The EPA doesn't test every vehicle. Most testing is done by manufacturers. However, the Hybrid got selected for testing by an actual EPA entity.

Or at least that's my understanding of it.
Didn't know hybrid got selected for testing? Any sources?

I have a friend that works for EPA and he isn't working in the office so that may be a few of them. Also with the travel restrictions with EPA who knows when it might happen.

I can't remember the thread, but someone from Ford was on the forum in the past week and confirmed Ford's waiting for EPA testing to be done.
Yes, I thought we are waiting for testing to be completed by Ford not an EPA entity.

IMO, Ford wants the EPA to take their sweet time on the ratings, the hybrid standard was a total failure, they make more money on the ecoboost, the 20k price tag was to attract people then people would choose the Ecoboost ( pay more ) over the hybrid, that did not go as plan, so they want you to buy an ecoboost instead.

How many have went to buy an appliance only to hear that is a display, we can't sale that, BUT we have this model at $$$$ available now? A possible time line from Ford would really destress all hybrid orders
