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 34 miles, with the ability to switch to Hybrid mode to conserve battery life and to petrol or diesel-only for longer journeys.
To date, a fleet of 20 Ford Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid vans has covered 150,000 miles within the city of London. During the trial, 75 per cent of the fleet’s mileage in Central London and 49 per cent in Greater London has been completed using pure electric power. Proving that even without a fully established EV Charging network, our Ford Hybrid Technology is able to dramatically reduce tailpipe emissions in the city and urban areas.
Ford is offering a number of practical ways to ensure your Plug-in Hybrid or All-Electric vehicle’s battery is kept charged. Depending on the type of electric car or van you choose, there is a variety of Charging options and solutions we can provide. We want to make Charging your Plug-in hybrid or electric vehicle as easy and painless as possible.
