Ford gave us a tour of their Ford Focus flexible assembly line in Dearborn Michigan for the Focus Electric, C-Max Energi and C-Max Hybrid four-door machines. This is the first Assembly line able to switch gears to produce Hybrid and Electric cars. We walk through and see how they put in the Focus Electric's 23kWh dual lithium-ion batteries (which will get up to 100 MPGe), then switch over from one type of car to another.

Tracey Anderson (Launch Coordinator) talks about the install of the exhaust of a gas vehicle, and the underbody battery. The operator shows us how to load a battery to the rear end of the chassis.

Keith Bruin (Launch Trim Coordinator) talks about the D-brace install. You add it to the underbody to protect the battery and improve structural integrity.
