Which Electric vehicle is right for you?
All-electric vehicles run on battery power alone. Zero fuel. Zero emissions on the road. So, they’re
better for the environment and, with government purchase incentives, reduced road tax and no penalties in
some low emission zones, they’re good for your wallet too. Go electric and reap the benefits with no more
trips to the pump. Fewer moving parts than traditional vehicles meaning lower maintenance costs, tax
reductions, emission zone benefits… the list of savings goes on.
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 larger capacity of the battery
makes them 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-only for longer
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.
As with Mild Hybrid (MHEV), Hybrid Vehicles (HEV) 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.
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.
The internal combustion engine is assisted by an electric motor. At low speed, or when stationary, the
engine can switch itself off and the 48V starter-generator seamlessly restarts when needed. Regenerative
braking during coasting and braking automatically recharges the separate 48V Li-ion battery. There is no
requirement to connect the battery to a power source.
Mild Hybrid powertrains can be a cost-effective way to join the electric revolution. They are also a
great option 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.
