Ford says the new heat pump in its Fusion SE model is a significant improvement over the one it used in the 2017 Fusion.
The new pump delivers 10 times more horsepower and has a lower center of gravity.
It also has a larger fuel tank that can hold 3.3 gallons, according to Ford.
It’s also much more fuel efficient, Ford said.
Ford says it plans to roll out the new Fusion SE at dealerships this summer, but it expects the first vehicles to be on the road later this year.
The company says the Fusion SE can handle more than 3,000 miles on a single charge, and the new model can get up to 2,800 miles on the same charge.
The Fusion SE, which is made by GM, was designed for long-distance use.
The automaker says the redesigned model will be available in the U.S. later this summer.
