Ford has always prided itself on making some of the smartest technology available in the new Ford lineup here at Lindsay Ford of Wheaton. That includes many innovative features that do their part to increase efficiency, and reduce harmful emissions. Now, some of that technology just got better, as Ford improved its smartness.
With the EV+ feature, the technology is actively learning how to make your vehicle more efficient. It’s currently found in both the Ford Fusion and C-Max Hybrid. It works by using GPS navigation to learn the routes you frequent, and once it has understood these patterns, EV+ can switch over to electric mode and save you gasoline.
So, say you were driving in the C-Max Hybrid and were near your destination. If there is a little bit of battery left for the hybrid to use, Ford EV+ will turn it on, and keep you in EV mode based on its data.
Here at Lindsay Ford of Wheaton we’re certainly amazed by this technology and how it can help so many people save on fuel costs. And, it goes to show you the many ways automotive technology has evolved, particularly with new Ford vehicles.
