Connected World Awards Connected Car of the Year to 2013 Ford Fusion Energi

The 2013 Ford Fusion Energi received the Connected Car of the Year Award from Connect World. The Fusion stands at the top with its ability to connect drivers safely and conveniently from their vehicle.

Online PR News – 01-February-2013 – Clinton, NC – The 2013 Ford Fusion Energi was named the Connected Car of the Year by Connected World. With standard features such as SYNC and MyFord Touch, the Fusion Energi provides drivers both convenience and safety with advanced technology. The Fusion Energi debuted this year as an all-electric mid-sized sedan featuring many of Ford’s latest innovations.

SYNC is Ford’s award-winning infotainment system available across the Ford lineup. SYNC allows passengers to connect compatible phones to the system to play music or to do hands-free calling. SYNC services include vocal turn-by-turn directions, personalized traffic alerts, text message reading, daily information, and a 411 business search.

The Fusion Energi’s innovations make driving more enjoyable and safer. The driver assistance technologies available on the Fusion were previously only on luxury models with high costs attached. There are radar, ultrasonic, optical, and motion sensors that can be placed to alert drivers of hazards and to offer assistance. Available systems on the Fusion are collision warning, adaptive cruise control, active park assist, blind spot monitor, driver alert system, lane-keeping system, and a rearview camera.

The Fusion Energi stays high-tech even while drivers are away from the car. A mobile app can help track battery charging, find a charging station, and reduce charging cost. “With improvements in sensing and control technologies, we now provide unprecedented levels of assistance to our Fusion customers,” said John Jraiche the Ford Fusion chief engineer. Ford is leading the way with the Fusion Energi to a more connected driver who keeps hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
