As one of the world’s best-known and best-loved manufacturers, Ford is renowned for developing vehicles that offer the very highest standards of motoring. And now, with hybrid and electric motoring becoming ever more popular, it’s perhaps no surprise that the acclaimed marque is introducing one of the very best lineups of low or zero emissions models around.
Ford is set to introduce a total of 13 new hybrid and/or electric vehicles to the UK market by the end of 2020, and we at Motors Coalville are looking forward to being able to bring the full selection to motorists in the Leicestershire region. We’re also delighted to be able to detail the various types of models that will be available and how the technology on offer differs between them.

Mild Hybrid vehicles - or MHEVs for short - incorporate a small electric motor to complement the conventional engine found in the car. As such, it is able to help assist in powering key features of the model without the vehicle having to rely on battery charge. Those models from Ford that incorporate Mild Hybrid technology include the all-new Kuga, the new Puma, Fiesta, Focus, Transit Custom, Tourneo Custom, and the new Transit.
Hybrid vehicles differ from their Mild Hybrid siblings in that they are able to power the vehicle by electric charge itself. Switching seamlessly from combustion engine to battery motor in a way that is imperceptible, the result is more efficient motoring. Plus, by embracing such self-charging technology as regenerative braking, there is no need to plug the battery in to charge. Models such as the Mondeo and the all-new Kuga will be available in Hybrid iterations.
As the name suggests, Plug-In Hybrid vehicles require you to connect the battery to a suitable charging outlet in order to replenish the battery. However, in being able to hold a greater charge, they enable you to complete longer journeys on all-electric power, meaning emissions and running costs are significantly reduced. Among the Ford Plug-In Hybrid models available are the all-new Kuga, Transit Custom and the Tourneo Custom.
Running on nothing but electric alone, the all-electric vehicles from Ford - which includes the new Mustang-inspired All-Electric SUV - embrace zero emissions motoring with aplomb. Free from CO2 emissions, you will be able to enjoy a number of money saving benefits, with no road tax or congestion charges to be paid. Similarly, with running costs that are a fraction of those of fuel-powered models, now’s the ideal time to go electric.
