Michigan Breaking News: Ford to Update Software on Hybrids to Boost Mileage

by Wochit 0:55 mins

Ford Motor Co will offer free software updates on its hybrid models to boost their real-world fuel economy and better align with the gas mileage advertised on the window sticker, a company executive said on Tuesday. Among the improvements, Ford plans to increase the maximum all-electric speed on those vehicles from 62 miles per hour to 85 mph. This will boost fuel efficiency by allowing the car to rely on the lithium-ion battery for a longer period of time. The move affects the Ford C-Max and Fusion as well as the Lincoln MKZ hybrids.
