Ford Electric Cars

We have a range of electric cars from Ford available on our all inclusive monthly subscription model. Read on for more info on our range and Ford’s history in the EV space.

Here is why Ford electric cars are so popular

For well over a century, Ford has been one of the biggest names in the automotive industry and has consistently paved the way when it comes to quality and innovation.

Now, as motoring enters the electric era, Ford continues to develop high-quality, affordable cars that are cheaper to drive and have a much more positive impact on the environment.

Our range of Ford electric cars

How long has Ford been producing EVs?

Being friends with Thomas Edison, Henry Ford realised the potential of the electric car even while the internal combustion engine was still in its infancy. In fact, Ford began working on its first electric car in 1914, with early models capable of a range of up to 100 miles.

However, technology couldn’t quite keep up with Ford’s ambition. Throughout the last hundred years, Ford has continued to dabble in EVs, but only now has the technology progressed to the point where consumers can get excited.

Ford’s first modern electric car, the Focus Electric announced in 2009, showed the world that an EV can be indistinguishable from its petrol or diesel counterpart. Now, Ford has announced that by the year 2030 they will only produce electric vehicles – how far they’ve come!

What is it like to drive a Ford electric car?

Ford electric cars are spacious, fun to drive, and have great range – that means you can spend more time driving in comfort than worrying about charging your battery. With the Mach-E boasting 580Nm of torque, they’re also quicker than you might realise and handle like a dream.

What are some standout features of a Ford EV?

The Mach-E 75kWh has a fantastic range of up to 273 miles. It offers all the features you’d expect from an electric SUV, with the added prestige of having the Mustang badge.

They’re sleek, stylish, and loaded with tech, including a 15-inch touchscreen infotainment system, fast charging and have a ‘frunk’ – allowing for even more storage. There’s also additional safety features including Autonomous Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning which come as standard.

How do Ford’s EVs compare to its non-electric cars?

By combining more than a hundred years of experience with the advancements in EV tech over the past two decades, Ford has created a range of electric vehicles that match – if not improve on – their fuel-based counterparts. EVs are fast, quiet, and offer smooth rides.

And these are all in addition to the incredible cost-based benefits that come with driving an electric car. Not only is running an EV cheaper than a petrol or diesel car thanks to exceptionally lower fuel costs, but EVs are also exempt from road tax and cost less to service and maintain.

 

What other benefits come with owning a Ford EV?

If you regularly drive into major cities across the UK, with a Ford electric car you won’t have to pay congestion charges. There are also many free charging stations across the country, helping the money-saving to continue.

On top of this, driving an EV allows you to do your part toward lessening the impact on our environment. What’s not to love about that?

Why driving an EV is great

There are plenty of reasons why driving an electric car is great, and benefits not only you as the driver, but also the environment.

While Ford produces great petrol and diesel cars, the benefits of an EV mean they’re the perfect choice for drivers looking to make the switch to electric:

  • There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, which means maintaining them is cheaper and there’s less that can potentially go wrong
  • Charging an EV is quick and simple – by using a rapid charge point, you can charge your EV’s battery to 80% in as little as 20 minutes
  • EVs are far kinder to the environment, and by using green energy to charge the battery they can be completely carbon neutral after manufacture
  • Compared to petrol and diesel, the cost of charging an EV is considerably cheaper than a tank of fuel
