Ford Adding 220 Jobs as it Ramps Up Battery Vehicle Program

Ford Adding 220 Jobs as it Ramps Up Battery Vehicle Program: "With its first battery-electric vehicle set to go into production later this year, Ford Motor Co. is announcing big steps to move its ‘electrification’ program forward, including a $135 million investment and the creation of 220 new jobs.

Michigan will become its new ‘center of excellence’ for the design, engineering and production of future battery-based vehicles, Mark Fields, Ford’s president of The Americas, announced from the maker’s Rawsonville (Michigan) Assembly Plant, a facility that will produce a battery-electric version of the new Focus model."
