70-kilowatt Electric Traction Motor
Electric Generator Motor
Powertrain Operation
Vehicle System Controller (VSC)
70-kilowatt Electric Traction Motor
• Continuously monitors and controls the powertrain
components
• 70-kilowatt electric traction motor drives the vehicle
(by itself or with the gasoline engine)
• Automatically switches between operating modes as
needed, boosting performance and fuel economy while
minimizing emissions
– Can power the Escape Hybrid alone up to 25 mph
2.3L Atkinson Cycle 4-cylinder Gasoline Engine
– Using the electric traction motor during launch allows for
a smaller gasoline engine and significantly reduces fuel
consumption
• This is the internal combustion engine side of the Escape
Hybrid powertrain
– Used as a generator to recover the vehicle energy during
deceleration or braking to recharge the battery pack
• It is a 2.3L I-4 Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder engine designed
specifically for the Escape Hybrid to operate at peak
fuel efficiency
• Uses a “5-stroke” combustion process that is more efficient
than a conventional 4-stroke gasoline engine
• Slightly delays intake valve closing, significantly increasing
the gasoline engine’s energy conversion efficiency, producing
more mileage out of each gallon of gasoline
• Shuts off when it is not
needed to significantly reduce
both emissions and
fuel consumption(1)
• Quickly restarts, seamlessly
and virtually undetectable to
passengers, when the need
for additional power is
detected
• Uses regular unleaded
gasoline
Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable
Transmission (eCVT)
Electric Generator Motor
• Starts the gasoline engine quickly and automatically
when required
• Eliminates the need to “plug in” the vehicle
A CLOSER LOOK: Full Hybrid Design
There are two basic types of hybrids on the market: mild
hybrids and full hybrids such as Escape Hybrid. The easiest
way to tell what type you’re looking at is to look at the EPA
gasoline mileage. A full hybrid gets better mpg in the city
than on the highway. A full hybrid system operates in five
functional states:
– Idling
– Regenerative Braking
– Electric Launch (electric-only operation)
– Electric Assist (gasoline/electric operation)
– Gasoline Engine Only Operation
• In contrast to a mild hybrid, a full hybrid design provides
these benefits:
– Allows the electric traction motor to power the vehicle
in pure electric mode (mild hybrids only provide
electric assist, not full electric launch)
• Eliminates the noticeable upshifts and downshifts of
conventional transmissions, providing smoother operation
– Incorporates full regenerative braking (mild hybrids
only provide mild regenerative braking)
• Signals the VSC to shut down the gasoline engine at low
speeds and idle so the electric traction motor alone drives
the vehicle
– Provides significantly better fuel economy, particularly in
city driving because it drives entirely on electric power
in some conditions (mild hybrids like the Saturn VUE®
Green Line typically average only about 20 percent
improvement in fuel economy)
• Uses one planetary gear set for all the ratio changes,
unlike other Ford CVTs that use a steel link belt to provide
continuous ratio changes
Escape Hybrid
• Combines power from the engine and electric motor to drive
the wheels

Battery Safety
Escape Hybrid’s battery pack is completely sealed and
securely encased below the rear loadfloor. Consumers should
not be concerned about any problems with high voltage or
electrolyte contamination, even in an accident. (Consumers
should not tamper with the battery or the high voltage system.)
• Inertia switches — In an accident, two inertia switches will
shut off the battery pack and the fuel supply
• Battery disconnect — The battery pack is also disconnected
any time the key is turned off or the 12-volt (underhood)
battery is disconnected
• Repairs to the hybrid system should only be performed by a
Ford certified technician
Regenerative Braking System
• Powers the electric traction motor as needed (electric
traction motor provides high torque for 0–60 V-6-like
acceleration)
• Stores regenerative braking energy
• Does not need to be plugged in (recharged by the engine
and regenerative braking)
• Driver can monitor battery state via an instrument panel
battery state gauge
• Captures energy that would otherwise be lost as heat during
vehicle braking, generates electricity and recharges Escape
Hybrid’s battery pack
• Lets Escape Hybrid operate without the need to “plug in” to
recharge the battery
• Better fuel economy than a similar-size SUV because driving
on battery power uses no gasoline
• Encased in the rear of the vehicle at the loadfloor
(placement does not affect cargo space — has virtually
same cargo space as Escape)
• Battery pack weighs approximately 200 lbs.
