Ford Hybrids in Sacramento Area Getting Smarter Thanks to EV+

In new Ford vehicles from Elk Grove Ford, those of us in the greater Sacramento area can find many of the latest technology features on board. These serve a wide array of functions, giving us better performance, and plenty of entertainment. Today, we'd like to discuss one new feature that will also help you be more efficient in a Ford hybrid.

EV+ is a technology that learns driving habits and makes adaptations in order to give you a smarter, economical ride. This improved feature uses GPS navigation to map these routes and based on the data, EV+ can work to switch from gas to electric mode in the most ideal situations.

For example, if you were driving either the C-Max Hybrid or Fusion Hybrid and close to your destination, Ford EV+ would activate the electric motors if there is ample battery left. That way you can cruise using EV mode, saving gasoline in the process.

It's pretty cool, and we're routinely impressed with the innovative new technology Ford continues to provide us in vehicles like the Ford Focus and more.

To learn more, visit us here at Elk Grove Ford located at 9645 Auto Center Drive Elk Grove, CA 95757. We're always happy to answer any questions you might have regarding new Ford hybrids, or gas-powered vehicles that interest you, and can set up a test drive in one that piques your interest.
