U.S. Automakers Welcome Utility Partners To FreedomCAR and Fuel Partnership
Date:6/20/2008

DEARBORN, Mich., June 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Council for Automotive Research LLC (USCAR), whose members are Chrysler LLC, Ford Motor Company and General Motors Corporation, welcomed the addition of electric utility partners to the FreedomCAR and Fuel Partnership, as announced by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today (June 20) at the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn, Mich.

DTE Energy and Southern California Edison were named as new members of the Partnership by U.S. DOE Assistant Secretary of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Alexander (Andy) Karsner, who said the announcement "demonstrates a shared public-private sector commitment to accelerate the research, development and deployment of Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles from the laboratory to the marketplace."

Speaking on behalf of USCAR and the U.S. automakers, Gerhard Schmidt, chief technical officer and vice president for Research and Advanced Engineering at Ford, acknowledged the importance of PHEVs, while noting they are just one of many alternative-fuel vehicles being researched and developed by the Detroit Three.

"Our production-focused research includes everything from increasingly efficient cars and trucks with advanced gasoline and clean diesel engines to hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engines and fuel cells. It also includes vehicles powered by biofuels and ethanol, hybrid-electric vehicles and, of course, plug-in hybrids. Clearly, there is no silver bullet approach," he said.

This multiple pathways approach to future transportation is at the heart of the FreedomCAR and Fuel Partnership, whose vision is a clean and sustainable transportation energy future that reduces our nation's dependence on foreign oil and minimizes regulated emissions and CO2, yet preserves freedom of mobility and vehicle choice for consumers.

At USCAR, the focus is on pre-competitive R&D that results in enabling technologies. Individually, the U.S. automakers are puttin
