As one of South Wales’ only Transit Centres, our staff are trained and up to date with the current Electric & Hybrid range and are also knowledgeable about the exciting new models due to launch over the next few months.
Ford is investing $11 billion in Electrified Vehicles between 2017-2022 and 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.
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. 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 journeys.
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.
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. 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.

The New Ford Tourneo Custom Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) is purpose-built to help transport passengers more efficiently than ever. Smart, hybrid technology helps keep emissions at a minimum, whilst intelligent design creates a refined and sophisticated interior for everyone to enjoy.
Fully charged, the New Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid’s can take you more than 35 miles (56 kilometres) using the electric motor alone. Ideal on those short trips in the city that usually result in low efficiency and more money spent on fuel. On longer journeys, the 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine helps to extend the van’s range to over 310 miles (500 kilometres) – working with regenerative braking to recharge the battery. And once sufficiently charged, you can switch back to electric only, helping you save money and reduce pollution.
