The Ford range has all 4 of the different types of Hybrid & Electric options, for example :
Mild Hybrid : Ford Puma
A new age of cleaner hybrid electric vehicles is here. Ford Puma offers a choice of advanced new EcoBoost Hybrid options. Delivering impressive fuel economy and noticeably lower CO2 emissions than other non-hybrid engines, and all with no compromise to its outstanding, fun to drive performance. In a further step forward, an advanced seven-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission (DCT) option offers a smooth, seamless, less demanding drive particularly in stop-start city traffic.
Hybrid : Ford Kuga
The New Ford Kuga Hybrid has two sources of power: a conventional fuel engine and a battery-driven, electric motor. The system automatically switches between the powertrains, or uses a combination of both, to deliver a perfect blend of power and efficiency. And to make the whole system even more efficient, regenerative braking captures up to 90% of the energy normally lost through friction brakes, then recycles it to recharge the high-voltage battery.
Plug-In Hybrid : Ford Kuga
The New Ford Kuga Plug-In Hybrid you can Plug In. Charge up. Improve Efficiency. 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
