Hybrid should be an E85 flex tune, not expensive and dangerous batteries with dubious claims of climate benefit.

I think they pretty much have it pegged. For a while I was thinking that the more likely configuration would be to use the EcoBoost with a 48V mild hybrid, but some other things Ford has said over the past few months indicates they are not too keen on the 48V concept. Don't really understand why, because typically 48V hybrids are less costly than full hybrids, and with the right electric motors, they can deliver almost as much power and fuel economy benefit.
