Ford Hybrid Vehicles and Ford Electric Vehicles: Declassified

While hybrid technology has been around for almost twenty years, many people are still learning about these models, and the terminology can be confusing. We're going to outline the key differences between these three types of powertrains so that you can decide which one might be best for you.

  • Ford Hybrid Vehicles make use of hybrid technology. As the name might suggest, this is a combination of two powertrains. In North America, this means a gas engine and an electric engine. Ford hybrid vehicles are "pre-programmed" from the factory to switch between gas and electric engines depending on various conditions. No matter what, you can count on your vehicle running in the most efficient way, without any input from you. Your hybrid may have the EV+ feature, which allows you to toggle to pure-electric driving - this is an advancement over early hybrid vehicles. Please speak to your Ford vehicle specialist to determine your EV range.
  • Ford Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles are almost exactly the same as a Ford Hybrid Vehicle, with the exception of how they are charged. Conventional hybrid vehicles make use of regenerative braking technology that captures and converts kinetic energy into stored power for your vehicle's battery. This is their only method of recharging. A plug-in hybrid, however, has an added benefit of plug-in charging through conventional wall outlets, AC charge stations, or DC fast-charging stations.
  • Ford Electric Vehicles are 100% electric and recharge their batteries through regenerative braking or plugging in at a wall outlet, AC charge station, or DC fast-charge station. Ford electric vehicles boast speedy charge times, which makes road trip anxieties a thing of the past. With our current EV offering, the Mustang Mach-E, you can enjoy emissions-free cruising with legendary power, performance, and advanced technology.

Currently, our Ford hybrid cars in Atlanta, GA, include the Ford Fusion and Ford Fusion Plug-In Hybrid. Our Ford Hybrid SUVs include the Ford Escape SE Sport Hybrid and the Ford Explorer Limited Hybrid. The exclusive EV title belongs to the Mustang Mach-E for the moment, but be on the lookout for more electrified models from Ford in the near future.
