Evaporation of car cabin windows is one of the common problems that we usually see on cold days of the year or entering the cabin after sports activities. This can lead to wasted time, wasted fuel and increased air pollution.
Ford has equipped the recent generation Koga with an interesting system to deal with the problem of evaporation. This system is called Windscreen Weather Station, and thanks to it, the glass vapor is easily removed.
Ford’s innovative system detects factors such as cabin humidity and windshield temperature changes, automatically turns on the air conditioning system if needed, and does not allow steam to evaporate by adjusting the airflow!
The module, designed and manufactured by Ford for evaporating, measures 5 by 3 centimeters and is mounted on the windshield near the rear view mirror. The sensors of this module adjust the temperature, temperature and power of the air conditioning system by continuous monitoring and prevent the loss of fuel consumption or unnecessary air pollution by preventing the application of excessive pressure to the compressor.
An official statement issued by Ford said:
“Waiting for the windshield to clear after exercise is a relatively annoying part of everyday life, and driving with poor front vision can be dangerous. “This technology welcomes the problem and solves it without the driver’s knowledge.”
Interestingly, the Windscreen Weather Station system can also be activated before the driver enters the cabin using the FordPass remote application. The system is integrated with proprietary QuickClear technology and, in addition to evaporating, also has the ability to defrost glass in a matter of seconds.
It is worth mentioning that the Ford Koga compact crossover is sold in Europe with three electric powertrains, which are rechargeable hybrid, hybrid and soft hybrid. This car is produced in single and double differential versions.
