Ford of Europe Makes Allergy Friendly Cars

The Auto Channel reports that the all-new Ford S-Max and Galaxy automobiles have passed stringent tests to receive seals of approval from the British Allergy Foundation and the German TUV ‘Allergy Tested Interior.’ Ford Focus and Focus C-Max have previously achieved similar certification.

In their new allergy friendly vehicles, Ford of Europe avoided using common allergenic materials such as latex, chrome, and nickel. During the certification process, extensive air quality tests examined the concentration of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), such as formaldehyde, phenols, pthalates, and solvents. The vehicles also come equipped with high-performance pollen filters.

    Any idea if and when these cars might be available in the U.S.?

    Unfortunately, it seems like U.S. auto makers are not very concerned about VOC emissions at this time. Please see our May 2006 achoo! Review newsletter for more information about VOC emissions and how to remove them from your car.”
