Ford has come a long way from the early 2000’s when 10 patents is all they had classified as hybrid technology. Fast forward to today and they nearly have 500 patients devoted to the production of their next generation hybrid vehicles. One such vehicle making headlines is the all new 2013 Ford Fusion hybrid which is expected to go on sale later this year. With an expected mpg of 47 miles, this highly advanced sedan would become the most fuel efficient car on the road.

In a recent article Ford’s chief engineer of Global Core Engineering Hybrid and Electric Vehicles, Chuck Gray, was quoted saying how despite the economic downturn Ford continued to invest in the development of new products like their all-new Fusion hybrid. One such inventor who’s made that commitment to innovation a reality is Ming Kuang, who has been with Ford since the early days of their hybrid technology movement. Kuang has been an invaluable team member to Ford’s evolution of hybrid technology. His commitment can be shown by the nearly 40 patents Ford has with his name on it.

“The work on the Fusion Hybrid is all about a commitment I made a long time ago to have a positive effect on our environment,” said Kuang in a recent Ford article. “It’s about helping make the world my children live in – and the world my children’s children will live in – a better place.”

Ford’s continues to push the boundaries on what was thought to be possible in hybrid technology. With the development of the new 2013 Fusion hybrid, which is expected to get 47mpg and the fully battery powered 2013 Fusion Energi which is expected at 100 MPGe, Ford’s green initiatives have taken to new heights.
