Continental has expanded its line of hybrid battery cooling fans to provide coverage for some hybrid model cars.
The line now has direct replacement fans for Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, KIA and Toyota hybrid models from 2003 to 2021.
“As the average age of hybrid vehicles on the road continues to climb, it is very important that the ‘air-cooled’ technology used to keep the battery and battery cells properly cooled continues to operate to OE specifications,” says Christina Bergstrom, senior product manager, Continental.
“That is why we have continued to expand our hybrid battery cooling fan coverage to popular model years of the Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Impala and Volt, Ford C-Max and Fusion, Honda Civic, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Toyota Camry and Prius and more. The battery packs on these vehicles can begin to weaken after only five years of service and the cooling fans may need to be replaced in the seventh and eighth year in order to maintain required cooling performance.”
Continental hybrid battery cooling fans restore the original battery cooling performance to the vehicle. The fans feature an OE design, including identical mounting locations and plug-and-play electrical connections.
