Ford and Samsung are in an alliance where researching of lithium ion battery technology is concerned. This new partnership will see the introduction of lightweight vehicle batteries besides the augmentation of brake regenerative system on non hybrid and non electric vehicles.

It will see the combination of lithium ion batteries along with a 12 V lead acid battery and is the culmination of 10 long years of partnership and research.

As on date, Ford offers regenerative braking in all its hybrid cars to the extent of 90% of electric power which would in normal circumstances be lost when braking to the battery. All hybrid vehicles from Ford comes with a new technology called Auto Stop-Start which turns off the engine when it stops. This then redirects power flow from the engine to an advanced battery which automatically switches the engine back on once brake pedal is released.

Ford and Samsung will continue with their alliance to bring in even more advanced lithium ion batteries which could one day see the end of lead acid batteries.

Apart from this, Ford also introduced a new concept vehicle in the form of a new Ford Lightweight Concept vehicle that cuts weight of a 2013 Ford Fusion midsized sedan to that of a Fiesta compact thus resulting in a 25% weight loss. This technology uses some techniques and advanced mix of materials that is seen on the latest smartphones.
