Ford believes it can take on Tesla

26 sec read

Tesla may dominate the conversation when it comes to electric cars, but according to Ford CEO Mark Fields, his company could offer an equally impressive vehicle if it wanted to. Of course Ford already sells electric vehicles, but taking on Tesla’s high-end Model S would be another challenge entirely.

Ford CEO Mark Fields says the company has the expertise and ability to build a Tesla-style full-size, high-tech, high-performance, long-range electric vehicle. Fields stopped short of saying Ford will do so, but did say, “It’s consistent with our product philosophy.” Ford’s only all-electric is the small Focus electric. Ford also sells plug-in hybrids. Fields made the Tesla comment Friday during a conference call with Wall Street investment analysts and reporters discussing Ford’s third-quarter earnings announcement.
