Ford Electric Vehicles

As one of the most innovative car manufacturers in the world, Ford continues to lead the market when it comes to electric vehicles.

If you’re thinking about making the switch to electric then there’s no better option – Ford UK plans to release as many as 16 fully electric vehicles by the end of 2022, including those in the commercial range.


Types of Ford electric vehicles – what’s the difference?

With so many electric vehicles coming onto the market, though, it can be hard to know exactly which one is most suited to your needs.

Here we break down the differences between the types of Ford electric vehicles, looking at things like distance, cost and charging time to help you find the best electric vehicle for you.

 

Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle

In the case of a mild hybrid, the conventional petrol engine is assisted by a battery driven electric motor. Although the electric battery cannot power the car itself, the assistance it provides reduces emissions.

 

Hybrid Electric Vehicle

A Hybrid EV utilises two sources of power – conventional and electric. The vehicle will automatically switch between the two depending on the speed of travel. When crawling through heavy city traffic, for example, a HEV will switch to electric power and will not use the conventional engine at all.

 

Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle

A Plug-In Hybrid is similar to a HEV in that it uses both conventional and electric power sources, but the battery is much larger and as a result the vehicle is able to travel further distances using solely electric power. They need to be plugged into the mains in order to recharge the electric battery.

 

All-Electric Vehicle

Drive purely by electricity, an All-Electric Vehicle needs recharging before you can go anywhere. Although ranges are increasing (some Ford vehicles will take you 310 miles on a single charge), you’ll need to plan your recharging points before setting off on a long journey as most existing electric cars have a range of around 130 miles.

 


The benefits of electric vehicle ownership

It’s cheaper 💷

Reduced emissions means lower road tax, and by shunning traditional fuels you’ll be cutting down on petrol costs. Financial incentives from the government are also available to encourage you to switch to electric.

Smoother experience 🛣️

Less engine noise and fewer moving parts results in a calmer driving experience.

Go the distance 🔋

The distance you can travel using electric vehicle batteries is increasing all the time, and with thousands of charging points across Europe there’s no need for any range anxiety with a brand new EV.


How does charging an electric vehicle work?

There are plenty of charging options with a Ford electric vehicle.
