2023 Ford Puma Electric: Striving For Sustainability

Around the world, Ford says it’s dedicating more than $50 billion through 2026 to develop and manufacture electric vehicles and batteries.

The company claims it is on the path to reach its targeted annual production run rate of 600,000 EVs by the end of 2023 and more than 2 million by the end of 2026. By 2030, half of Ford’s global vehicle sales volume is expected to be electric.

The just-released 2023 Integrated Sustainability and Financial Report outlines statistics on the impact of this strategy, including the carbon dioxide emissions savings of driving a Ford EV. Ford’s climate change efforts are aligned with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (Paris Agreement). Ford is proud to be one of the first U.S. automakers to align with the international community to limit global warming as part of the Paris Agreement.

How on earth to start this? I've been car/bike/truck crazy since I was a teen. Like John, I had the obligatory Countach poster on the wall. I guess I'm more officially into classic and muscle cars than anything else - I currently have a '65 Sunbeam Tiger that left the factory the same day as I left the hospital as a newborn with my mother. How could I not buy that car? In 2016 my wife and I drove across the USA in a brand-new Dodge Challenger, and then shipped it home. You can read more on www.usa2nz.co.nz. We did this again in 2019 in a 1990 Chev Corvette - you can read about that trip on DriveLife. I'm a driving instructor and an Observer for the Institute of Advanced Motorists - trying to do my bit to make our roads safer.
