Ford Initiatives

Among the Ford programs Barron’s highlights:

  • Ford Mobility — a subsidiary focused on gathering data for new business opportunities
  • Ford is the leading seller of plug-in hybrid vehicles in the U.S.
  • Ford’s fully autonomous vehicle test fleet will reach 30 vehicles by the end of 2016 — that’s more vehicles than any other company’s fleet
  • Autonomous vehicle testing in Michigan, California, and Arizona
  • GoPark — a parking app
  • GoDrive — a car-rental service
  • FordPass — a premium membership program

There’s a lot going on.
