The latest-generation HEV is equipped with Ford's state-of-the-art, aluminum DIATA engine.
Applying an integrated systems approach to the development of the HEV powertrain allowed us to use advanced technology, including the DIATA, that provides improved fuel economy and reduced emissions," Johnson said.
Ford recently unveiled the P2000 DIATA prototype, a revolutionary new car that can carry a family of five about 63 miles on one gallon of fuel.
The P2000's four-cylinder DIATA engine is an advanced 1.
