Ford - The Future of Mobility
The days when your only options were just a petrol or diesel engine are gone forever. Now, with Mild Hybrid, Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid and All-Electric Vehicles, you’re spoiled for choice. Understanding all of that new technology can sometimes be a bit confusing. But with the right information, the power is in your hands.
Ford plans to release 16 fully electric vehicles within a global portfolio of 40 electrified vehicles by 2022. Our all-new fully-electric performance utility vehicle arrives in 2020 with a targeted range of approximately 300 miles/480km.
Mild Hybrid powertrains can be a cost-effective way to join the electric revolution. They are best suited for people who do a lot of shorter journeys, especially around town and at lower average speeds. A choice of manual or automatic transmission may be available.

The electric revolution isn't just about vehicle technology. We're also investing in the infrastructure that powers longer distance journeys. IONITY is a joint venture between Ford, BMW Group, Daimler and the Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche. Together, we’re building a reliable, high-powered fast charging network across Europe to help you make longer journeys with less time spent charging.
The average cost of charging an electric vehicle to travel 100km is typically lower than the average cost of petrol or diesel over the same distance. And because electric motors have fewer moving parts than combustion engines, their upkeep and maintenance costs can be less than a conventional engine too. That’s good news in the long run, because it means less money spent on fuel and maintenance over the life of your vehicle.
With the popularity of electric vehicles increasing every year, it’s now easier than ever to use them for longer journeys. There are more than 120,000 charging stations across Europe, with up to 500,000 planned by 2020.
You can power up from a standard domestic socket, a wall charger or a DC fast charging point. So it’s possible to recharge your vehicle whether you’re at home, work or on the move.
If your car’s equipped with a Hybrid or All-Electric powertrain, it is capable of producing lower emissions compared to an internal combustion engine. For an All-Electric vehicle zero emissions are produced while driving
