.
“So it was our ultimate goal to build an electric vehicle that was going to compete with the best in the industry, and so we went to Ford to say, ‘We’d love to build that, and you can help us do it.'””
When we first launched Fusion, it was a concept vehicle, and we really wanted to do a car that was electric, because it’s really the future of the auto business,” Fields told the crowd at the event.
“So it was our ultimate goal to build an electric vehicle that was going to compete with the best in the industry, and so we went to Ford to say, ‘We’d love to build that, and you can help us do it.'”
Fields and the team spent nearly a year working on Fusion.
Fields is now in charge of the company’s autonomous vehicle unit, the company said.
Ford has a history of investing heavily in the EV space, and the Fusion project will likely play a role in the automaker’s plans to get into EVs.
Ford’s investment in EVs will be in the form of a small battery, a small inverter, and an advanced electric propulsion system.
The company is also working on autonomous driving technology, the automakers first foray into this field.
The next generation is expected to be faster and more efficient than anything Ford has ever seen, and Ford is committed to driving down the cost of EVs.
Ford’s investments in EVs have paid off, and Fusion has been a big success.
The vehicle has a range of up to 200 miles, and Fields said Ford expects to have about 15,000 Fusion vehicles on the road by the end of 2021.
“We’re already working on electric vehicles that will go further than anything that we’ve built before,” Fields added.
“They will be truly competitive to the best of the best.”
The company has also started selling Fusion vehicles to the public, and Tesla’s Model 3 is scheduled to begin deliveries later this year.
Fields acknowledged that the market for electric vehicles is growing, but he also pointed out that EVs are not going to replace all of the car industry’s jobs.
“The only way to really address the job loss that we are seeing is to create a better, smarter car, that has more safety features, that can handle the demands of the world and be the world’s most efficient car,” he said.
“That will be our goal.”
Ford’s investment into EVs will also help it build a network of suppliers.
The automaker is looking to expand its EV supply chain, as it expects to begin producing more cars by the year 2020.
Fields also said that Ford has already started hiring people for the project, and he expects that many more people will be added over the next few years.
Fields was asked about the future for electric car companies like Ford and Tesla.
“For us to be successful, we have to take on a lot of challenges,” Fields responded.
We need to be a truly disruptive company.””
But the important thing is that we need to have more than just a car company.
We need to be a truly disruptive company.”
