DEARBORN (WKZO) -- Ford Motor Company bested its previous full-year hybrid sales record in just the first five months of 2013.  Erich Merkle, Ford U.S. sales analyst says "The success we are experiencing with hybrids is energizing the whole company.

Ford is now second only to Toyota in the number of hybrid vehicles it sells in the United States with its market share continuing to grow. That market share is up from three-percent last year to an all-time high 15.5-percent through April 2013.
