Ford Bringing Hybrid Tech to Conventional Cars

FordFusion

Some of the http://www.pereverges.cat/viagra-sale technology that helps make hybrid vehicles so efficient will soon be making its way into non-hybrid cars as well. Ford has recently announced that Auto Start-Stop technology, which has been used in gasoline-electric hybrids since 2004, will be introduced in some conventional cars, crossovers and http://www.revistadeteatro.com/real-levitra-without-prescription SUVs in North America starting in 2012. Auto Start-Stop automatically turns off the engine when the vehicle comes to http://www.kachinwomen.com/viagra-on-women a stop, and then restarts it again when the vehicle is ready to move again.

Using Auto Start-Stop will increase fuel economy in city driving by at least 4 percent up to as much as 10 percent, depending on the particular vehicle size and usage. Auto Start-Stop also reduces all tailpipe emissions to zero when the vehicle is at a stop.

Ford is already making Auto Start-Stop available in Europe. According to Ford, "is standard on the ECOnetic models of the Ford Ka and Mondeo, and is launching now on Focus, C-MAX and Grand C-MAX." In North America, Auto Start-Stop will be available on nassmc.org hybrid models of the Escape and Fusion, as well as Lincoln MKZ.

FORD not the first

My wife's BMW 1-Series 120d had Auto-Stop start back in 2008. I believe the technology was available in BMWs from 2007.

It is not true that vehicle emissions come to zero from the tailpipe when the engine stops. The typical tail pipe has a volume of 50 litres and when the engine stops the online us viagra emissions which were on their way out continue to buy levitra at a discount do so, but at reduced rate.

Auto-Stop start technology isn't new in non hybrid cars but still, good to know that Ford is making an effort. I hope that all other vehicle companies will soon follow.

"[Auto Start-Stop] technology has been used in gasoline-electric hybrids since 2004."

Actually, my '03 Civic Hybrid has this feature.
