Now, you're probably wondering how can the "Green Zone" make Ford electric cars more efficient? Well this system, which happens to be a subsidiary of Nokia technology, will give drivers the ability to use their navigation screen, or a website, to set up "green zones" where their vehicle will automatically run on battery power. This will reduce the need for a manual transition from gas to battery as well as determine the most efficient time to use battery or gas power depending on traffic and road conditions.
Electric car drivers use their vehicles differently. Some find the battery is most efficient when operated at slower speeds as opposed to highway speeds. Others may choose to wait to use their battery power for specific roadways towards the end of a commute rather than from the moment they pull out of the driveway. With all of these factors in mind, Ford was in search of a more efficient solution. This is where Ford's Green Zone comes in, providing technology that is so precise, it will help motorists utilize their vehicle's battery-life to the best of its abilities.
Although the "Green Zone" for Ford electric cars is still a few years away from production, Ford is determined to have several of its products feature the up and coming technology.
