WHAT IS A PLUG-IN HYBRID?

As with all hybrids, a PHEV combines a conventional engine with a battery-powered electric motor, to increase efficiency and reduce emissionsPlug-in Hybrid Emissions.

PHEVs are capable of short electric-only journeys. For example, the Kuga PHEV has an electric-only range of up to 28 – 39 milesKuga '35 miles'. That means fuel savings and lower emissions compared to other hybrid or conventional engine vehicles.

A Ford PHEV is usually best charged at home using a wallbox, or from a standard plug socket using the cable provided. They can also be charged at some public charge points.

WHY CHOOSE A PLUG-IN HYBRID?

LOW-EMISSIONS DRIVING

PHEVs are capable of zero-emissions driving for journeys up to 28 – 39 milesKuga '35 miles', while offering peace of mind for longer trips with a petrol engine as backup. 

EASY CHARGING

No need to stop and charge if your battery runs low. PHEVs are quick and easy to charge at home with a wallbox or from a standard plug socket using a home charging cable.

SPEND LESS AT THE PUMP

All-electric capability means fuel savings on shorter journeys. Ideal for commuting, school runs or other short hops.

HOW DO PLUG-IN HYBRIDS WORK?

Plug-in hybrids offer two sources of power, combining a conventional ICE engine with a battery-powered electric motor. In addition, our Power-Split Hybrid Technology connects the petrol engine, electric motor, and generator together.

With a lithium-ion battery pack, our PHEVs offer enough electric-only, zero-emissions charging for most daily journeys. They’re efficient too, achieving improved fuel economy and noticeably lower CO2 emissions than other conventional non-hybrid engines.

Charging is easy, via a 23-volt power socket, special Wallbox, or a public charging station.