Nickel-metal hydride batteries are environmentally responsible
and recyclable as well. This recyclability will become
increasingly important as larger numbers of hybrids enter the
market. When scrapping an Escape Hybrid, the dealer
responsible for disposal can follow the instructions on the main
label located on the top of the battery.

The Driving Experience
Understanding how Escape Hybrid works will make it
easier for you to explain what customers should expect
when they drive it.
• eCVT operation — There is no shifting like a traditional
vehicle — drivers may feel transitions between the operating
modes of the hybrid system, but no actual shifting occurs
Starting the Vehicle
• Stopping the vehicle — The engine may shut off as you
come to a stop — this is normal and helps conserve fuel. Do
not attempt to restart the vehicle
• The engine will start and run when you first turn the
ignition key to the start position
• The engine may shut off shortly after starting, depending
on temperature and battery state of charge — this is
normal and the vehicle should not be restarted
Driving the Vehicle
• Engine startup — The engine starts automatically as you
accelerate — sometimes immediately, at other times the
engine will delay starting up until reaching 25 mph
– Engine startup will occur if battery recharge is required
or acceleration exceeds electric motor capability
– If the battery is very cold or very hot, the engine may
engage sooner than under normal operating conditions —
this is normal. However, vehicle performance may
be reduced
Unique Operating Characteristics
• Escape Hybrid is equipped with a battery air conditioning
system in the rear of the vehicle. Occupants may hear a fan
noise from the rear of the vehicle or a slight tap/clunk as
the vent door operates. These noises are normal and occur
when the system heats or cools the battery to optimize
performance
• Engine speed in the Escape Hybrid is not directly tied to
vehicle speed. Under certain conditions, the engine speed
may appear to be much higher than a conventional vehicle.
This is normal and is caused by the engine speed being
controlled to maximize fuel economy
Other Performance Attributes
There’s more to performance than an engine and transmission.
The most efficient, most responsive powertrain in the world
isn’t much fun if the ride and handling are ineffective. Be sure
to point out the advanced suspension system and the Intelligent
4WD System available on Escape Hybrid.
Two Drivetrain Choices
• Front-wheel Drive (FWD)
• Intelligent Four-wheel Drive (4WD)
Four-wheel Independent Suspension
Intelligent 4WD System
• Automatically sends power to the wheels with the
most traction
• Always drives the front wheels and monitors vehicle and
driving surface conditions using signals such as individual
wheel speeds and throttle position
• Seamlessly sends power to the rear wheels as needed
to control wheel slip or to prevent it from occurring in the
first place
• Eliminates the need for a driver-operated switch
• Automatically monitors wheel speeds up to 5,000 times per
second to help avoid slippage
• Each wheel absorbs bumps independently for smooth ride
and handling
• Improves vehicle stability by reacting quickly to changes in
road conditions
• Nimble handling and maneuverability when combined with
Escape Hybrid’s exceptional powertrain

Maximizing Fuel Economy
Customer Expectations
Climate Controls
Some factors that may affect expectations of Hybrid’s
fuel economy:
• Operating the climate controls in the Max A/C, Defrost or
Defrost/Floor modes will run the gasoline engine
continuously, thereby reducing fuel economy
• These modes are distinguished in orange color on the
climate control dial
• The Message Center will display
“Reduced Economy” A/C Mode
to indicate that the engine is
running in these modes
• Selecting the A/C and A/C
Recirculation modes will operate
the A/C compressor only when
the gasoline engine is running, so the air may not feel as
cold when driving in electric-only mode
• Published fuel economy figures are EPA estimates
• Real-world fuel economy is dependent on several factors:
– Driving style (rate of acceleration) — slow, steady
acceleration/deceleration will provide better fuel
economy than quick starts and stops
– Amount of stop-and-go driving
– Operation in Max A/C, Defrost or Defrost/Floor modes will
run the gasoline engine continuously, reducing fuel economy
Escape Hybrid
Explorer
– Fuel economy is reduced by:
• Extra weight in the vehicle
• Decreasing vehicle aerodynamics (adding roof racks,
flags, etc.)
