Ford’s Big Split – Except It Isn’t!

From Transport Evolved.

For more than a month now, there have been persistent rumors that Ford was planning to spin off its electric vehicle division in order to let it behave like a startup.

Last week, during our TEN News Roundup show, we told you that Ford had denied that rumor.

Today, Ford unveiled what it had in mind instead – not a split, but a massive reorganization that will have wide impacts on Ford and its vehicles moving forward.

Special thanks to @Trekculture’s Seán Ferrick for helping us out with an image of a Trill! 😉
