The Lincoln Aviator a plug in hybrid that has a smartphone for a key

Lincoln debuted its new mid-sized Aviator SUV at the New York International Auto Show this week, and it features a bit more high-tech bells-and-whistles than Ford’s luxury brand is typically known for. It can turned on and driven using a virtual key on a smartphone. It will feature Ford’s new driver-assist system with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection. And most notably, the Aviator will be Lincoln’s first plug-in hybrid vehicle.Image result for lincoln aviator hybrid suvThe decision to electrify the Lincoln Aviator is part of Ford’s $11 billion investment in zero emission vehicles. Earlier this year, the Blue Oval announced plans to roll out 40 hybrid and fully electric cars within five years, the first of which would arrive in 2020. Separately, Lincoln plans to introduce hybrid versions of all its US models by 2022.Image result for lincoln aviator hybrid suvThere’s still a lot we don’t know about the Aviator because Lincoln is keeping a lot of the specs under wraps until the production version of the car is unveiled at the auto show. But at a pre-show preview in Manhattan’s West Village earlier this week, Lincoln executives suggested the Aviator could eventually make its way onto the automaker’s soon-to-be-launched monthly subscription service.
