Currently, Fordís electrified range consists of:

It all depends on the type of electrified vehicle you choose. With the plug-in hybrid options, you can get a range of up to 30 miles, whereas the Mach-E offers a range of up to 370 miles on a full charge.
Initially, electric vehicles can be more expensive to buy, however, running and maintenance costs are significantly lower than that of a petrol or diesel car. In the UK, you could be eligible for a government grant of up to £3,500 (depending on the type of EV you want to buy) and there are savings on fuel costs, tax, congestion charges (where applicable), parking and car maintenance!
Hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles do not need plugged in to be charged. However, all-electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids need to be connected to an electricity supply. The time it takes depends on the vehicle and how you charge it. You can plug in your vehicle at home with a wallbox which will reach full charge overnight. If youíre out and about, a rapid charger can charge up your vehicle quicker. You can find you nearest charging point here.
This is dependent on several factors including type of battery, charging habits and environment, or more specifically temperature. Lithium-ion batteries, the most common battery used in EVs, can last up to 10 years!
