F-150 Lightning discount, Renault-Geely hybrid push, Toyota fuel cells: Today’s Car News

A joint venture between Renault and Geely appears to target Toyota’s juggernaut. Toyota hopes to edge closer to hydrogen fuel-cell profitability this decade—infrastructure aside. And there’s F-150 Lightning pricing news, and it’s not another price hike. This and more, here at Green Car Reports. 

Ford is reportedly offering a $1,500 discount on the 2023 F-150 Lightning in some regions. That’s after a series of price hikes that leave it costing nearly 50% higher, in its base Lightning Pro version, than it originally did for 2022. 

A $7.7 billion joint venture between Renault and Volvo and Polestar parent Geely appears to be taking on Toyota for hybrid supremacy

. Potentially also involving the oil company Aramco, it “aims to become the leader in next-generation hybrid and highly efficient powertrain solutions to meet worldwide demand for the years to come.”

Meanwhile, Toyota is shifting its hydrogen fuel-cell attention toward Europe and China—in addition to the U.S.—as it targets cost reductions and even profitability for the tech. It’s now seeking to get fuel-cell systems into 100,000 vehicles annually by 2030. _______________________________________
