This is the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, which its makers will say be the most fuel efficient luxury saloon on sale in America when it goes on sale this autumn.
The car, unveiled at the New York motor show, is Lincoln's first hybrid, and will be a rival for the likes of the Lexus HS 250h, a car Ford makes a point of saying the Lincoln has more space and kit than.
The MKZ hybrid is expected to average 49mpg in the US city driving test. It is powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine running on the Atkinson cycle and an electric motor, which combine to produce 191bhp. The car can run at up to 47mph on electric only power.
Ford also outlined its electric car plans in New York. It will put five electric vehicles on sale by 2013, starting with the Connect Electric in late 2010, the Focus Electric in 2011, a next-generation hybrid electric vehicle and a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle in 2013.
