2006 Ford Reflex Concept

DETROIT, Jan. 8, 2006 – The Ford Reflex proves that small cars can be bold, American and innovative. The sporty concept is expected to be an auto show star, reflecting a growing and important “small is big” trend in America.

Reflex is a technological showcase with its advanced diesel-electric hybrid engine – delivering up to 65 miles per gallon – solar panels, flexible interior made from synthetic and regenerated materials, and such advanced safety features as inflatable safety belts in the rear.

The concept underscores Ford’s intent to offer bold, American designs regardless of vehicle size.

”From consumer electronics to urban dwellings, small is becoming big in America”,” says Peter Horbury, executive director, North American Design. ”The bold and innovative design of Reflex stretches the traditional boundaries of a subcompact car. Reflex delivers the fuel economy and flexibility that Americans have come to expect.”
