Ford is putting the equivalent of 10 years and 150,000 miles of wear and tear on hybrid vehicle batteries using a new lab test that takes less than a year to complete. Ford designed a new test the Key Life Test specifically for its new lithium-ion batteries, drawing on more than 20 years of extensive data and experience to deliver reliable hybrid vehicles. Ford is investing $135M in the design, engineering and production of key components including doubling its battery testing capabilities for the five electrified vehicles the company will have in its portfolio by the end of the year: Fusion Hybrid, Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid, C-MAX Hybrid, C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid and Focus Electric. Ford also now has more than 1,000 engineers working on vehicle electrification, which is headquartered at its 285,000-square-foot Advanced Electrification Center in Dearborn. Reference Link
