Ford and Pentagon are commited to an electric future; Ford has confirmed plans to release 13 electric vehicles by the end of 2020 and at Pentagon we're excited to introduce you to the range of Mild Hybrid, Hybrid. Plug-in Hybrid and All-Electric vehicles that have been announced so far. This page will help you discover what vehicles have been announced and also explain what the difference is between the powertrains.
At Pentagon we're serious about the electrification of the vehicles we sell so we also have information on What You Need to Know Before Buying an EV, What You Need to Know About EV Batteries and What You Need to Know About Running an EV.
If there is anything you'd like to know that isn't answered on these pages, or if you'd like to register your interest in any of the vehicles mentioned, you can call us on 0333 222 0424 or visit the Pentagon Ford teams in Runcon, St Helens or Warrington.
|Mild Hybrid (mHEV)||An electric motor improves efficency. Mild Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power working together; a conventional engine and an electric motor. The motor cannot power the car alone.|
|Hybrid (HEV)||A blend of conventional and electric power. Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power. They can switch between conventional mode, pure electric mode or use both to power the vehicle as needed.|
|Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)||Plug-in Hybrids have the two sources of power like a Hybrid, but with a larger high voltage battery, enabling you to drive longer distances on All-Electric power.|
|All-Electric (BEV)||Just charge it up and go. All-Electric cars are powered by electricity alone. This means they have to be charged before you can drive.|
