While he didn't say the company would do so, he did say that such a car would be "very consistent with our product strategy".

Unlike the 2011 MKZ Hybrid we tested two years ago, the latest MKZ shares no body panels or interior design with the Ford Fusion mid-size sedan on which it's based. And we found the 2013 MKZ...
