Continental has expanded its line of Hybrid Battery Cooling Fans to provide coverage for some of the most popular hybrid models on the road today.
The growing line now delivers direct replacement fans for Ford, GM, 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,” notes Christina Bergstrom, Continental Senior Product Manager. “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 7th and 8th year in order to maintain required cooling performance.”
Restoring original performance
Designed as an exact replacement for the original fan, Continental hybrid battery cooling fans restore the original battery cooling performance to the vehicle. Ensuring that the fan is properly functioning is critical to maintaining the health of the battery and the vehicle’s overall fuel economy. The fans feature an OE design, including identical mounting locations and plug-and-play electrical connections, that helps ensure an easy installation.
