Ford recently filed for a patent that features a motorcycle integrated into what looks to be a Focus or Escort wagon. The company is calling it a "multimodal transportation apparatus," sort of like what Honda did back in the '80s with the integrated Motocompo foldable two-wheeler. Unlike the Motocompo, Ford's bike emerges from the front of the car, a la the Batmobile, to ride to whatever location comes next.
Of course, just because Ford filed for a patent doesn't mean this is happening. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office publishes all applications 18 months after submission.
