GM, Ford in contrast in plug-in readiness

DETROIT General Motors Corp. will work with more than 30 U.S. electric utilities on a network for customers to easily recharge its Volt plug-in hybrid when the car debuts in late 2010, according to executives of the automaker.

Meanwhile, Nancy Gioia, director of sustainable mobility technologies and hybrid vehicle programs at Ford Motor Co., said that automaker is at least five years away from manufacturing big numbers of plug-in electric vehicles for the mass market.
