that is a misunderstanding ( or the press being stupid fukheads), ford pays royalties to toyota because some of their designs were similar, so they are doing that to avoid precautions, the hybrid system ford employs shares no parts w/ anybody elses'

yea, it somehow made it to press that Ford was buying entire parts or systems from toyota; there could have been some design sharing, but its a Ford Built hybrid <p>
