Ford Synergy

Ford Synergy 2010 (1996)

The Synergy 2010 was Ford’s idea of in 1996. As such, it featured two power sources — a 1.0-litre direct-injection extremely lightweight materials (it weighed just one tonne (ton)), “air fences”, which dictated the car’s advanced, aerodynamic styling and computer-animated instruments. You could even call up the phone book by issuing a simple verbal command!

In 1996, Ford offered its thoughts on the family car of the year 2010. The federal government got the Big Three together under the banner of the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles, and part of Ford’s contribution was a lightweight and aerodynamic concept vehicle designed to get 80 mpg from its 1-liter diesel-electric hybrid powertrain.
