Could smarter parking lead to lower CO2 emissions?

MEGATRENDS USA: Ford’s open electrification strategy – it’s all about reducing CO2 – Automotive World.

Well in the above linked article it seems that Ford believes that using smart parking technology in conjunction with Hybrid and Electric Drive Trains will lower the emission of CO2.

Mike Tinsey of Ford says that  “Electrification is a big part of this target. But what does not get talked about is why the EV is more efficient.” 

I only hope that Ford is really committed to the concept of Electrification.  I really want an affordable 200+ Mile EV, whether it be a Ford, or a Tesla.  Ford has the pedigree and production capability to make it a reality if only they follow through.

Here is to hoping they do what they say.
