Officials of Ford Motor Co. will unveil a zero-emissions version of the company's Ford Focus at the New York International Auto Show this month, according to the Associated Press. The Focus FCV is powered by hybrid electric technology and a hydrogen fuel cell, company officials said March 20. The automaker expects to begin production in 2004, according to John Wallace, executive director of Ford's environmental THINK group. "This latest technology brings us one step closer to making fuel cell vehicles viable for consumers," Wallace said. Ford's decision comes soon after Toyota Motor Corp.'s announcement this month that it would begin marketing a hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle for commercial use next year. Japan's number one automaker plans to start selling its environmentally friendly FCHV-4 in the Tokyo area by the summer of 2003.
