Ford Hybrid Update!

QUANTUM Supplies Fuel Injector for Ford's New Environmentally Friendly Hybrid Model U

justauto article

QUANTUM Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc., (NASDAQ:QTWW), announced that it supplied its gaseous fuel injector for Ford's hybrid Model U, unveiled at the 2003 North American International Auto Show.

Ford's Model U links to the heritage of the Model T in terms of its ability to influence the world. It integrates renewable, recyclable materials in its construction and the Model U is very low in emissions. The Model U uses a hydrogen-powered, supercharged, intercooled 2.3-liter four-cylinder internal combustion engine mated to a hybrid electric transmission. In addition to super clean emissions, fuel economy is estimated at 45 miles per gallon.

"QUANTUM's injector is designed specifically to work with cleaner burning, dry gaseous fuels such as hydrogen, natural gas and propane," said Alan P. Niedzwiecki, president and CEO of QUANTUM. "We coupled proven electromagnetic technology with an innovative fuel metering design to yield an automotive-type fuel injector that provides precise fuel control and long life at a low cost. This fuel injector has been used in other internal combustion engine and hybrid applications."

QUANTUM designs, manufactures and supplies integrated fuel systems to original equipment manufacturers for use in alternative fuel vehicles and fuel cell applications. Our fuel systems enable cars, trucks and buses powered by internal combustion engines to operate on hydrogen, natural gas or propane. Our advanced enabling products for fuel cell systems are used in transportation and industrial vehicles, stationary and portable power generation, and hydrogen refueling products. QUANTUM's advanced fuel systems comprise the storage, monitoring, control, and injection of gaseous fuels to improve efficiency, enhance power output, and optimize emissions from fuel cell applications and internal combustion engines.
