All-Electric Vehicles

Ford Electric

Ford plans to release 16 fully electric vehicles within a global portfolio of 40 electrified vehicles by 2022. Our all-new fully-electric performance utility vehicle arrives in 2020 with a targeted range of approximately 300 miles/480km.

Which Electric Vehicle
Ford Hybrid

Mild Hybrid efficiency

It is assisted by an electric motor. At low speeds, or when stationary, the internal combustion engine can switch itself off and the 48V starter-generator seamlessly restarts it when needed. The separate 48V Li-Ion battery is automatically recharged by regenerative braking during coasting and braking. There is no requirement to connect the battery to a power source.

Fuel Efficiency

Mild Hybrid powertrains can be a cost-effective way to join the electric revolution. They are best suited for people who do a lot of shorter journeys, especially around town and at lower average speeds. Ford will be offering both Petrol and Diesel Mild Hybrid powertrains. EcoBoost Hybrid will be available on Fiesta, Focus and All-New Kuga with our 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine. Using the latest Euro 6 diesel technology, EcoBlue Hybrid will be offered on All-New Kuga, Transit Custom and Transit.

Fuel Efficiency

Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV)

Electric's familiar face

These days, Hybrid Vehicles (HEV) are an increasingly common sight on the road. This is especially true in cities and urban areas, where their fuel efficiency in a typical city can be an advantage.

As with Mild Hybrid (MHEV), these vehicles have an internal combustion engine, but they also have a larger battery and more powerful motor. This provides more assistance to the engine and enables the vehicle to drive parts of short journeys at low speeds using the electric motor alone. Thanks to the conventional engine, this can help improve driving range. This is because the vehicle is capable of using both battery and the internal combustion engine.

Practical performance

As of October 2018 government subsidies are now available only to cars with CO2 emissions of less than 50g/km and a zero-emissions range of over 70 miles, with £3,500 available on purchase per eligible Car.

The battery in a Hybrid Vehicle is recharged by a combination of regenerative braking and by the engine, not from plugging into a mains power source. The Hybrid transmission is fully automatic and does not come with a manual gearbox.

Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEV)

Intelligent Hybrid System

Intelligent Hybrid System

Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEV) have all the functionality of full Hybrid technology, with the added advantage that they can be charged from an external electricity supply. The capacity of the battery makes the Ford Transit Custom PHEV capable of zero-emissions while driving for ranges of up to 30 miles (50 kilometres)*, with the ability to switch to Hybrid mode to conserve battery life and to petrol or diesel for longer journeys.

Charging the battery

You can keep your PHEV vehicle charged in a variety of ways, from plugging into the mains, to advanced self-charging technology. Watch this animation for an overview about the most common ways you can make sure your PHEV is charged up and ready to go when you are.

All-Electric Technology Overview

Power of Zero

The power of zero

All-Electric vehicles run exclusively on battery power and can deliver zero emissions while driving. Typically new All-Electric vehicles can now deliver a range of more than 300 miles (while older models typically have a range of 100 – 150 miles), so they can offer a radically different and exciting ownership experience.

Battery Charging

Wallbox chargers can be installed at your home and can charge the battery overnight. There is also the option to use a household socket to charge a compatible car too but this may take longer than a wallbox charger. On the road, increasing numbers of more powerful, fast charging stations are being installed in the UK.

Moving forward, the charging stations planned in Ford’s joint venture IONITY network will be designed to charge compatible Ford vehicles to 80% in about 20 minutes.
