A page for a mysterious Ford E-150 has been discovered on NHTSA’s website, prompting many to wonder what it’s referring to. Unfortunately, as is so often the case with mysteries, the answer is disappointingly reasonable.

The excitement started because Ford, like every other major automaker, has been showing an affinity for adding the letter E to its recent electric vehicle names.

With a new electric F-150 on its way soon, there is some merit to the question of whether or not a new name will distinguish it from the internal combustion F-150. Sadly, this won’t be it.

Although the Mach-E and E-Transit both add the letter to familiar names, Ford isn’t simply replacing the F with an E in the case of the electric F-150.

The first evidence of this is that the four “Manufacturer Communications” on NHTSA’s website all refer to the E-Series chassis. Although you won’t be able to find an “E-150” for sale through Ford’s fleet site, in this case, Ford assures us the name does refer to a van.

Ford spokesperson, Mike Levine, took to Twitter to debunk the rumor earlier today, but we reached out to Ford anyway to get a little more clarity. Another spokesperson confirmed that the names refer to E-Series vans that are available in cutaway/chassis cab configurations.

It seems that the confusion stems from the public-facing nomenclature for the E-Series vans. In 2014, Ford stopped selling the “E-150” and replaced it with the Transit. Ford says, though, that the NHTSA site is just out of date. Indeed, Ford fleet vehicles are already being sold as 2022s (for reasons of residual value) something that the government site doesn’t reflect either.

Simply put, Ford says the page refers to a van. Unfortunately, that means we still have to wait for the manufacturer to tell what it’s calling the electric F-150 in their own time.

2021 E-150 you say? That sounds like a great name for a … van. #ESeries #Econoline #BuiltFordTough pic.twitter.com/p1GaZghpzO

Earlier this year Cadillac revealed a concept for a quadcopter drone-like flying car at CES. But it’s not the only one who is exploring flying cars, as well as the necessary infrastructure.

Hyundai and the UK government are actually partnering with Urban Air Port to launch the world’s first “hub for future electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft.”

According to Hyundai’s press release, the hub, which is being called “Air-One,” will launch later this year. It sounds like that will mean some demonstration runs will be run from the hub (which is in Coventry) to show how much less traffic there would be if we were all flying.

“Cars need roads. Trains need rails. Planes need airports. eVTOLs will need Urban Air Ports,” said Ricky Sandhu, Urban Air Port CEO, in a statement. “Over a hundred years ago, the world’s first commercial flight took off, creating the modern connected world.”

And that’s actually an interesting parallel. At the dawn of aviation, the question of how people would fly was actually surprisingly open and few people would have bet on jumbo jets. Rigid airships and floatplanes seemed to make a lot more sense at the time and it was a question that remained open until after World War II riddled countries with landing strips.

The Air One will be 60 percent smaller than a traditional airport, which makes sense since it doesn’t really need long landing strips. Urban Air Port claims that it can be run completely off-grid, which, I suppose, is theoretically true, probably by using solar panels.

Hyundai’s Urban Air Mobility division chose Urban Air Port as its partner because even eVTOLs need somewhere to live. The big news, though, is that the project has been chosen as the winner of the UK’s Future Flight Challenge.

“Air-One is a unique project that is set to help lead the way in developing a robust, accessible and intermodal infrastructure network for future mobility,” said Pamela Cohn, CEO of Urban Hyundai’s Air Mobility division. “We are excited to be part of this partnership in the UK, and look forward to working together to create community impact and opportunity through safe, affordable, and human-centered mobility solutions.”

This particular prize will mean a £1.2 million grant from UK Research and Innovation’s Future Flight Challenge. Hyundai actually plans to develop 200 sites over the next five years.

“Urban Air Port has the potential to revolutionize cities across the world, making them more connected, cleaner and accelerating our green economic recovery,” said Gary Cutts, UK Research and Innovation Future Flight Challenge Director. “This project epitomizes the purpose of the Future Flight Challenge fund – it is innovation at its finest – and will help to position the UK at the vanguard of electric urban air mobility.”

