Ford's efforts to reduce our environmental impact go beyond our product actions. We also are working to conserve resources and make our manufacturing processes more environmentally friendly. A new painting process we developed results in a smaller and cleaner paint shop.
Ford's redeveloped Rouge facility is topped with one of the world's largest living roofs designed to absorb rainwater and carbon dioxide and reduce energy costs by providing natural insulation.
Our efforts were acknowledged in 2014 when we were named by Interbrand as the Best Global Green Brand in the world… (and) for 2015, Ford Motor Company was named on the Ethisphere Institutes's list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the sixth year in a row, the only automaker to earn the recognition in each of the last six years. Nonetheless, we know our sustainability journey is far from over, and we are determined to go further. See the full report here.
Ford’s electrification strategy involves three types of electrified vehicles – hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all electric – to provide customers with fuel economy options and help reduce CO2 emissions.
Vehicles powered in part by gasoline and part by a battery-driven electric motor. They seamlessly switch between the gasoline engine, electric motor or a combination of both to offer efficiency and performance. The battery is automatically recharged by the gasoline engine and through regenerative braking. Hybrids do not plug in....less
These are progressive hybrids that expand capability by providing the option of plugging in or not. To enhance the hybrid experience and maximize the battery capability, drivers can choose to plug into a standard 120V or available 240V outlet. By fully charging before driving, you may see potential fuel savings and reduce your carbon footprint. Ford PHEVs feature an electric vehicle (EV) mode button which allows the driver to choose electric-only mode (EV Now), saving plug-in power for later use (EV Later), or driving in normal hybrid operation (Auto EV). PHEVs offer the best of both worlds, giving the driver the opportunity to drive as if in an EV for short trips or in a hybrid for longer trips.
Powered completely by a rechargeable battery so you never need a drop of gasoline or an oil change. Key features are the electric motor, charge port and lithium-ion battery pack. Battery electric vehicles provide a CO2-free driving experience. Drivers plug their vehicle in to fully charge the battery pack. While driving, regenerative braking also aids in charging the battery....less
