Ford have, and continue to be, one of the most innovative automotive manufacturers in the world. Their enthusiastic approach to the market continues into the world of hybrids, where they are progressively developing their range of vehicles to meet the growing demands.

Ford haven't focussed their sights purely on passenger vehicles either. Their range of commercial vehicles have also undergone the hybrid treatment, which you can read about in our Ford models to be released in 2019 article.

To make it easier to understand, we have broken down the differences between the hybrids available and given you a brief overview of the current range.

What's the difference?

  • Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle.

    Mild Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power, a conventional engine and a battery driven electric motor. The electric motor does not power the car; it assists it.

  • Hybrid Electric Vehicle.

    Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power. They automatically switch between the conventional engine and electric power depending on speed.

  • Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle.

    Plug-in Hybrids have two power sources, similar to Hybrid (HEV) vehicles. The batteries are larger, allowing you to travel further. They need plugging into the mains to recharge.

  • All-Electric Vehicle.

    All-electric vehicles are driven purely by electricity. They need recharging before you can drive anywhere.

Ford have transformed their dependable executive Mondeo into a dedicated Hybrid, without compromising the qualities that make it so popular. The Hybrid system in the Mondeo automatically switches between the conventional engine and electric motors, or uses a combination of both, to deliver optimum power and efficiency.

To enhance the efficiency of the system, the Mondeo Hybrid utilises regenerative braking to capture up to 90% of the energy traditionally lost through friction brakes. The system takes that energy and recycles it to recharge the high-voltage battery.
