2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid: Hybrid Tech in Non-Hybrids

December 27, 2010

This morning Ford announced that it's going to implement its Auto Start-Stop technology -- which is currently used in the Ford Fusion Hybrid as well as the Escape Hybrid -- in its non-hybrid cars, crossovers and SUVs sold in North America starting 2012.

With the auto-stall technology, when the car is at a stop, instead of idling, the gas engine is shut off. Apparently it won't change the way you drive but it improves the fuel economy by 4 percent.

What do you think: Good idea or bad?
