Toyota owns the rights and technology to the "hybrid" engine any vehicle made with a hybrid engine whether its Ford Kia or Honda Toyota gets a cut. Its like Blue Ray players Sony invented the tech so any manufacturer like LG Microsoft Sony gets a cut. Ford went to Toyota to build this car and the fact they got scarred and cut and run only makes it worse after such a short period. Electric vehicles are gonna take off and unless your not making billion dollars profits first thats your only reward??

Sorry, that is not true.   This was discussed and debated and debunked years ago at the GreenHybrid site.   Ford has numerous patents on their hybrid software and hardware.

There wasnt a royalty but there was a exchange. It still doesnt excuse the fact that Ford gave up on the c-max when the hybrid market has only been climbing and climbing. Ford 500,000 Toyota 10 million.

The Ford Escape Hybrid, the first hybrid electric sport utility vehicle (SUV), was released in 2005. Toyota and Ford entered into a licensing agreement in March 2004 allowing Ford to use 20 patents[citation needed] from Toyota related to hybrid technology, although Ford's engine was independently designed and built.[citation needed] In exchange for the hybrid licenses, Ford licensed patents involving their European diesel engines to Toyota.[citation needed] Toyota announced calendar year 2005 hybrid electric versions of the Toyota Highlander Hybrid and Lexus RX 400h with 4WD-i, which uses a rear electric motor to power the rear wheels, negating the need for a transfer case.

A Ford spokesman says Ford didn’t copy much of Toyota’s hybrid blueprint and didn’t necessarily have to obtain the rights to use all of the approximately 20 patents it grabbed from Toyota. Ford has 100 of its own hybrid-related patents on the vehicle.​

The C​Max is or is not using any of Toyota's patents?
