The Ford electric range is here, and it’s just as versatile as you would expect from the world’s leading motor company. From Mild Hybrid vehicles that require no charging at all to All-Electric cars that you can charge at home, on the go and at your workplace, making the leap to electric feels is easier than ever before.
Ford electric and hybrid technology can be split into four categories: Mild Hybrid (mHEV), Hybrid (HEV), Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) and All-Electric (EV). Find out more about Ford’s variety of electric and hybrid cars below.
A Mild Hybrid Ford uses a small electric motor to help power your conventional engine. The car will never solely run on electric power, but it will support the performance of the engine and make you less reliant on fossil fuels. The electric motor can recover energy from braking, which it then uses to power the car's electrical systems.
A Hybrid Ford has two power sources, a conventional petrol engine and an electric battery. Your Hybrid Ford can switch from petrol power to pure electric power for shorter distances. You can also use both power sources at the same time for better efficiency. Your Hybrid Ford will never require plug-in charging as it will charge itself as you drive.
Plug-in Hybrids have a similar set-up to a Hybrid, but with a larger high voltage battery. This means you can drive on pure electric miles for longer distances. Once you’ve used your electric miles, your Plug-in Hybrid will run like a normal Hybrid and charge itself back up. You will also have the option of using a plug-in charger to power back up sooner.
The more environmentally friendly of the bunch, an All-Electric Ford runs solely on electric power. Your All-Electric Ford will be 100% emission-free and offers an electric driving range of up to 370 miles (depending on the model). You can charge your All-Electric Ford using a 230V power socket at home, a wallbox charger or a public charging station.

You’ll immediately notice your fuel costs lowering when you opt for an electric car. To put this into perspective, you can fully charge your electric car for a fraction of the price of a full tank of petrol or diesel. Whether you choose to drive a Ford Hybrid or you’re making the full switch to Ford All-Electric, you’ll be spending less on fuel from the moment you set off.
Although it’s important to check in with your electric car every now and again, you’ll be pleased to know that servicing will be a lot simpler and cheaper. Electric cars are built with fewer moving parts than conventional vehicles. This means that you can say goodbye to servicing costs for changing your oil, spark plugs, fuel filters and belts, to name just a few.
Whether you choose to drive a Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid or All-Electric Ford, you will be lowering your CO2 emissions significantly. Our Hybrids and PHEVs are also far more efficient than conventional engines. So, despite still relying on fuel, they’ll produce fewer exhaust emissions. Of course, your Fully Electric car produces zero harmful emissions.

No, the costs of plugging in and using electricity to fuel your vehicle are significantly cheaper than using conventional petrol or diesel. Many hybrid vehicles can also save you money off your fuel bill without needing to be plugged in. An electric motor will support the engine with running the car. This makes you less reliant on expensive petrol or diesel to fuel your driving. If you have any more questions about the benefits of owning an electric car, contact Sandicliffe today.
Charging a plug-in hybrid or fully electric vehicle used to be an understandable concern, but these days charging stations are much more readily available. Public charging stations are popping up more each day and Government grants are available for home and business charging points.

A Ford mild-hybrid combines Ford’s award-winning EcoBoost engine with a powerful electric motor. The battery regains power by harnessing the energy lost by the vehicle during braking and accelerating. This means you can lower your carbon emissions and save money on your fuel costs without ever having to plug your vehicle into a charging port.
