Ford workers have added production of the 2013 C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid at the Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne that has become the poster child for a work force trained to build five very different vehicles.

The plug-in joins the C-Max hybrid, as well as the Ford Focus, Focus ST performance car and Focus Electric.

They all ride on the same compact car underpinnings, but the complexity on the assembly line is real and the plant was designed to make as many as five different styles of vehicle from two different platforms.
