    Segment Transcript

    I'm Laura Reynolds with CarProUSA. Technical Leader, Ford Research and Advanced Engineering Clay Maranville says Ford’s Refresh95 air filter removes particles 30 times smaller than a human hair. Maranville: "You know we've done some other testing with some allergens, as well, like with the pollens, we've looked at some other kinds of types of dust that people can get allergic to and we can see up to you know 99%, of the big pollens, we can even do better than that. But this is an amazing filter that I think is really going to help people, maybe especially those that have allergies be able to breathe a little easier. Right now, we're planning on coming in in the 3rd quarter and we have a long game plan on this, that by the end of next year, we're going to have this in most of our vehicles, that's the direction we're going and then beyond that we're looking at making sure that we engineer our vehicle's climate systems to be able to always accept these kinds of filters."
