FORD COMMITS TO AN ELECTRIC FUTURE
Ford is investing $11 billion in Electrified Vehicles (2017-2022). In Amsterdam at our Go Further event in April, we announced the introduction of 15 electrified vehicles in Europe, including 8 that will launch in 2019.
Ford is committed to an electric future in Europe, with 13 hybrid vehicles making up the Ford Hybrid family by 2020. Whether you’re looking for a fun-to-drive city car, a practical hybrid car for the family or a capable hybrid van that doesn’t compromise on your business needs – you’ll find the right vehicle for you with the Ford Hybrid range.
Which Electric Vehicle Is Right For You?
If you’re considering making the switch to an electrified vehicle, then it’s important you understand the differences between them. See below more information on Mild Hybrid, Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid and All-Electric Vehicles.
- Mild Hybrid (MHEV) - All-New Kuga, New Puma
A small-Electric motor that helps improve efficiency. Mild Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power that work together – a conventional engine and a battery -driven electric motor. The electric motor does not power the car. It simply assists it.
- Hybrid (HEV) - New Mondeo, All-New Kuga
A seamless blend of conventional and electric power. Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power. They can automatically switch between conventional mode, pure electric mode (for short distances)or use both to power the vehicle as needed.
- Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) - All-New Kuga
Plug In. Charge up. Improve Efficiency. Plug-in Hybrids have the two sources of power like a Hybrid, but with a larger high voltage battery, enabling you to drive longer distances on All-Electric power.
- All-Electric (BEV) - Future Vehicle: Mustang-inspired All-Electric SUV
100% Electric. Just charge it up and go. All-Electric cars are powered by electricity alone. This means they have to be charged before you can drive.
