Adding battery power is the most effective way to improve fuel economy and reduce the emissions of your daily drive. But you don't have to go fully electric to make a difference. As an industry cornerstone, Ford welcomes the responsibility to help move automobility towards a greener future with a diverse and growing lineup of efficient and enjoyable battery-assisted models. Here's a quick look at a few highlights.

Ford Hybrids

Ford hybrid models leverage a small electric motor to assist the engine during high-load situations like acceleration, stop-starting, and ignition. The hybrid battery harvests its energy from the engine and through regenerative, so there's no need to plug in to improve your mileage.

The Ford Escape offers an available 200-horsepower 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder (optional on SE and SEL; standard on Titanium) with an EPA-estimated 41 mpg1. If you need more space and seatbelts for your larger Jacksonville family, the Ford Explorer offers an available 318-horsepower V-6 hybrid (optional for Limited and Platinum trims) with an EPA-estimated 27 mpg1.

Ford believes you shouldn't have to sacrifice efficiency for utility. The Ford Maverick compact truck comes standard with a 191-horsepower hybrid engine that gets an impressive 37 mpg combined1. Need more power for your truck-related tasks? All Ford F-150 models can option an industry-first 430-horsepower PowerBoost hybrid (EPA-est. 25 mpg1).

Ford Plug-in Hybrids

The Ford Escape PHEV offers the best of both worlds, with an electric vehicle's excellent efficiency and the range of a gas-powered model. Its 221-horsepower plug-in hybrid powertrain enables an EPA-estimate 105 MPGe 1. With an all-electric range of 37 miles, it's a great way to try out the EV lifestyle without completely committing to battery power.