• Quick starts and stops, and excessive speeds
• To get the best fuel economy, customers should try to extend
the length of time the vehicle runs in electric mode
10
Additional Tips
Observing Gauges
• Properly maintain the vehicle through regularly scheduled
maintenance
• Keep tires properly inflated
• More information is included in the Owner’s Guide and in
the Quick Reference Guide in the glove compartment
Drivers can monitor how their driving style affects vehicle
performance by:
Emissions
• Maintaining the tachometer needle in the “green zone”
(improves fuel economy)
• Checking Message Center, which
displays instantaneous and
average fuel economy
• Checking Message Center
display for “Reduced Economy”
message when operating in Max
A/C, Defrost or Defrost/Floor
modes (gasoline engine
operating), indicating reduced
fuel economy (all vehicles)
• Monitoring Navigation System,
which features an energy flow
diagram. The less power being
drawn from the engine, the better
the fuel economy
Escape Hybrid has been designed to be as efficient and
environmentally responsible as possible. Plus, it has a high
percentage of recyclable content, which is another reason
Escape Hybrid is eco-responsible.
Escape Hybrid meets the following government emissions
standards:
• SULEV II (Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle II) standards
– Measure tailpipe emissions — 30 times more stringent
than minimum federal standards
• AT-PZEV (Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions
Vehicle) standards (required in California, Connecticut,
Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode
Island and Vermont) measure total emissions from the
vehicle and exceed the SULEV standard
– Tailpipe emissions must meet SULEV II standards
– Zero evaporative emissions from the vehicle’s fuel system
• By meeting these standards, Escape Hybrid qualifies as
a Clean Fuel Vehicle and qualifies for federal as well
as state and local tax incentives, which help offset the
acquisition cost. Customers should see their financial
advisor for details

single-stage front passenger
airbags and the Front Passenger
Sensing System (FPSS) for the front
passenger seat airbag. The Personal
Safety System features a number of
sensors in the vehicle that all work
to provide outstanding passenger
protection in certain frontal collisions.
Battery Pack Safety Features
• The 330-volt nickel-metal hydride battery pack is completely
sealed and encased and should not be a cause for alarm
for consumers, even in an accident (although consumers
should not tamper with the battery or high voltage system)
• In an accident, two inertia switches will shut off the battery
pack and the fuel. The battery pack is also disconnected
any time the key is turned Off or the 12-volt (underhood)
battery is disconnected
• Repairs to the hybrid system should only be performed by a
Ford certified technician (routine maintenance such as oil
changes or tire rotations are not affected by the hybrid system)
Additional Features
Illuminated Entry System — illuminates the interior when any
door is opened, for convenience and security.
Rear-door Child Safety Locks — prevent children from opening
a door from the inside.
Battery Saver — helps prevent battery power drainage by

consistent stopping power and excellent braking and steering
control, even under hard-braking conditions.
Perimeter Alarm — helps prevent vehicle theft through visual
and audible alarms.
Electronic Brake Force Distribution — registers slip between
the front and rear axle wheel speeds and controls the brake
pressure levels accordingly to optimize brake performance
under all driving conditions.
Seat Design — low-back seats with adjustable head restraints
in all seating positions to help provide whiplash protection.
Safety Belts and Head Restraints — 3-point safety belts and
head restraints are included at all seating positions, including
the rear center seat.
Belt-Minder® System — reminds the driver and front
passenger to buckle up.
SecuriLock® Passive Anti-theft System — designed to help
prevent the engine from being started unless a coded key
programmed to the vehicle is used.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) — monitors tire
pressure and alerts drivers to low air pressure conditions.
