Ford Motor Company is going to increase the number of electrified vehicles it builds to more than 100,000 units annually in 2013; three times the current level of production. Ford will be producing five different EVs in 2013, including the Transit Connect Electric van , the Focus Electric – which begins reaching customers later this year, plus the two new C-MAX vehicles (C-MAX Hybrid and C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid), and a fifth, as-yet unnamed hybrid.

The report says that demand for LEDs is expected to rise by double-digit percentages for at least the next three years.  In 2009, 63 billion units were consumed out of the 75 billion unit capacity worldwide.  The worst-case scenario is a rise in prices for mid-range and high-end computers and HDTVs because of their larger displays
