This article was in Illinois Congressman John Shimkus' weekly E-letter. Congressman Shimkus’ Electronic Newsletter Friday, September 28, 2007 Plug In Hybrid Edge Unveiled This past week, I was able to test drive the Ford Edge with HySeries Drive and meet the program director, Mujeeb Ijaz. The Ford Edge with HySeries Drive is the world’s first drivable fuel cell hybrid electric vehicle with plug-in capability. This vehicle is designed to use different fuels and propulsion technologies. It is a fuel cell hybrid electric plug-in that combines an onboard hydrogen fuel cell generator with lithium-ion batteries to deliver more than 41 mpg with zero emissions. When operating, only water vapor is emitted through the exhaust system. The vehicle can be recharged overnight. I enjoyed driving the car and will continue to support such innovations that will reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
