Ford Publicizes Its EV Patents, All In The Name Of Development.. Now publicly available? – Ford’s new patents for its electric vehicles. It has done that to make it known to competing automakers that their electric vehicle technology is being constantly and consistently advancing itself. The director of the Ford Electrification Programs, Kevin Layden, stated that the goal for the company is innovation. He continues by saying that as a company, you need to keep creating, developing and making progress in the field that you are in. Customers are looking for quality and ambition within their company of choice. Layden says that “By sharing our research with other companies, we will accelerate the growth of electrified vehicle technology and deliver even better products to customers.” It is also apparent that Toyota and Tesla have opened up to competitors in their field recently too. In the previous year, it is seen that Ford filed over 400 patents which related to electric vehicles. Ford holds over 650 patents and over a thousand pending applications, all related to EV technology.
