Examples of towing in a Sentence

  1. Jim Willett:

  2. Alexander Rossi:

    One of the ways we found most efficient to saving fuel was being in the draft of others, so Townsend( Bell) helped me out quite a bit by towing me around for probably about 12 laps and Ryan( Hunter-Reay, the 2014 Indy 500 winner) helped me at the end by towing me for four laps.

  3. Ford CEO Jim Farley:

    We have a lot of rural customers at Ford that a lot of other brands don't have. We have Super Duty customers who do heavy-duty towing: horse trailers, people in the energy business who are towing big-time loads over very long distances. It's hard for me to imagine that all those customers will go electric in the next 10 years, they're actually as interested in the technology as anyone, it's just their use case is different than how we've designed the vehicles so far. It does feel, at least for Ford, the transition's happening faster than we thought. But again, it's the first inning of a maybe nine-inning game.
