Ford Reflex

Electric car Ford Reflex

The Ford Reflex (or REFL3X, as written on the vehicle name) is a concept car at the 2006 North American International Auto Show presented, which, according to Ford, "proves small cars can be bold and Americans." It is a technological showcase that includes the solar panel powered headlights, integrated child seat, mounted Baby Cam with a dashboard display, inflatable rear safety belts and an interior of natural rubber outsole made of Nike sports shoes reassured. A production version of the Reflex design has not yet been announced. It has a modern diesel - electric hybrid engine with a new generation of lithium-ion batteries deliver up to 65 miles per U.S. gallon (3.6 L/100 km, 78 mpg IMP) of diesel fuel and the vehicle can accelerate from 0 up to help 60 mph (97 km / h) in 7 seconds.

The Reflex concept car is similar in size and general configuration as the Mazda Kabura concept, and if they both ordered the production of a common platform could share, set with styling and powertrain differences separated the pair. For example, while the concept of one integrated Kubura 2.0L DOHC 16-valve piston engine, a production Kabura could end up with a rotary engine, as used in the Mazda RX-8. The reflex would likely have a more conventional gasoline or diesel (or hybrid) engine.

The concept is in addition to an electric motor at the rear of its hybrid propulsion system on the front axle. The rear motor provides all-wheel drive capability, improved driving dynamics and fuel economy benefits of a full hybrid vehicle. Reflection energy is found stored in a new generation of lithium-ion battery, with the same technology in mobile phones. Ford was the first manufacturer to produce an electric vehicle with this type of battery system with the introduction of the electric Ford Ka research vehicle in 2000. As a contribution to a reflective power and performance are unique headlamps and taillamps that integrate solar panels. The Ford-patented battery-Lighting improves fuel economy by the use of solar energy has the power to the on-board batteries, while the absorption and utilization of daylight saving time in the night.
