Introducing the All-New Ford Kuga Plug-In Hybrid​

Plug-In Hybrid technology available on a Ford Passenger Car for the first time as the exciting All-New Kuga launches at Gates​

There is little that excites us more than the launch of a new Ford vehicle! Cue the All-New Ford Kuga, available as a Plug-In for the first time in a Ford Passenger Car. And what a stunning model it really is! The smooth lines, the desirable technology, the remarkable efficiency - this SUV is aiming for the top spot and we’re pretty sure it will win.

It’s easy to be enthused about new cars arriving in the Gates showrooms but, as part of Ford’s commitment to electrifying its range by bringing 14 electrified vehicles to market by the end of 2020, this one is even more exciting.

The Plug-In Hybrid technology quite literally brings with it a breath of fresh air, providing a seamless blend of power from a battery-powered electric motor and a 2.5-litre Duratec petrol engine. This combination allows drivers to enjoy the best of both worlds by completing short journeys using only electric power and longer journeys with the fuel-efficient combustion engine. And those short journeys can probably be longer than you think as the electric-only drive mode (EV Now) offers a range of up to 56km.

There are three other electric vehicle modes too: use the petrol engine only in EV Later mode; a combination of both with EV Auto; or recharge the hybrid battery while driving with EV Charge. The advanced technology uses regenerative braking to harness power created while moving, pumping it back into the battery so you are charging while moving.

When you need to plug the vehicle in to charge externally, it couldn’t be easier. Every All-New Kuga Plug-in Hybrid model sold comes complete with two charging cables. The first is for charging via a regular 240-volt socket at home. The second is for charging at public fast-charge stations. You simply attach the cable and let it power up. You can even check the charge status via the FordPass app which is available on all smartphones. If you’re keen to achieve faster charging at home, a specially installed Ford Wall-Box can take your Kuga from 0-100% charge in under 3.5 hours.

All of this electrification culminates in outstanding fuel consumption and highly impressive CO2 emissions figures of just 26g CO2/km which, of course, move to zero when driving in electric-only mode. So you can improve air quality, reduce exhaust emissions and save money on fuel.

But what does it drive like? We think the All-New Kuga Plug-In Hybrid provides a quiet, responsive and capable driving experience - throw in some innovative driver assistance technologies with infotainment and connectivity features from Ford SYNC3, and you have a mighty inviting drive. But don’t just take our word for it – get behind the wheel of the All-New Kuga Plug-In Hybrid yourself.
