Testing the Ford Escape Hybrid on E85

Filed under: , , ,

From Domestic Fuel, we hear that VeraSun is currently testing Ford's Hybrid Escape using E85. The two-year test is meant to "demonstrate the benefit of converging flexible fuel and hybrid technologies." For some people, this combination of hybrid efficiency with farmer-friendly corn ethanol is just the thing for an SUV like the Escape. And ethanol-producer VeraSun likes that getting the biofuel into a hybrid is good for business and, in some ways, the environment. VeraSun will also open a new plant in Charles City, Iowa this Friday, where Sen. Barack Obama will be giving the keynote address.
