Let's talk electric vehicles!
We get asked about electric vehicles a lot. Whether is be for personal use or commercial, there's an electric vehicle for everyone.
At Peoples Ford we are delighted to welcome you to the future of driving through the fantastic range of Hybrid and All-Electric vehicles which are now included in the cutting-edge Ford line-up.
Don't worry, we're here to help you with all things Electric Vehicle and break it down to help you ensure you find the perfect EV fit.
There are currently four types of electric powered engines available in the Ford line-up: Mild Hybrid (MHEV), Hybrid (HEV), Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV), and All Electric (BEV).
Here are just a few examples of Ford electric vehicles...
The All-Electric E-Transit. Purpose-built to be as tough, capable and versatile as ever. Part of the ever growing Ford range of battery electric vehicles, this electric van is ushering in a new era for the iconic Transit van.
Following the launch of the All-Electric E-Transit, Ford have launch the first of a further four all-electric commercial vehicles which Ford Pro will introduce by 2024. Speak to our team more information.
Beautifully sculpted design, state-of the-art technologies - this is Ford’s first all-electric SUV. This electric vehicle is a head turner for sure!
All-New Tourneo Custom
Welcome to your all-day, every day, friends, family and work-friendly All-New Tourneo Custom. Completely reimagined with plug-in hybrid options, plus, for the first time we're introducing the all-new, all-electric E-Tourneo Custom.
Plug In. Charge up. Improves efficiency versus a mild hybrid or hybrid engine. Plug-in Hybrids have the two sources of power like a hybrid, but with a larger high voltage battery, enabling you to drive longer distances on all-electric power.
Includes E-Transit, all-new E-Transit Custom and all-new E-Tourneo Custom.
These models cannot drive solely on electric energy. The car is still powered by a conventional engine, but has a small electrical motor which assists it to improve the efficiency of the output. The separate 48V Li-ion battery is automatically recharged by regenerative braking during coasting and braking. There is no requirement to connect the battery to a power source.
Includes Transit Custom, Transit Van, Transit Double Cab, Transit Custom Kombi and Transit Chassis Single Cab.
These models are increasingly popular in cities and urban areas. The key identifier with a Hybrid is that they switch between two sources of power, conventional and pure electric. The difference from Mild Hybrid is that the Hybrid has a larger battery and more powerful motor which means the vehicle can run solely on electric power for low speeds and parts of small journeys, making the Hybrid engine a very efficient choice.
Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV)
Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEV) have all the functionality of full Hybrid technology, with the added advantage that they can be charged from an external electricity supply. The larger capacity of the battery makes them capable of zero-emissions while driving for ranges of up to 30 miles (50 kilometres), with the ability to switch to Hybrid mode to conserve battery life and to petrol or diesel-only for longer journeys.
