Pioneering Motoring in the UK for Decades

As one of the UK’s favourite auto manufacturers, Ford has brought dynamic performance, distinctive style and pioneering technology to our roads for decades. And with a global focus on slowing climate change, the brand has committed itself to the development of hybrid and electric cars, bringing an extensive range of cleaner models to the market.

Not only do these vehicles deliver lower emissions and greater efficiency, they also retain the same powerful and exciting drive that Ford customers have come to expect. Choose from a range of award winning models, and enjoy the benefits of greener motoring.

Types of Electric Vehicles​

There are four types of electric vehicle, all of which can be found in the Ford line-up. Mild hybrid and self-charging hybrid cars are the easiest way for customers to discover electrified driving. Both these types of vehicle have a small battery pack and motor that provide support to the combustion engine. They don’t need to be plugged in to charge up, and offer a power boost during acceleration alongside lower emissions. Self-charging Ford hybrid cars can only travel a few miles on electric power alone, while mild hybrids do not have the capability to run without the combustion engine. 

Plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs) represent a greater shift from traditional motoring. Both require you to plug them in to recharge the battery, with EVs completely disposing of a combustion engine. PHEVs typically have a petrol engine as well as an electric motor, which offers around 30-40 miles of zero-emissions range. EVs can travel up to 300-400 miles on a single charge, and of course, emit no CO2 at all.
