We are making steady progress on our plan to meet our science-based climate stabilization goal, by significantly improving the fuel economy of our global product portfolio and enabling the use of alternative fuels.
Ford is taking a portfolio approach to developing sustainable technologies and alternative fuel options. Our goal is to provide consumers with a range of different options that improve fuel economy and overall sustainability while still meeting individual driving needs. We call this strategy the “power of choice.”
This section outlines our plans for improving the fuel economy of vehicles with traditional gasoline and diesel powertrains. These plans include implementing advanced engine and transmission technologies as well as improving aerodynamics and reducing weight.
Our migration to alternative fuels and powertrains includes introducing electrified vehicles – i.e., hybrids, plug-in hybrids and all-electric vehicles – as well as implementing vehicles that run on renewable biofuels, natural gas and propane, and implementing advanced clean diesel technologies. We are also working to advance hydrogen fuel cell vehicle technologies.
