Ford Motor Company the Ford Transit Connect electric in the Chicago Auto Show 2010 introduced and confirms that it is small emissions 0 (zero) in the hands of the operators fleet later in the year 2010.
2011 Ford Transit Connect electric with a unit of measure a force built and integrated by special electrical current different Azure Dynamics.
“Ford Transit Connect electric demonstrates how we our relations and the kinematic chain of more efficient energy technologies from the lab in the road and hybrid use our programs before,” said Derrick Kuzak, Ford Gruppe Vice President of global product development. “This is not only an ideal vehicle for environmentally conscious fleet operators, it is an important part of the Ford Futura.”
In addition to the Ford Transit Connect electric is planning three more electrified vehicles in electrical 2011 2012-the focus is on the market, an electric vehicle from hybrid by 2012 and a hybrid of the next generation by 2012.
Loaded get on and move
Transit Connect electric is suitable for fleets that run routes for short distance with frequent stop and go driving urban and suburban environments and a central location for the collection of daily predictable. The vehicle is a similar tempo speed up if transit connect, and you have gas powered Ford a maximum speed of 75 km/h, has a specific range of up to 80 km on a full charge.
Owners have the option of collecting the Ford Transit Connect electric with a standard 120 v outlet or preferably a load station 240 V in six to eight hours at the base of operations for optimal reload user installs. A portable cable with both types of outlets works for reloading on both types of sites.
Port of loading of the vehicle is significantly higher than the rear wheel to the passenger. The built-in battery liquid cooling 28 kWh lithium package is loaded, if the port of loading to a power outlet. In the vehicle, a built-in Charger AC converts direct current of the power grid to charge the battery.
“We are excited about the potential of our electrified vehicles,” said Praveen Cherian, program manager for the Ford Transit Connect electric, which added that buyers of electric vehicles are now similar to the first user of hybrid vehicles. “People were a little hesitant hybrid technology in the first, but now the accept and take.” “We hope that the same applies to electric vehicles”.
If the vehicle is running, power from the battery to the module of of unity of the motor controller provided electrical power. The motor controller uses accelerator driver entry convert current passing by battery into three signals exactly time used to drive the engine.
The integrated DC/DC converter allows vehicle main battery pack free of charge battery built-in 12V, the vehicle, accessories such as such as lights, power steering and pump drives. The Ford Transit Connect electric battery use without reducing the area of the room and Interior passenger load must be included.
