Gasoline-electric Hybrid Technology Gains Momentum At Fords
Gasoline-electric hybrid technology continues to gain momentum and Ford Motor Company researchers are working hard to advance innovative hybrid solutions to address consumer interest. Ford unveiled a hydrogen-fueled, battery-powered plug-in Ford Edge at the 2007 Washington (D.C.) Auto Show in January.
Nanotechnology In the field of nanotechnology, where dimensions are on a scale of 1,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair, Ford scientists are focusing on ways to improve the performance of batteries in hybrid vehicles, increase hydrogen storage, continue to strengthen things like cast aluminum used in engine blocks and other automotive applications.
