The Future Essentials for Road Safety.

Building on Henry Ford’s vision of opening the highways to all mankind, Ford’s Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with Cross-Traffic Alert was amongst the latest advanced technology features showcased at the recent Ford’s Innovation for Millions event.

BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert smart feature helps detect vehicles in a driver’s blind spots, and alerting them using indicator lights and audio alerts - scanning 20 meters in each direction, the equivalent of seven parking spaces

Another example that Ford is doing more with less is its award-winning EcoBoost engine. The 1.0-liter EcoBoost is small but powerful and delivers a 15% reduction in CO2 emissions and better gas mileage, even though its power and torque rivals a traditional 1.6-liter petrol engine. Check out the graphic below and use the comments section to tell us about some other environmentally sustainable technologies that are small but powerful.

With the approach of Earth Day, it’s time to celebrate smart ways to save energy and reduce emissions – by doing more with less. Ford created the modern production line in 1913 and changed the face of manufacturing forever. In the 21st century, we’re doing it again. Our cars are greener than ever, but a green product is only as green as its production. Here are some exciting ways that we continue to save energy and reduce waste. What are some of the ways that you manage to do more with less?

Did you know, recycling a ton of paper saves 13 trees, 2.5 barrels of oil, 31,780 liters of water, four tons of CO2 and four cubic meters of landfill? A ton may sound a lot, but if we all do our bit, together we can make a huge difference. With World Earth Day approaching on April 22, we would like to share with you what Ford is doing to protect our environment. One goal in Ford’s sustainable strategy is to identify opportunities to use recycled material in its vehicles — and some of those materials might surprise you. Have you been recycling in any creative or unusual ways? Use the comments section below to tell us how.
