2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Production to Double



Lincoln is planning on moving more hybrids for the next model year of the MKZ, doubling the amount of gasoline-electrics being produced from 20 percent to 40 percent of the total vehicle mix.

Raj Nair of Fordís global product development, confirmed this move to The Detroit News on Wednesday, citing the increased demand of the hybrid luxury sedan. Currently, the MKZ Hybrid costs $35,925, the same as its gas-powered variant, and sales of the gas-electric vehicle have increased during the past few months. This helped to improve Fordís overall marketshare in hybrid vehicles from 12 percent last year, to 16 percent this year.

Recently Fordís hybrids have come under fire for not meeting the EPA estimates. In response the brand has offered a free ďfixĒ for its hybrid vehicles which include the Lincoln MKZ.

The launch of the 2014 Lincoln MKZ is expected later this year, as Lincoln continues to rebrand itself and move away from offering just luxury variants of Ford products.

Great news, good to see that their marketshare in the hybrid industry is at the percentage it's at and growing.

Next up they should look into making the MKX a hybrid once it comes out.

Shouldn't the title be 2015 MKz hybrid production to double? I don't even think 2014 are in production at all now... they should all be 2015 rolling off the lines...
