At the Go Electric event in Amsterdam, Ford announced a new “green” line of models under the general name Ford Hybrid. It includes 16 electrified models, including a fully-electric Mustang crossover and a Transit battery box.

The Fiesta EcoBoost Hybrid and Focus EcoBoost Hybrid with a 48-volt starter-generator, which will significantly reduce CO₂ emissions and reduce fuel consumption, have become part of the Ford Hybrid line. Also, the hybrid version received a new generation Kuga crossover and European Explorer – they can drive 50 kilometers with electric. It is expected that this mileage will provide eight-seater minivan Tourneo Custom Plug-In Hybrid. By the end of the year, the company will begin selling the compact Puma crossover with a liter turbo engine and a 48-volt hybrid system.

In 2020, the Mustang-style electric crossover will enter the market. It is expected that without recharging, he will be able to drive up to 600 kilometers through the WLTP cycle. Behind him, in 2021, the Transit battery wagon will appear. In addition, Ford is testing a 10-seater electric Transit Smart Energy Concept, which in four hours of charging can provide up to 150 kilometers of additional mileage.

In addition, during the announcement of new products Ford confirmed that all future models of the brand will be electrified. Electric cars will have access to the charging network of the IONITY consortium, which plans to install 400 terminals across Europe by 2020.
