    What the partners bring3

    What the Partners Bring

    • Ford

      • Manufacturing capacity

      • Hybrid, BEV expertise

        • Fleet electrification allows an energy diversification previously unimagined.

        • From domestic reserves to renewables, multiple sources can power our wheels

      • Strong labor relations

      • Credible leadership

      • A great heritage

      • Understanding of America's urban commuters

      • Stakeholder engagement skills



    • Identify top ten city opportunities to based on the following criteria:

      • The leading-edge cities of sustainable urban mobility

      • Status of ongoing Government Relations engagement, especially with increased opportunities as a result of the 2009 Stimulus Bill (primarily with State governments and Clean Cities Coordinators)

      • Status of ongoing fleet sales processes, including national commercial accounts and government fleets (primarily with procurement officers)

      • Progress toward infrastructure development

      • Strength of relationship with energy/utility partner



    • Utility and government partners install charging infrastructure in 10 cities (may tie to smart metering, or other energy initiatives)

    • Utility (or other party) purchase 1000 PHEVs/BEVs per city

      • Goal is 10K vehicles/year for 5 years

      • Goal is a customer monthly payment that is affordable and on parity with conventional vehicle / fuel costs

      • Phased infrastructure and vehicle roll out plan to Charge Up American

    • Lease vehicles to customers recouping through monthly billing, rate cases, infrastructure and demonstration project monies, etc

    • Utility provides stationary solutions for “end of life” vehicle batteries; Ford ensures battery replacements available; encourage domestic battery supply

    • 10 cities added each year (10K volume / year for 5 years) (Bob/Felix)

    Fleets to utilities are critical

    Fleets to Utilities are critical



    • Continue work with governments and procurement as Government Relations managers work with the local governments to procure vehicles from Stimulus projects (Gov’t Relations, Nancy H)

    • Continue to work the procurement process, develop the customer network and support electric fleet decisions in the FTA Transit Capital Assistance projects

    • Begin Stakeholder Engagement and connects stakeholders with the appropriate Ford contacts

    • Fleet sales continues work with commercial and utility customers in Top Ten cities

    • Develop technology, infrastructure and domestic supply of batteries

    • Publicize attendance at meetings, create buzz around the "Big Idea“ (vision)

    The three year plan

    The Three Year Plan

    • City Leaders

      • Bring together all functions– transport, planning and infrastructure, innovation, telecommunications, finance and economic development, tourism, social services, community development and health care

      • Complete an inclusive plan and connecting process, partnership, proposal accepted

      • Launch and implement phase one, two and three years of integrated pilot

        • Provide plug-in charging stations for public use.

        • Includes stations in federal and public parking garages, retail centers, and (very limited) on public streets.

        • Plug-in infrastructure in public space may use SmartBike stations, street lamps or solar multi-space parking meters.

        • On-street spaces adjacent to infrastructure would be reserved for electric vehicles.

    Integrated urban mobility

    Integrated Urban Mobility

    The three year plan1

    The Three Year Plan

    • City Leaders (continued)

      • Transit services aggressively expanded.

      • Break ground on two new light rail lines and four rapid bus projects.

      • Integrated real time information on all public transportation services will be available to the public online, pushed to personal devices and available on the ground at key transportation hubs.

      • Transit oriented development will be redefined around light rail and high performance bus routes.

      • The city will establish a new hierarchy of multi-modal mobility stations. Super stations will follow best practices in LID and solar energy, may have green roofs, allow easy transfer between multiple modes, feature kiosks with payment options and real time information on all transportation services and provide a host of non-transportation services.

    The three year plan2

    The Three Year Plan

    • City Leaders (continued)

      • Fleet Management

        • Better maintenance

        • Better mix (right vehicle for trip)

        • Better understanding of use (when, who, how long, billable to specific departments)

        • Driving efficiency and fuel economy of fleet drivers

        • Key car sharing fleets in the city (Federal and local governments, private partners like Zipcar) convert to electric vehicles.

          • Transit authority (or city) is the contracting agency

          • Subcontracts out carsharing technology, marketing, operations

          • Technology designed so that over time, other car sharing companies could add their cars to this network, as could individuals if they wanted to make their car's available.

    The three year plan3

    The Three Year Plan

    • Utilities

      • Implementation includes rates structure

      • Internal management system requires management and rates adjustments

      • Mainstream cities are looking for fleets from 6 to 100

      • There is a 2020 target of 1.6 million electric cars

      • SCE is hosting a consortium of utilities companies for training, sharing best practices, and setting up an industry approach towards electrification

      • TBD: (Bob/Felix– they want to come to Dearborn and meet on this face-to-face)

    • Ford

      • Family of Electrified Vehicles

      • Customer Economics

      • City Ramp-Up

    Hybrids Popularity



    • Policy

      • Fleet electrification is not viable today.

        • The hundred or so demos and conversions in the market do not change our national dependence on imported oil. Nor do a thousand. (Need to check with City Contacts, Bob/Felix, and Gov’t Relations)

    • Infrastructure

      • Interface between vehicle and utility still under development

      • Charging infrastructure requires national strategy and timeline

      • Still, existing infrastructure can handle present volumes (Bob/Felix)

    • Affordability

      • Cost of Ownership key to customers

        • Need to recoup cost in 3 years or less

        • Fuel price a key driver to buying behavior

        • Monthly vehicle payment and monthly fuel payment critical to customer affordability



    • Batteries

      • Develop technology, infrastructure and domestic supply of batteries

        • Major cost is the battery

        • Durability / life for BEV cells – still limited to less than vehicle life (end of life challenges)

        • Sufficient domestic cell supply – no single supplier or technology stands out

        • Wide array of vehicle systems and architectures – market place confusion

        • Battery cost estimated to reduce ~3%/yr with technology

        • Battery cost could drop 30 - 40% immediately with volume (need enough vol. to fill a battery line…) (Bob/Felix thoughts)

      • Distribution (Steve Betz)
