09/22/2011, There are times when inconsiderate drivers park their cars too close to ours, and we come back from the mall, grocers or a nice dinner only to find that they have dented our doors or scrapped a bit of paint off them by opening the doors too hard. We’re guessing this pain is amplified especially if you’re driving a high-end sports car, however thanks to Ford, if you see the […]
09/21/2011, We do know that the Ford E-Bike concept will be able to “talk” to a Samsung Galaxy S2 which is attached to the front of the bike, but while we covered more of the software side of the E-Bike sometime last week, here is further information on the hardware front.

09/13/2011, Electric bikes are handy, especially for those who prefer not pedaling all the way to work and reach all sweaty in the process. Now, if you weren’t a fan of e-bikes back then, perhaps this e-bike concept by Ford may cool enough to convert you.
09/12/2011, When people talk about tuning up or playing around with their cars – it usually involves chop shops and modifications to the car’s body and stuff under the hood. Rarely you will hear about people hacking the car’s electronics to make it do what they want – but it looks like all that is going to change in the future. Ford and Bug Labs have announced today that they are […]
09/12/2011, Spotify has been touted as a possible serious contender for iTunes, and with its arrival in the states it’s only a matter of time before we see if those predictions will come true. The good news for those who have readily adopted Spotify and its services is that during the TechCrunch organized Hackathon, Ford together with Spotify teamed up together to showcase Spotify being integrated into the car using Ford’s […]
09/01/2011, One thing about teens getting their driver’s license for the first time – they might think life is a video game and put the pedal to the metal, resulting in a speeding ticket at best alongside irked parents. Well, Ford might have something that parents would definitely approve of – that is, the Ford MyKey system that will be able to limit a vehicle’s top speed (a Ford, obviously) to […]
08/30/2011, Ford has announced the Ford Evos, a Hybrid sedan concept car that is constantly connected to the cloud. While it is only a concept at the moment, it is -mostly- based on ideas and technologies that can be achievable in the near-future. For instance, having a constant connection between the car and the Internet is merely a cost issue, not a technological one. In Ford’s vision, the Evos knows everything […]
08/22/2011, When it comes to our electric vehicles and hybrids, they seem largely limited to cars, while more fuel-hungry vehicles such as lorries, trucks, SUVs, trailers, etc have been left out of the fuel-saving loop. Not anymore apparently, as Ford and Toyota have teamed up and will jointly develop a hybrid powertrain (a combination of an electric motor and gas engine) for light trucks and SUVs.
08/18/2011, There is nothing quite like a dry run to make sure that the final, released product will be up to par – case in point, Ford’s all-new Focus Electric driving simulator has been tested by potential drivers in order for them to give their bouquets and brickbats so that the MyFord Touch interface that will come with the vehicle will cater to most people’s preferences. The simulator will bring you […]
08/10/2011, So you’ve just bought yourself a brand new electric vehicle (EV) from Ford. Good for you! Now there’s one less person in the world contributing to pollution, but why stop there? Why not take it a step further and install solar panels for your home? If you have the spare cash or are willing to pay on installments just to go green and do your part for the Earth, it […]
06/22/2011, Ford loyalists, fans and muscle car enthusiasts should all be familiar with the iconic Ford Mustang, but the car pictured above is no Ford Mustang, it’s not even a real car – yet. The concept Ford Cobra Snakehead car was designed Andrus Ciprian could actually be made into reality through a Ford-Shelby collaboration, and judging by its looks, could we be looking at yet another car by Ford that will be able […]
05/24/2011, Just when you thought that electronically controlled chairs with a built-in massager and memory seat functions are the epitome of vehicle chair technology, Ford comes around to surprise us all with their ECG Seat – it is a unique driver’s seat that is smart enough to monitor the occupant’s heart function thanks to half a dozen embedded sensors located on the backrest which is capable of detecting “electrical impulses generated […]
05/05/2011, Families who can’t live without the internet, especially on long road trips will be glad to know that if they buy a 2012 Ford Focus with Ford SYNC, long road trips don’t necessarily mean no more internet. The car will have the ability to turn into a mobile hotspot. All users have to do is plug a phone with a data connection into the car and enable the hotspot feature. […]
04/21/2011, Everyone wants to wear the underwear that Captain Planet wore all those years ago on kids’ TV, with the ‘going green’ fever not exactly slowing down anytime soon. No sir, that is not happening anytime soon, which is also a good thing for the world (and the next generation of kids). TeleNav has just released an infographic that promotes Earth Day by encouraging drivers to actually think about their vehicles’ […]
