DEARBORN (WKZO) -- People seem to really like the hybrid vehicles offered by Ford.

The automaker says it's on pace to sell a record number of those vehicles this year after topping 21-thousand sold in the first quarter of the year.  Ford officials say they now have a 16-percent share of the hybrid market, which us up four-percent from 2012.

The automaker's best year for the electric-gasoline vehicles was 2010 when it sold 35,496.
