How Does Ford Measure Storage Spaces? Ping Pong Balls.

Posted Jul 19, 2012

Ford Motor Company often checks to see how much storage space that their competitors have. How do they check the measurements? Ping pong balls are used for measuring the capacity. Ford said that their new Ford Escape vehicle can hold around 56,778 ping-pong balls. Ford used to use a tape measurer to get the width and height, but engineers constantly got different numbers since the shape of the storage spaces are not easy to check. [SlashGear]
