If the reader looks closely at the images it appears that there is no multilink at the rear suspension. Normally I would bitch about that, but in the current economic conditions who cares… just make it look good and move some metal with profit!

This is a project for an electric car with on-board generator... just like the Chevy Volt. I guess they could try to sell it in EV-mode only since it should be very light and looks more suited to cities.
But anyway, the promoters are still looking for funding.... Do you think it looks ugly?... it was designed by Murat Günak, a designer famous for hurting VW's profitability... he is better at designing this sort of things than real cars.

Ford announced today that when it starts building its first series production plug-in hybrid in 2012, the lithium ion battery packs will be supplied by Johnson Controls-Saft. JCS has already been supplying the prototype packs for current test fleet of PHEV Ford Escapes as well as packs for some of Ford's experimental vehicles such as the HySeries drive Ford Edge.
It would be nice to have the Escape PHEV sooner than 2012 but we reckon it will probably be available with the new car-like body structure expected for the next generation Escape.
