Raj Nair ’87

Raj Nair ’87, vice president of engineering for Global Product Development for Ford Motor Company, will lead Ford into a joint venture to develop fuel cell cars. From the news release:

Raj Nair will lead Ford in a three-way joint effort with Daimler and Renault-Nissan to launch the world’s first affordable, mass-market fuel-cell electric car (FCEV) as early as 2017.

“Working together will significantly help speed this technology to market at a more affordable cost to our customers,” said Nair, group vice president of global product development at Ford.

“We will all benefit from this relationship as the resulting solution will be better than any one company working alone.”
