Ford Team Edison to Make Electric Vehicles a Viable Option for All

Let’s take a moment to take a brief look back at the recent evolution of the automotive industry. Not too long ago, hybrid models started making their way onto lots around the country, including here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL – most recently with the 2019 Ford Fusion lineup, just to name one. But while the 2019 Fusion Hybrid is as impressive, capable, efficient and fun to drive as they come, hybrid models were not always viewed as such. In fact, many scoffed at any hybrid model on the lot and moved right on by. That’s certainly not the case with hybrid vehicles these days, but it is still the case for many electric vehicles. That could be changing very soon, however, thanks to Ford Team Edison – a group of Ford experts brought together to make electric vehicles a viable option for all. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at what Ford Team Edison is doing. (more…)

Ford Using Drones for Manufacturing Plant Inspections

They say a new Ford car, truck or SUV is only as safe as the building it’s being built in. Okay, so maybe no one actually says that, but they should. That’s because the Ford manufacturing plants that build our favorite new Ford model lineups – like the 2019 Ford Mustang and the 2019 Ford Edge – must be as safe and state-of-the-art as the models they house. And now, Ford is taking that safety to whole new levels by using drones for manufacturing plant inspections. Using drones for these inspections not only keep the plants up to code, but also keep the Ford workers in charge of the inspections safer than ever before – as you’ll see in the video below. (more…)
