Electrifying future for Ford

Teaser of Ford’s all-new Mustang-inspired fully-electric performance SUV

Ford expects the majority of its passenger vehicle sales to be electrified by the end of 2022, as the company gets set to launch a line-up of eco-friendly new cars.

A Ford Mustang-inspired, all-electric SUV (teased above) is among the vehicles, along with the all-new Kuga Plug-In Hybrid, EcoBlue Hybrid and Kuga Hybrid, all-new Puma EcoBoost Hybrid (see below) and a Mondeo Hybrid, plus am all-electric Transit van.

A recent Ford-commissioned global survey revealed that most people aspire to own an electrified vehicle one day, with almost half (45%) claiming not stopping for fuel is a key benefit of owning one.

However, 40% of people claim to have little or no knowledge of electric vehicles, which means they’re unlikely to make the switch from pump to plug any time soon.

With this in mind, a feature on Ford’s new ‘All-Electric‘ website allows users to input their daily driving routines and see how far they could travel between charges, based on the new “Mustang” SUV’s claimed 370-mile range.

The research also revealed nearly nine in 10 (84%) of hybrid and electric vehicle owners or intenders agree that electric vehicles are fun to drive.

Three in four people aspire to own an electric vehicle one day, including 92% of Chinese people, 73% of Europeans and 53% of Americans.

Lack of charging stations (49%), short battery life (43%) and a need to charge frequently (38%) are the main concerns about owning an electric vehicle.
