How Technology Is Boosting Hybrids' Gas Mileage

Electric and hybrid vehicles made a lot of news at this month's International CES in Las Vegas and the big auto show in Detroit. The Nissan LEAF and General Motors' (NYSE: GM  ) Chevy Volt have sold more than any other electrified vehicles, but Ford (NYSE: F  ) and others are working to narrow the gap.

Have you ever been in a hybrid vehicle? Do you know how it saves energy and achieves great mileage?

At CES, Motley Fool analyst Rex Moore was able to take a ride with Ford's Mike Tinskey in a 2013 Fusion Hybrid. In part two of this two-part test drive, Tinskey talks about specialized technology such as EV+, which uses GPS to learn your most frequent routes in order to maximize your electric-only driving.

Ford has been performing incredibly well as a company over the past few years -- it's making good vehicles, is consistently profitable, recently reinstated its dividend, and has done a remarkable job paying down its debt. The stock has recently taken off, and it appears investors have started to notice what Ford is doing right. Does this create an incredible buying opportunity, or are there hidden risks with the stock that investors need to know about? To answer that, one of our top equity analysts has compiled a premium research report with in-depth analysis on whether Ford is a buy right now, and why.
