The Ford Kuga Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) combines a battery powered electric motor with its 2.5-litre Duratec petrol engine – delivering a combined power output of 225 PS, together with outstanding fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures of just 32g CO2/km (WLTP). For added peace of mind, the hybrid battery comes with an 8-year or 100,000 miles warranty (whichever comes first).

A choice of electric vehicle (EV) modes means you can decide whether to run your Kuga PHEV on power from the electric motor, petrol engine or via a combination of both. When using the mode ‘EV Now’ the plug-in hybrid can travel up to 35 miles on electric power only. So, you can make easy work of any terrain, while keeping your city driving clean, quiet and refined.


The Ford Kuga Full Hybrid combines a highly efficient 2.5-litre Duratec engine with a battery-powered electric motor. The Kuga Full Hybrid recaptures energy usually lost while decelerating. This is similar to the EcoBlue Mild Hybrid, but the larger battery can store more power to further improve fuel economy and even drive short distances on electric power alone. Like the Plug-In Hybrid, this has a petrol automatic transmission, which is both smooth to drive and incredibly capable, with a towing capacity of 1,600 kg.

The Kuga’s EcoBlue Mild Hybrid incorporates a small electric motor with a 48-volt battery to improve engine efficiency. The electric motor assists the engine, helping to reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions compared to non-hybrid petrol and diesel options. The 48-volt battery charges while you drive, so there's no need for an external power source. The EcoBlue Mild Hybrid has a manual transmission if you prefer this, and packs 150 PS of power, enabling towing of 1,900 kg.


There’s plenty of choice in the EcoBlue line-up. Ford Kuga’s 1.5 and 2.0 litre EcoBlue diesel engines, feature the latest technology to improve power, torque and fuel economy, whilst reducing emissions. At 120 PS for the 1.5 litre and 190 PS for the 2.0, the Kuga diesel engines deliver impressive power output enabling towing of up to 2.1 tonnes. Depending on which you choose, you’ll also have the option of a manual or advanced automatic transmission, and intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD).

The 1.5-litre Kuga EcoBoost petrol engine uses a combination of direct fuel injection and turbocharging, along with cylinder deactivation technology, to deliver outstanding power with remarkable efficiency. The Kuga EcoBoost petrol is available in a choice of 150 PS options, you’ll enjoy all the uncompromised performance you’d expect from a conventional 1.5-litre engine, but with better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.
