Hybrids Ford S-Max and Galaxy get to Europe in 2021January 17, 2020
The production of new environmentally friendly minivans, with which Ford will expand its line of hybrids, will be established in Spanish Valencia.
In early 2021, the American company Ford will replenish the range of its hybrids with electrified S-Max and Galaxy. According to carscoops.com, the automaker intends to invest a large sum of 42 million euros in the assembly of batteries and the production of S-Max Hybrid and Galaxy Hybrid. For these purposes, they will create two new assembly lines that will allow the production of lithium-ion batteries along with the plug-in hybrid Kuga and hybrid S-Max and Galaxy.
As in the case of the new Ford Kuga Hybrid, the Ford S-Max and Galaxy hybrids will receive a 2.5-liter Atkinson gasoline engine, combined with an electric engine, generator, lithium-ion battery and automatic transmission. The power of the power plants for both models will reach 200 horsepower. How many kilometers novelties on one electricity will overcome, has not yet been reported.
But it is known that the hybrid S-Max will be available in five- and seven-seater versions, and the volume of its luggage compartment will be the same as that of versions with internal combustion engines – up to 2,200 liters for a five-seater model. Galaxy Hybrid as standard will receive seven seats and a luggage compartment of 2,339 liters.
In general, by the end of this year, Ford plans to introduce 14 electrified models in the European markets at once.
