Ford (NYSE:F) didn't make a big impression when it started building hybrids a few years back, but lately its gains have been hard to miss. Ford has already sold more hybrids in 2013 than it did in all of 2012, and Ford's market share is booming – just as sales of Toyota's (NYSE:TM) Prius are falling behind.
