Gas-electric hybrid engines will be available in half the Ford, Lincoln and Mercury lineup by 2010, Ford Motor Co. Chairman and CEO Bill Ford said Wednesday.

He said the automaker will be able to produce 250,000 hybrids in the next five years. It currently has two sport utility vehicles on the market.

“We know that our customers are concerned about energy,” Bill Ford said. “Our job is to alleviate some of their concerns with viable options in their choice of transportation.”

Ford also said the company will be releasing four vehicles that can run on fuel-efficient ethanol in 2006: the F-150 truck and Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car sedans.

Ford said the automaker plans to produce 280,000 ethanol-capable vehicles in 2006.
