Why you should drive a Ford electric car

Ford is the UK’s best selling car brand and has been the most popular new car choice for decades, with the Fiesta and Focus regularly at the top of sales charts. Ford is all about offering a well rounded car, from affordability to technical innovation with a great reputation for reliability and driver enjoyment. 

Reflecting all of this in its electric car range, Ford recently announced that it has doubled its planned electric vehicle production capacity to 600,000 EVs per year by 2023 – accelerating the electrification of its vehicle range.

How long has Ford been producing EVs?

Ford’s venture into electric cars can in fact be traced back all the way to 1903. It wasn’t until 1913 however that Ford began openly working on an affordable electric car – the Edison-Ford. The batteries under the seat on the first electric prototypes were capable of around 50 to 100 miles on a single charge – impressive enough for the time. 

After several decades, Ford announced that road testing of a new production electric car would begin in 1968. Built in England, the Ford Comuta used four 12-volt batteries providing around 40 miles of range and a top speed of about 35 mph. After a few more decades of experimental models, Ford unveiled the Focus Electric at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. 

Ford’s most recent electric car offering is the Mustang Mach-e – the car manufacturer’s first all-electric SUV.

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
