Hybrid & Electric Vehicles
These vehicles utilize both an internal combustion engine AND electric motors to propel the vehicle.
Vehicles powered in part by gasoline and part by a battery-driven electric motor.
They seamlessly switch between the gasoline engine, electric motor or a combination of both to offer efficiency and performance.
The battery is automatically recharged by the gasoline engine and through regenerative braking. Hybrids do not plug in.
Plug-In Hybrids (PHEVs)
These are progressive hybrids that expand capability by providing the option of plugging in or not.
To enhance the hybrid experience and maximize the battery capability, drivers can choose to plug into a standard 120V or available 240V outlet.
By fully charging before driving, you may see potential fuel savings and reduce your carbon footprint. Ford PHEVs feature an electric vehicle (EV) mode button which allows the driver to choose electric-only mode (EV Now), saving plug-in power for later use (EV Later), or driving in normal hybrid operation (Auto EV).
PHEVs offer the best of both worlds, giving the driver the opportunity to drive as if in an EV for short trips or in a hybrid for longer trips.
Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs)
Powered completely by a rechargeable battery so you never need a drop of gasoline or an oil change.
Key features are the electric motor, charge port and lithium-ion battery pack.
Battery electric vehicles provide a CO2-free driving experience. Drivers plug their vehicle in to fully charge the battery pack.
While driving, regenerative braking also aids in charging the battery.
