Two leading manufacturers of hybrid vehicles, Ford and Toyota have joined up to develop a hybrid system for light truck and SUV customers.

Ford and Toyota say that their collaboration could bring cheaper hybrid technologies to customers sooner than either company could have accomplished alone.

Toyota President Akio Toyoda added: “Not only is this tie-up clearly one aimed at making automobiles ever better, it should also become an important building block for future mobility in the U.S. By building a global, long-term relationship with Ford, our desire is to be able to continue to provide people in America automobiles that exceed their expectations.”
