Ford & GE Working Together to Produce Ventilators

Ford Motor Company and GE Healthcare are now working together to start production of ventilators for COVID-19 patients across the United State. The goal is to produce 50,000 units in 100 days and up to 30,000 a month after that if needed. The ventilator design was quickly approved by the FDA and created by Airon Corp. with a simplified, but effective design.

The new GE/Airon Model A-E ventilator operates using air pressure and doesn’t require electricity, which allows it to be used in a variety of environments and locations that may not have easy access to power. It has been specifically designed to meet the needs of most COVID-19 patients suffering respiratory issues, and can be quickly produced in large numbers.

“The Ford and GE Healthcare teams, working creatively and tirelessly, have found a way to produce this vitally needed ventilator quickly and in meaningful numbers,” said Ford president and CEO Jim Hackett. “By producing this ventilator in Michigan, in strong partnership with the UAW, we can help health care workers save lives, and that’s our No. 1 priority.”

Working around the clock, 500 paid volunteer UAW employees are going to build the ventilators on three shifts at the factory in Michigan. Airon currently produces three ventilators per day in Florida, but Ford plans to make up to 7,200 per week once it reaches full production speed in the coming weeks.

Electric Ford Transit Van Arriving in 2022

Ford will be introducing an all-electric version of the Ford Transit van in 2022, which will be available for purchase at dealerships in the United States and Canada. The primary goal of the all-electric Transit is to help businesses become more sustainable, lower ownership costs and improve air quality and noise levels in cities across the country.

Leading the commercial van segment for 35 years with the popular E-Series, Transit and Transit Connect cargo vans, Ford has the experience and technology businesses need to get their work done. After purchasing an all-electric Ford Transit van, owners will get access to Ford’s incredible commercial service network, top-quality upfitting services and the largest public charging network in North America.

Built in the United States, the new all-electric Ford Transit is another piece of Ford’s $11.5 billion investment in electric vehicle technology. The electric Ford Transit will join the already announced electric Ford F-150 and stylish Mustang Mach-E vehicles coming to dealers in the coming months and years.

Like many of Ford’s Commercial Vehicles, the all-electric Ford Transit will feature the technology businesses need to optimize efficiency and reduce waste. Connected technology like Ford Telematics, Ford PassConnect with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and Ford Data Service tools provide more information to employees and managers in the vehicle and remotely.

F-150 & Mustang Earn Ford Top 3 Spot in Dependability Study

Automotive analyst J.D. Power recently named Ford Motor Company one of the top automakers in the company’s Vehicle Dependability Study, with Ford tied for a top three position. The annual study measures problems experienced over the past year by original owners of three-year-old vehicles.

Among the largest contributors to Ford’s performance in the study was its SYNC 3 infotainment system. Often times, in-car technology can be a source of frustration among drivers, and SYNC 3 makes it easy with an intuitive user interface, simple voice commands and smartphone integration.

The Ford F-150 was named the top vehicle in the large light-duty pickup truck segment, and the Ford Mustang earned the top award for sporty midsize cars. Customers also agree with J.D. Power, with the Ford F-150 and Mustang being America’s best selling truck and world’s best-selling sports coupe.

“For us, high quality means more than a great experience in the first few months of ownership; it includes a great experience throughout a customer’s ownership journey, and these results affirm our commitment to building high-quality vehicles,” said Lind Cash, Ford vice president of Quality and New Model Launch Program.

Want more information about the 2020 Ford F-150, Mustang, or any other high-quality Ford vehicle? Come see us today at Capistrano Ford and one of our sales associates will be able to answer your questions.
