An EV is a shortened acronym for an electric vehicle. EVs are vehicles that are either partially or fully powered on electric power. Electric vehicles have low running costs and are very environmentally friendly as they use little or no fossil fuels (petrol or diesel) and use features such as regenerative braking to capture wasted energy, charging the vehicle’s battery further to boost efficiency.
A small electric motor that helps improve efficiency.Mild Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power that work together - a conventional engine and a battery-driven electric motor. The electric motor does not power the car. It simply assists it.
A seamless blend of conventional and electric power.Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power. They can automatically switch between convention more, pure electric mode (for short distances) or use both to power the vehicle as needed.
Plug in. Charge up. Improve efficiency.Plug-In Hybrids have two sources of power like a hybrid, but with a larger high voltage battery, enabling you to drive longer distances on all-electric power.
100% electric. 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.
A common concern for drivers is how and when electric cars need charging or – in the case of a hybrid model with a fuel tank – filling up.
The good news is that several hybrid and electric models have a range comparable to that of cars with traditional engines. Improvements in the technology behind them mean that range capacities are constantly increasing – but of course it’s important with any car to know how it’s refuelled, no matter how often this is needed.
Does your current vehicle not reach the minimum standard for emissions to enter low emission zones? If you, or someone you care for, receives the Higher Rate Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment, War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement or Armed Forces Independence Payment, you could be entitled to a new Ford vehicle on the Motability scheme.

Mild hybrids (mHEVs) like the Ford Puma have a small electric battery that assists driving but never powers it completely, relying mainly on the internal combustion engine. They therefore have a comparable range to cars with conventional engines. They recharge the battery internally and only need their fuel tank filling up to refuel.
Plug-in hybrids like the Ford Kuga can drive local distances on purely electric power, and are capable of charging both while on the move and through a connection to an external power source.
They have an electric range of 35 miles, with a 45L fuel tank for driving further distances. Battery charging (from 0-100%) takes approximately 3.5 hours through a Wallbox, or six hours through a standard domestic socket*.
All-electric vehicles like the Mustang Mach-E run on battery power alone, with an electric range from 202 - 372 miles depending on the model.
Zero fuel. Zero emissions on the road. So, they’re better for the environment and, with government purchase incentives, reduced road tax and no penalties in some low emission zones, they’re good for your wallet too.
