eCall automatically dials the emergency services after a serious accident. It will communicate the vehicle location and enable emergency call takers to contact the vehicle and check if the driver is conscious or not. Like Ford Emergency Assist, this is triggered when the airbag is deployed or the fuel pump switch is deactivated. However eCall will work without the need to connect to a mobile phone to the car.
Furthermore, an eCall can be initiated manually by pressing the SOS button in the overhead console.
