Electric & Hybrid Options Explained

Ford Electric

All Electric

All-electric vehicles run on battery power alone, resulting in zero fuel consumption and zero emissions on the road. Not only are they better for the environment, but with government purchase incentives, reduced road tax, and no penalties in some low emission zones, they’re also beneficial for your wallet. Say goodbye to trips to the pump and hello to fewer moving parts than traditional vehicles, leading to lower maintenance costs. With tax reductions, emission zone benefits, and a multitude of other savings, the advantages of electric vehicles are extensive.

Ford Plug-In Hybrid

Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV)

Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEVs) offer all the functionality of full Hybrid technology, with the added advantage that they can be charged from an external electricity supply. The larger battery capacity enables them to operate with zero emissions while driving for ranges of up to 30 miles (50 kilometers). They also feature Hybrid mode to conserve battery life and can switch to petrol or diesel-only for longer journeys.

Ford Hybrid

Hybrid (HEV)

Similar to Mild Hybrid (MHEV) vehicles, these vehicles feature an internal combustion engine, but they also incorporate a larger battery and a more powerful motor. This configuration provides greater assistance to the engine and allows the vehicle to drive certain segments of short journeys at low speeds using the electric motor alone. Thanks to the presence of the conventional engine, this hybrid system enhances the driving range by utilizing both the battery and the internal combustion engine.

Ford Mild Hybrid

Mild Hybrid (MHEV)

The internal combustion engine is assisted by an electric motor. When the vehicle operates at low speeds or is stationary, the engine can automatically switch off, and the 48V starter-generator seamlessly restarts it when needed. Additionally, the separate 48V Li-ion battery is automatically recharged through regenerative braking during coasting and braking. Notably, there is no need to connect the battery to an external power source.

Plug-In Charging Options

Home Charging

Simply connect your vehicle to a standard domestic socket and let it charge. While this method isn’t the fastest due to the limited power availability from household sockets, it doesn’t require additional hardware, making it a cost-effective and highly accessible way to recharge your plug-in vehicle.

If you’re looking to speed up the charging process for your all-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle at home, we can assist you in arranging the installation of a higher-power wallbox through one of our expert partners. Ford’s Wallboxes offer faster charging times compared to conventional plug sockets, ensuring your vehicle is ready to hit the road whenever you need it.

Public and Destination Charging 

Across our range of all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, we provide public charging cables either as standard equipment or as an accessory, depending on the model that suits your needs. This empowers you to charge your Ford vehicle at any of the 100,000+ (and increasing!) charge points across Europe, ensuring comprehensive coverage.

Ford is also a founding member of one of Europe’s fastest-growing charging networks: IONITY. As part of this network, All-Electric Ford drivers can access market-leading charging speeds at a discounted price.

Charging Made Easy 

With the FordPass App on your phone, you’ll never have to worry about whether your electric vehicle is charged or not. Simply open the FordPass app to check the state of your electric battery and see if it needs charging before your next journey.

We’re also partnering with NewMotion, who are building Europe’s largest public charging network. Through this partnership, you can use your smartphone to locate the nearest public charging points, plan your route, and determine the cost of fully charging your plug-in hybrid or electric vehicle. Additionally, on your All-Electric Ford vehicle, you can identify public charge points along your scheduled journey, allowing you to charge your electric vehicle on-the-go without deviating from your planned route.