(1) NHTSA does not retest a vehicle for the new model year unless it has significant changes or additions in safety features or body structure. Because Escape
Hybrid hasn’t changed significantly in those areas for 2007, the previous crash test results are expected to carry over to the new model.

This page is about:
Maintenance Requirements
Warranty Coverage and Service Intervals
Emissions and Unique Component Warranties
Roadside Assistance
Key Features
Quality/Reliability/Durability
ESCAPE HYBRID
• Escape and Escape Hybrid are built on the same platform, so all the non-hybrid components
have a proven track record of quality and reliability
• Standard warranties on unique Hybrid components
Maintenance Requirements
Warranty Coverage and Service Intervals
Any new technology will cause customers to ask about
reliability and maintenance costs. Escape Hybrid was
designed, engineered and produced to keep operating costs
exceptionally low.
Escape Hybrid, like conventional Escape, comes with Ford’s
Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty as well as the
complimentary Ford Roadside Assistance Program. And, like
Escape, these warranty programs are in effect for 3 years or
36,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Some points to express to your customers:
• The components shared by Escape Hybrid and conventional
Escape have the same maintenance costs. Oil and filter
changes, brake pads, wiper blades or servicing the air
conditioning will cost the same for both models
• Escape Hybrid’s regenerative braking system increases brake
pad life while it recharges the battery pack because the
friction brakes are relieved of part of the burden of slowing
the vehicle, so there is less wear and tear on the brake pads(1)
• Escape Hybrid maintenance intervals are projected to be
longer than conventional Escape’s.(1) For example, because
Escape Hybrid’s gasoline engine has less idle time, its
recommended oil/filter change interval is every 12 months
or 10,000 miles — this reduces the cost of ownership and
aids the environment (less waste oil will be generated)
• The rear battery air conditioning filter should be inspected
every 10,000 miles and replaced every 20,000 miles(1)
• While repairs to the hybrid system should only be
performed by a Ford certified technician, routine
maintenance such as oil changes or tire rotations do not
affect the hybrid system
• Escape Hybrid’s cost-effective operation can be traced to a
distinct characteristic of its driving cycle: The engine is off at
stops and at other times when it is not needed. This distinct
operational mode contributes to a reduced rate of engine
oil degradation(1)
• Since the eCVT has very few moving parts, reliability is
expected to be very high
• Emissions
– Under the Federal Emissions Defect and Performance
Warranties, Ford provides coverage for a specified list of
parts for 3 years or 36,000 miles (whichever occurs first).
Ford also provides coverage, including labor and
diagnosis, for 8 years or 80,000 miles for the catalytic
converter, electronic emissions control unit and onboard
emissions diagnostic device
– Under the California Emissions Defect and Performance
Warranties, Ford provides coverage for a specified list
of parts for 15 years or 150,000 miles (whichever
occurs first). The high-voltage battery is covered for
10 years or 150,000 miles (whichever occurs first).
This warranty is applicable if the vehicle is certified
for sale in California and registered in California,
Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey,
New York, Rhode Island or Vermont
• Under the Unique Component Warranty, Ford provides
coverage for 8 years or 100,000 miles (whichever occurs
first) for the high-voltage battery, electronically controlled
continuously variable transmission and the DC/DC converter
Roadside Assistance
The Roadside Assistance program is available during the
3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty period.
It offers a number of features that include:
• Toll-free number operational 24 hours a day, every day —
1-800-241-FORD
Customers who call the toll-free number can request services to
change a flat tire, jump-start a battery, unlock the vehicle,
deliver fuel or tow the vehicle to the nearest Ford Motor
Company dealership or the selling dealership if within 35 miles.
Escape Hybrid
• Compared to the “duty cycle” of a conventional vehicle,
Escape Hybrid’s duty cycle is less severe because the
engine spends almost no time idling at stops;(1) sustained
idling is particularly destructive to the detergent and
anti-corrosive properties of engine oils
Emissions and Unique Component Warranties
(1) Driving habits may vary — maintenance intervals based on normal driving conditions.
