Aug. 5, 2020—Hyundai, KIA, Toyota, Ford, General Motors, and Honda vehicles were all suffering from the same issue: an overheating hybrid battery. Continental said in a press release that it has managed to do what only dealers have done thus far—create a cooling fan system specifically for the battery. 

Christina Bergstrom, Continental senior product manager says, "Over 95 percent of hybrid batteries use air cooled technology to keep the battery and its cells properly cooled, but these battery packs begin to weaken after only five years of service."

Continental Hybrid Battery Cooling Fans are designed to restore the original battery cooling performance to the vehicle. Models ranging from 2003 to 2017 now have access to this technology thanks to Continental, according to the press release.
