Ford H2RV and S2RV
Autoindex.org

To demonstrate its approach on vehicle safety Ford created two concept vehicles.

S2RV:Explorer
S2RV concept vehicle - for Safety Scientific Research Vehicle - demonstrates several future infotronics systems that promote driving safety. For example, the vehicle is fitted with TrafficView™, a Ford-patented technology that uses forward-facing cameras mounted in the side mirror housings to provide a better view around traffic immediately ahead via an instrument panel display.

H2RV:Focus wagon
Hydraulic Hybrid Research Vehicle. The advanced powertrain features a high-efficiency engine and a unique hydraulic hybrid propulsion system. The hydraulic hybrid system uses hydraulic motor/pumps and hydraulic accumulators to store energy, in the place of electric motor/generators and batteries used in electrical hybrid drive trains. Like other hybrid systems, energy saved via regenerative braking is used to help power the vehicle. This hydraulic power system could have cost and power advantages over electric hybrid systems. It was previously fitted to trucks but it is now been tested in a Focus shell.
