2013 Ford Fusion, First Global Vehicle To Use Recycled Materials

2013 Ford Fusion, First Global Vehicle To Use Recycled Materials
WESTLAND, Mich.- Over the past year we've been reporting on Ford Motor Company's efforts to become more sustainable and eco friendly, and with recent announcements, the automaker's commitment is stronger than ever. Ford is the first automaker to use recycled materials in vehicles sold around the world! Specifically, the 2013 Ford Fusion is the first global vehicle to use recycled materials!

As part of the brand's commitment to use recycled materials whenever possible, Ford has increased the use of recycled yarns by 66% since 2007. Using 41 fabrics across 15 vehicle lines globally, Ford's use of sustainable fabrics continues to grow as the automaker continues to add global vehicle programs.

Ford Motor Company's commitment to doing business in an eco-conscious way is seen in the global launch of the redesigned Fusion. The first global vehicle to use recycled materials, the 2013 Ford Fusion features seat fabric made from materials including recycled plastic water bottles and post-industrial waste. Think about it this way: In 2009, Americans generated 30 million tons of plastic waste and recycled only 7% of it. But, the amount of plastic in about 40 clear plastic bottles is woven into the fabric of the Ford Fusion. Over the course of a production year, the effect could be dramatic! Not to mention, the fabric in the Fusion Hybrid is 100% recycled!

All of this on top of the countless positive reviews and ratings, plus the unparalleled stylish new design, makes the 2013 Ford Fusion a top pick! Want to own your very own Fusion?
