Why Go Green?
The world is becoming greener and Ford is helping to lead the way by cutting emissions, using recycled materials and increasing fuel efficiency.
It's no wonder that electrified vehicles, also know as electric vehicles or plug in hybrid vehicles, are an increasingly important portion of the Ford vehicle lineup for the 2017 model year. Ford actually sold more plug in hybrid vehicles than any other manufacturer last year.
Ford partnered with Plug Insights in 2014 and gathered opinions from 600 Electric Vehicle Drivers and found that most drivers have no intention of going back to a traditional exclusively gas powered vehicle.
Ford Electric Vehicles have Built-in Global Advantages
Ford engineers selected Fusion, C-Max and Focus to be the inaugural US electric vehicle models because they are the globally highest-volume vehicles. These vehicles also share the same platform which allows them to share many components including electrified technologies, providing efficiencies on a scale that have helped to keep the cost to Ford customers low.

Ford Plug In Hybrid Vehicles are a Good Option
Gresham Ford knows that a plug-in hybrid is a good option for the drivers who want to enjoy energy efficiency without changing the driving experience. Electric vehicles lower fuel consumption when the electric motor is assisting or taking place of the gasoline engine. The automatic charging of the battery when braking occurs helps to fuel the electric motor. Regenerative braking is the key way to recharge the battery in a Ford Electric Vehicle. This technology captures energy from the braking process and converts it to electricity and store it for later use in the car's lithium ion battery.
