Ford Hybrid & Electric

The world around us is changing. In response, Ford are electrifying their vehicle range launching 14 new hybrid and electric vehicles in the UK by the end of 2020. There's no need to wait that long however if you want to enjoy the latest hybrid and electric driving experience. There are currently four types of electric engines on the market: Mild Hybrid (MHEV), Hybrid (FHEV), Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV), and All Electric (BEV). Each electric engine covers different distances on pure electric; some are ideal for running errands, while others are suited to a longer trips. By understanding the difference between each engine you’ll be able to decide what is best for you.

​Which Electric Vehicle Is Right For You?

Mild Hybrid Image
  • 100% Self Charging. No need to plug in
  • Range - No electric only driving.  Fuel-efficient driving.
  • A more responsive drive with improved fuel economy.

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.

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 a Petrol Mild Hybrid powertrains on Fiesta, Focus, Puma and Kuga with our 1.0-litre EcoBoost or 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine.

  • 100% Self Charging.  No need to plug in
  • Zero-emissions at low speeds
  • Low emissions, improved fuel economy, no charging ports.

These days, Hybrid Vehicles (FHEV) 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.

Plug-In Hybrid Image
  • Plug-in charge at home or on the go.
  • Range up to 28-41 miles (WLTP test results) zero-emissions driving.
  • Zero emissions capable with petrol engine range.

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 34 miles, with the ability to switch to Hybrid mode to conserve battery life and to petrol or diesel-only for longer journeys.

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.

  • 100% Battery powered.
  • Up to 293-372 miles (WLTP test results) on a full charge.
  • Future proof, cheaper to run, 100% zero-emissions driving

As the name suggests, it runs exclusively on battery power, delivering zero emissions while driving. This fully electric powered vehicle can drive up to 300 miles before needing to be recharged; that’s 10x further than the Plug-in Hybrid. Ionity public charging stations will only take 45 minute to charge the battery to 80%, or there’s the option to install a Wallbox charging station at home for easy overnight charging.
