Mild Hybrid Vehicles (MHEV) is where the internal combustion engine is assisted by an electric motor. At low speed, or when stationary, the engine can switch itself off and seamlessly restarts when needed. The separate battery is automatically recharged by regenerative braking during coasting and braking. There is no requirement to connect the battery to a power source. Mild Hybrid powertrains can be a cost-effective way to join the electric revolution

Hybrid Vehicles (HEV) 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 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 with the ability to switch to Hybrid mode to conserve battery life and to petrol or diesel-only for longer journeys.​

All-Electric Vehicles (BEV) run on battery power alone. Zero fuel. Zero emissions on the road. So, they're better for the environment and, with government purchase incentives, reduced road tax and no penalties in some low emission zones, they're good for your wallet too.

FAQ's

Where is my nearest charging point?

Close

You will simply be able to use the FordPass app or your vehicle navigation system. Both will show you the exact locations, availability and cost of different charging stations.

If you are on a journey, both the app and navigation will find chargers along your route and update your ETA to include charge times. 

You can even pre-plan a journey from the comfort of your home and then send it to your Mustang Mach-E, so you’re ready to go when you leave.

How can I charge an electric car at home?

Close

Electric vehicle owners typically do 90% of their charging at home. (Source) And it’s likely to be the cheapest option, unless your employer offers free charging at work.

With a Ford Connected Wallbox installed at home, you can plug your electric car in overnight, just like your phone and could get yourself close to a full charge in the morning. With our specialist partners, we can assist you with the installation (at additional cost). More details on the Ford Connected Wallbox will be coming in spring 2020.

You can also charge slower using your standard equipment Ford Varipower Home Charge Cable in a normal household socket, or in a higher power industrial socket. What is the electric range of the Kuga Plug-in Hybrid?

The 2.5l petrol 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.

Imagery and information shown throughout this website may not reflect latest UK specifications, colours may vary, options and/or accessories may be featured at additional cost and locations and vehicles used may be outside of the UK.

How long does it take to charge an electric car?

Close

There are various ways to charge an electric car quickly:

Public AC Charger: (11-22kW). For some of these, you’ll need to have your public charge cord, which comes as standard with the Mustang Mach-E and you’ll get around 30 miles of range per hour.

50 kW DC Charger: These chargers are already commonly available in many countries. A charge cord will always be attached to the station, so you won’t need to use your own. They can deliver around 185 miles of range every hour.

150 kW DC Charger: These deliver the fastest charging, adding around 350 miles of range per hour, without the need for your  public charge cord. The number of high-power chargers is continuously growing, and Ford are a partner in the IONITY network, spreading high-power chargers across European highways.

All values are based on typical conditions. Actual charging rates and ranges achieved may vary.

How do I pay for charging?

Close

With a FordPass charging subscription you pay for your charging using the 'pay as you go' method. Each time you charge, you’ll receive a notification shortly after, with the details of your charge and the cost that will be billed to you.

What is the range of an electric car?

Close

Electric car ranges vary a lot, from city cars with smaller batteries to SUV’s with much larger batteries. The Mustang Mach-E has a targeted range of up to 273 miles with the standard range battery, or up to 379 miles with the extended range battery.**

Think about your longest regular journey and how far you actually drive on a daily basis. Then also consider that if you’re able to charge at home you can ‘fill up’ every night just by plugging in. It soon becomes clear that with these ranges, most regular trips can be made by charging at home. And when you do have a long distance trip, public charging, and IONITY high power charging through FordPass, can easily be planned as part of your trip.

How do I get a better range in winter?

Close

Batteries have an optimal operating temperature, and they heat and cool themselves to achieve it. They have to power everything that you switch on, so everything you do to reduce the power needed will improve your range. There are many ways you can help to maximise the range of your electric car during cold weather:

  • Pre-heat your car while it’s charging, before you leave.
  • Remove any snow so it’s not heavier than necessary.
  • Use the heated seats and steering wheel rather than heat up the entire cabin.
  • Drive economically – a steady speed that isn’t high, with gentle acceleration and braking etc.
  • Maximise the power recovered through regenerative braking by braking gradually when possible.
  • Connect your electric car to an external power source whenever it’s parked, to keep the system warm from an external source and to re-charge.

How much does servicing cost for an electric vehicle?

Close

Over 5 years (or 60,000 miles), Mustang Mach-E could help you save up to 50% on scheduled servicing, compared to a combustion engine vehicle.†††

This is because electric vehicles have fewer moving parts, so maintenance costs should be lower. Plus, the Mustang Mach-E comes with an 8-year battery warranty too.

Do I need to pay road tax for an electric car?

Close

Some electrified cars are exempt from road tax, while others benefit from a discount compared to petrol or diesel vehicles. Right now in the UK, fully-electric cars aren’t subject to any road tax, or the additional tax from year two for vehicles costing over £40,000.

How much does it cost to charge an electric vehicle? And what’s the difference in cost between electricity & conventional fuel?

Close

Typically, charging an electric vehicle costs £627 a year. Compared to £1,971 a year for petrol.‡‡‡.

Why are Ford making electric vehicles?

Close

Electric vehicles are not only a necessary next step towards making the future of driving CO2 neutral, they also have their own new, exciting characteristics.

Our plan for electrification is simple. We’re taking the things people already love about Ford: capability, performance and technology, and transforming them through the unique qualities of electric vehicles.

How long do electric car batteries last?

Close

Our Ford Electric vehicles are built to the same high quality standards as our conventional vehicles. That’s why we give an 8-year/100,000 miles warranty on our batteries.

What affects an electric car’s range?

Close

Just like in petrol or diesel-fuelled cars, the range of electric vehicles can be affected by a few factors. Here are some main things to consider:

  • High speeds and heavy acceleration use more power and reduce range, so you’ll get more miles out of your potential range by travelling at a steady speed and accelerating gradually.
  • Extreme hot or cold weather conditions affect batteries and can reduce range. Heating or cooling the inside of your vehicle will also draw extra energy from your battery. We’d recommend adjusting the inside temperature of your vehicle while you’re still plugged into the charger.
  • Regenerative braking can capture and reuse more than 90% of the energy normally lost during the braking process, recharging the high-voltage battery and maximising your range. Try to predict traffic situations ahead to optimise your braking for maximum energy recuperation.

Do electric cars produce tailpipe emissions whilst driving?

Close

No, fully electric vehicles produce zero tailpipe emissions while driving. And if you charge your electric vehicle using renewable/green energy, you can reduce your CO2 impact even further.

Which charge cables do I get and where can I use them?

Close

When you buy a Mustang Mach-E you will get these cables as standard:

  • A Ford Public Charge Cable (Mode 3) to use with public AC chargers,
  • A Ford Varipower Home Charging Cable to charge at domestic and industrial socket outlets in your country, with the necessary ‘pigtail’ connectors to plug in to the different sockets.

You may also need additional 'pigtail' adaptors to charge in other countries.

You will need to use the charging equipment supplied in line with the instructions provided in the owner’s manual.
