Ford is placing LCDs on either side of new Hybrid speedometers. Similar to the concept cars which have been seen at all of this years car shows, the LCDs can be configured to show different kinds of information.
Ford breaks the different standard displays down like this:
–Inform: Fuel level and battery charge status
–Enlighten: Adds electric vehicle mode indicator and tachometer
–Engage: Adds engine output power and battery output power
–Empower: Adds power to wheels, engine pull-up threshold and accessory power
These new LCDs screens will show a variety of different information gauges, like: instant fuel economy, economy over time, battery charge rates and also show conventional gauges such as engine speed and tank level. The special marketing gimmick “green gauge” shows an image of leaves that get greener if you achieve better fuel economy! Hilarious, lets see if it takes in 2009!
