2017 Ford eco-friendly cars seattle washingtonYou can purchase the Ford Taurus and the Ford Explorer at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington, but their roots are at the Chicago Assembly Plant - a location that recently implemented efficiency efforts to cut down on water usage by 13 million gallons in 2016. Although last year's goal was impressive on its own, the best is yet to come. 

This year's water savings are expected to be even higher, thanks to the updated strategy that calls for an additional 30 percent reduction per vehicle in water use through 2020. Ford's updated strategy also includes a goal for zero drinkable water use in its manufacturing processes. The high standards speak to the Blue Oval's commitment to water leadership.


“It may come as a surprise just how much water automotive plants actually use,” Rhonda Turner, Ford's plant environmental control engineer, said. “Last month alone, we used 17 million gallons, so it’s really beneficial for us to find innovative ways to save water.”

Stay tuned to learn more about Ford's innovative plans for sustainability, and test-drive our selection of eco-friendly vehicles at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington today!
