2013 Ford Fusion to Help Eliminate Allergens; Featured at Roselle, IL’s Friendly Ford

The all-new 2013 Ford Fusion’s soft-touch materials help minimize pollen; a perfect car for customers of Roselle, IL’s Friendly Ford with spring allergies

Online PR News – 05-April-2013 – Roselle, IL – Ford Motor Co., recently announced that the interior materials in the all-new 2013 Fusion help minimize pollen and ‘touch’ allergens. As several Americans deal with several spring allergies, Ford wanted to help reduce vehicle allergens as much as possible to keep Fusion owners satisfied. Customers of Friendly Ford can take a look at the innovative allergy-reducing materials the 2013 Fusion has to offer at the Roselle, IL dealership.

“Allergies affect large numbers of people, so anything we can do to reduce potential allergens inside Ford vehicles we do through rigorous, controlled testing,” explains supervisor of Core Material Engineering for Ford, Linda Schmalz.

While testing more than 100 materials, Ford engineers found that common high-touch areas in vehicle such as the seats, steering wheel, armrests, door handling and shifters are prone to carrying pollen and ‘touch’ allergens. Engineers also found that natural latex, hexavalent chromium and nickel can cause allergic reactions for some people as well.

Ford engineers incorporated several l allergy-reducing features in the 2013 Fusion that owners with hayfever will appreciate. The air filters in the Fusion’s cabin help reduce particle concentration while improving air cleanliness. The filters also help monitor particle deposits that may affect climate control. Filters will clean the air by capturing soot, smog and tobacco smoke as well.

For the first time, the 2013 Fusion also features SYNC AppLink-compatible Allergy Alert app. This new application quickly notifies drivers of vehicle allergy information. The pollen index rating gives drivers an idea of the types of allergen conditions that may cause a flare-up in personal allergy symptoms. Risk indexes for flu, cough and cold, asthma and ultraviolet rays are also available through the app.
