Ford lives in the real world

From The Washington Post:

Ford Motor Co. has dropped a pledge to build 250,000 gas-electric hybrid cars per year by the end of the decade, saying it will expand into other fuel-saving technologies.

Environmentalists accused the automaker of backpedaling, but industry analysts said the move underscored the difficulty the industry is having in selling the technology to mainstream car buyers.

Notice how the eco-loons don't give a fig for the fact that Ford can't sell the damn things. As far as they are concerned Ford exists for no other purpose than to satisfy their infantile demands based on their delusional fantasies of global catastrophe.
