What is the Climate Control System Like in the Ford C-Max?

Since the Ford C-Max runs primarily off the lithium-ion battery while driving around Columbus, KS, the climate control system is isolated to the SYNC 3 panel. Saving juice while operating at low speeds is a priority with a hybrid vehicle and many adjustments to the climate control system exist because of the power limitations.

Over the years since the C-Max was first introduced, Ford engineers have looked for methods to reduce battery energy drain. One of the ways to do that is to let the computer handle climate control with some input from the driver or passenger. The SYNC screen shows a climate control area where the desired temperature is input by the operator — the computer senses who needs the climate adjustment and works from there.

At Mike Carpino Ford Inc., we demonstrate how to program your SYNC 3 program to respond to your climate control needs.
