An Interactive Ford Stand Showcasing Great Technologies

The Ford display at Auto Shanghai 2013 has been transformed with more smart, green and safe technology displays than ever and interactive features sure to deliver an engaging, lively and fun experience for visitors and car enthusiasts.

Ford will demonstrate its leading role as a technology leader in the auto industry by showcasing its voice-activated SYNC with MyFord Touch Mandarin system. The award winning in-car vehicle connectivity technology allows the driver to make calls, read text messages and play music through voice commands or a colour touchscreen.

Ford’s global leadership in vehicle safety also will be highlighted at Auto Shanghai 2013 with another major safety innovation – the industry’s first inflatable rear safety belt. Ford’s unique inflatable rear belt spread impact forces across more than five times the area of conventional seat belts, reducing pressure on the chest while helping to control head and neck motion. The technology has already been employed on the Explorer and will be made available on the new Mondeo.

With its continuous efforts to bring more fuel efficient engine options to Chinese customers, Ford will display its EcoBoost engine family at the show, including the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, the smallest although powerful addition to the EcoBoost family, highlighting the company’s role in providing sustainable power solutions.

Other interactive displays include:

Ford’s Green Calculator can calculate daily savings that can be attained by making use of Ford’s green technologies
