A smAll-Electric motor that helps improve efficiency. Mild Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power that work together –a conventional engine and a battery -driven electric motor. The electric motor does not power the car. It simply assists it.
A seamless blend of conventional and electric power. Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power. They can automatically switch between conventional mode, pure electric mode (for short distances)or use both to power the vehicle as needed.These days, Hybrid Vehicles (HEV) are an increasingly common sight on the road. This is especially true in cities and urban areas, where their fuel efficiency in a typical city can be an advantage.
As with Mild Hybrid (MHEV), these vehicles have an internal combustion engine, but they also have a larger battery and more powerful motor. This provides more assistance to the engine and enables the vehicle to drive parts of short journeys at low speeds using the electric motor alone. Thanks to the conventional engine, this can help improve driving range. This is because the vehicle is capable of using both battery and the internal combustion engine.
Plug In. Charge up. Improve Efficiency. 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.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 capacity of the battery makes the Ford Transit Custom PHEV 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 for longer journeys.
Future Vehicle: Mustang-inspired All-Electric SUV
100% Electric. Just charge it up and go. All-Electric cars are powered by electricity alone. This means they have to be charged before you can drive.
What vehicles are eligible for the Plug-in Car Grant?
Currently, only the New Transit Custom Plug-in Hybrid is eligible.
Cars that have CO2 emissions of less than 50g/km and can travel at least 112km (70 miles) without any emissions at all are eligible. Vans that have CO2 emissions of less than 75g/km and can travel at least 16km (10 miles) without any emissions at all.
Where is my nearest charging point?
You are able to find out where your nearest electric charging point is on a feature called ‘Map your Trips’ on the Ford Manufacture website.

What is the electric range of the All-New Kuga Plug-in Hybrid?
The 2.5l petrol All-New Kuga Plug-in Hybrid 225PS has a pure-electric range of up to 35 miles*.
*Based on full charge. Estimated range using Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) applies to an available configuration. Actual range varies with conditions such as external elements, driving behaviours, vehicle maintenance, and lithium-ion battery age.
