In 1903, Henry Ford launched the Ford Motor Company with a vision for mass production and the dream of a motorist nation. By 1915, Ford had produced its first million cars and held the top spot in the global automobile market. Today the Ford family of motor vehicles totals 7 brands and nearly 60 production models. As Big Three market share continues to slip, Ford looks to adapt its market strategy to meet the needs of a changing industry. With the introduction of their first hybrid, the Ford Escape Hybrid, and the redesign of flagship cars like Mustang and Taurus, the Ford Motor Company has high hopes for the future.