一年一度的農曆春節假期即將到來,相信應該有許多車主都有著開車出遠門、探親旅遊…等眾多規劃,建議所有車主都應該提早在假期之前前往各專業服務廠進行全面性的車況檢查與保養。而在旅遊或返鄉等長途行駛前,也最好為愛車確認胎壓及5油3水(汽油、機油、煞車油、變速箱油、動力方向機油、引擎冷卻水、電瓶水及雨刷水)。

另外,Ford也特別在農曆春節前夕提出「冬季用車5大要點」建議,讓用車人無論是春節返鄉或是國旅尋雪,都能輕鬆掌握車況,安心出遊。

一、車載電瓶

無論是採用什麼動力系統的車款,在低溫天氣中行駛都會讓車載電力系統在運作上比一般日常使用負載更大。一般車用的12V電瓶可供給電力並維繫車輛主要的電氣系統正常運作,車主需留意電瓶的狀況,建議在長途旅行之前,可使用My Ford Service App預約至Ford專業服務廠針對電池的蓄電與放電狀況進行檢測,若是12V的電瓶已經使用兩年以上,在使用效能上可能會有衰退的情況,需考慮更換電瓶。

 

二、車燈照明系統

冬季由於日照時間縮短,加上氣候變遷快速多端,駕駛人能明顯感受到行車環境的能見度降低。因此,汽車照明對於保持安全至關重要,在長途旅行之前建議檢查所有燈具是否能正常照明並適度清潔,包含檢查警示燈和牌照燈等細項。而頭燈照明的角度也應依照乘客的乘載量或是行李量的多寡來調整,以確保行車安全。像是The All-New Ford Kuga所搭載的LED頭燈組便兼具了照明效果與安全性。依照車型不同,從最基本的雙層矩陣式LED附光感應自動啓閉,到進階ST-Line車型帶有AFS頭燈主動式轉向照明輔助、Glare Free智慧防眩光等技術的單體投射型LED,不僅外觀風格獨具,先進照明科技也能提供最佳的投射效果。

 

三、輪胎檢測

無論長途短途,輪胎狀況是行車安全的基本檢查項目之一,特別是春節與家人一同遠行,行前檢查磨耗狀況以及適當的胎壓,還關係著乘客在旅途中的舒適度。依據台灣道路交通安全規則的規定,胎溝深度至少須維持在1.6 mm。若是有意到山上賞雪,建議在上山前提早於平地商家租用合適輪胎尺寸的雪鏈,一來是可以用合理的市場行情價租用,二來是,在進入覆雪地面前,就可以知道如何正確安裝雪鏈,確保行車安全。

雪鏈依照功能分為一般型、V型與網狀型,最常見的網狀型安裝方法如下:(安裝方法僅提供參考,詳細安裝步驟依照雪鏈種類與胎圈尺寸有所不同,請洽專業雪鏈租賃商。)

 

--雪鏈應安裝在驅動輪,若是四輪驅動車款,則是建議四輪都裝設。

--在安裝前,先將車輪開至木塊或石塊上墊高,讓快扣鋼索穿過車輪內側並扣上。

--將網狀鏈條沿著胎面服貼整理好,並固定用鏈條拉緊,並確實勾上固定扣。

--最後,以彈力繩以對角線的方式來固定較鬆的鏈條,即可完成雪鏈安裝,拆除則是以反向操作即可。

四、車窗與前擋玻璃能見度確認

在天冷遇雨易起霧,或是山上雪景中,皆會遭遇視線降低的情況,良好的能見度更為重要。使用一些簡單的步驟來保持前擋玻璃與窗戶的清潔,就有助於讓視野更清楚。首先,玻璃要有良好的除霧效果,要常保車窗內外的清潔。同時,要檢查雨刷是否有需要更換,並且定期將擋風玻璃雨刷水加滿。

 

五、旅行備品

計畫一個安全愉快的冬季旅程,甚至是專程賞雪,除了上述行前檢查之外,準備額外的備品再出發會是相當明智的決定。像是檢查備胎、手提式充氣設備、千斤頂、車輪扳手、拖車勾等,是預防輪胎遇到意外狀況的安心保證。另外,保暖衣物也是冬遊或賞雪行程中不可或缺的項目,包含:毯子、外套、帽子、手套和靴子,以及貼心為乘客準備瓶裝水、餅乾或巧克力等零食,在長途塞車或等待降雪時可以果腹。
