AutoWeek recently reported that Ford Motor Company division president Steve Lyons has commented that Sanyo Company's limited amount of nickel-metal hydride battery
packs will only allow Ford to produce approximately 20,000 Escape Hybrid Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV) for the 2005 model year.
The car borrows from Toyota's blueprints for the Prius, and combines a 300-volt nickel-metal hydride battery
pack (under the cargo floor) with a more efficient version of the Escape's standard two-liter engine (which shuts off at traffic lights, thanks to an Integrated Starter Generator).
Its scratch-built powertrain uses a Panasonic nickel-metal hydride battery

However, a nickel-metal hydride battery
today can provide almost as much run time as an alkaline--550 minutes versus 600--and can be recharged in addition.
GM Ovonic is doing prototype testing on a new hybrid-specific nickel-metal hydride battery
Stempel, chairman of Energy Conversion Devices, which is developing a nickel-metal hydride battery
that offers longer range for electric vehicles, said his industry has to do a better job of stressing these cars' positives.
He played a key role in the development and commercialization of our Ovonic nickel-metal hydride battery
for both consumer and automotive applications, and had a leading role in the development of the Ovonic regenerative fuel cell technology.
The suggested sticker price is $53,999, and about $20,000 of that amount is for the advanced nickel-metal hydride battery
