Both Ford, Nissan buy Toyota's Hybrid System!
Admitting "If you can't beat 'em, Join 'em!", Ford on March 9th finalized an agreement to use Toyota's Hybrid Technology System for use in future Ford products, joining Nissan, which signed a similar agreement in 2002, as reported by Rueters.
Ford "has not yet completed their hybrid system". Using Toyota's system instead might help.
Nissan will use it first in the 2006 Altima.
Toyota has taken a rather altruistic approach to their advanced emissions and efficiency systems, saying any such advancements should not be held by only one manufacturer.
Question is, if Ford, and Nissan will bow down to Mighty 'Yota, who's next?
