Ford goes 'all in', boosts electric car funding to $14 billion

Ford has confirmed it will more than double its investment in electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. The company's previous plan to spend US$4.5 billion ($5.7 billion) on electrified vehicle development by 2020 will now be supplanted by a new goal of investing US$11 billion ($14 billion) by 2022. "We're all in on this and we're taking our mainstream vehicles, our most iconic vehicles, and we're electrifying them," Bill Ford told reporters, including those from Reuters.
