Ford To Introduce
SYNC To Taiwan In New Ford Focus
TAIPEI, Taiwan – Ford
Motor Company announced that it will bring its award-winning Ford SYNC®
system to Taiwan in the new Ford Focus, allowing customers to make phone
calls or play their favourite music using Mandarin voice commands.
The new Focus will be
the first Ford vehicle in Taiwan to feature the SYNC connectivity
platform, which will have voice recognition in two available languages –
English and Mandarin.
Using the hands-free
technology of SYNC, powered by Microsoft, customers can connect almost
any mobile phone or digital media player to their Focus via Bluetooth®
and USB connection respectively. Taiwanese drivers can use either
steering wheel-mounted controls or voice commands to manage SYNC’s
features, keeping their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
“We’re really excited
to be further expanding SYNC to more Ford customers across the region,
and even more excited that it will be available in Mandarin,” said Dave
Schoch, chairman and CEO of Ford Greater China.
“At Ford, we are
committed to bringing the best global technologies to our customers and
making them user-friendly. SYNC in Mandarin delivers value to the
customer through smart and convenient features that help keep them
connected to their digital lives in a safer, simpler and smarter way.”
