A consideration of cutting-edge hybrid-auto technology in America.
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, Oklahoma – On our show today, we explore the latest in domestic hybrid-auto technology. Our guest is Anand Sankaran, a Ford Motor Company hybrid engineer who'll be here in Tulsa tomorrow morning (Wednesday the 6th) to preview, discuss, and demonstrate the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid car --- which is being promoted as the most fuel-efficient midsize sedan in the world. Mr. Sankaran is driving a Fusion Hybrid down to Tulsa from the Ford Headquarters (in Dearborn, Michigan) in order to appear at --- among other local engagements --- tomorrow morning's "open forum" event, which happens from 10am till noon at the Dwelling Spaces gift boutique (located in downtown Tulsa, at 119 South Detroit Avenue). Mr. Sankaran is Manager of Electrical and Electronics Implementation at Ford Motor Company. He joins us today by phone.
