All-new Kuga Plug-in Hybrid
Beautifully designed, remarkably efficient, effortlessly capable. As part of Ford’s commitment to offer 14 electrified vehicles by 2020, the Kuga is available with three hybrid options: a Plug-in Hybrid, EcoBlue Hybrid, and from late 2020, a Full Hybrid will complete the trio. Ford’s advanced hybrid technology is designed to deliver a cleaner, quieter, more sophisticated approach to SUV driving.
Kuga’s advanced Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) technology combines a battery-powered electric motor with a 2.5-litre Duratec petrol engine. The hybrid battery can be recharged at home or public charging stations. Energy recaptured while braking also helps charge the battery as you drive. Fully charged, the Kuga PHEV can drive up to 56km§ on electric power alone, and a total hybrid driving range of up to 748 km.
Wherever the destination, the All-New Kuga Plug-in Hybrid uses two sources of power to get you there more efficiently. An advanced electric powertrain lets you make shorter trips of up to 56 km on zero emissions§ and can recharge anywhere you have access to mains power. For longer journeys, the conventional combustion engine ensures you can go as far as you need to, using powersplit technology to help recharge the Hybrid battery as you drive. While energy captured through regenerative braking also helps to extend your electric range even further.
When you’re driving, a combination of regenerative braking and power drawn from the engine helps replenish the battery. And if you need to recharge on-the-go, you can easily use an ever-growing network of public charging stations too.
The All-New Kuga Plug-in Hybrid is available from €35,433. Price, which is subject to change, includes the SEAI grant (€5,000) and VRT rebate (€2,500). Private customers only.
[§]Kuga PHEV has a battery size of 14.4kWh which gives a maximum all electric range of 56 KM (range may vary depending on the vehicle, weather conditions and driving behaviour). Quoted WLTP Figures with options represent the weighted electric-petrol fuel consumption.
