Ford strives to educate customers about electrified vehicles.
Ford’s new All-Electric website helps users see how far an electric car can take them, and understand that EVs have much more advantages than drawbacks.
This is part of the company’s on-going initiative to inform consumers about mild-hybrid, hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles.
The latest survey conducted by Ford finds out that people will mostly prefer to use an electrified vehicle one day, but they are not ready to give up fuel (45% respondents).
40% motorists still know little about electric cars and their benefits. So, Ford wants to debunk some myths and help people find the best car for their needs and lifestyles.
According to Ford’s findings,
- 9 of 10 (84%) hybrid and electric vehicleowners admit they are fun-to-drive;
- 3 of 4 men want to own an electric car one day (92% Chinese, 73% Europeans and 53% Americans);
- nearly 73% (3 of 4) owners and intenders of hybrids and EVs agree that such cars are easy to own;
- almost 9 of 10 (87%) respondents believe they need a special plug to charge an electric vehicle.
People doubt about owning an electric car by reason of lack of public charging stations (49%), short battery life (43%), necessity to charge too often (38%).
Following its electrification program, Ford will launch a Mustang-inspired all-electric SUV in 2020.
Moreover, its popular models, such as the Puma, Kuga, Transit / Torneo Custom, Fiesta, Explorer, have got plug-in and mild-hybrid or all-electric versions.
