Ford Presents Its Electrified Lineup at the Frankfurt Motor Show

At the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, Ford is demonstrating an impressive lineup of electrified vehicles.

The all-new Ford Kuga Plug is a plug-in hybrid version with the highest electrification level in the history of the brand. It is also the first Ford’s vehicle to come with mild, full and plug-in hybrid powertrains.

New plug-in hybrids – the 7-seater Ford Explorer and the 8-seater Tourneo Custom – provide a large enough electric-only driving range and, at the same time, independence of an ICE-powered car.

The all-new Ford Puma EcoBoost Hybrid is a compact crossover using the latest mild-hybrid technology to reduce CO2 emissions, optimize fuel consumption and make steering more responsive. It is first introduced in the stylish Titanium version.

The full-hybrid Ford Mondeo wagon can self-charge from a petrol engine. This model is an attractive alternative to diesel cars, as it provides electric drive, which is a convenient option in urban conditions.

Ford’s Go Electric event is also debuting in Germany. It gives consumers a detailed description of electrified car features. The company believes that by 2022 more than 50% Ford’ passenger cars sales will be electrified vehicles.
