The Americans of 2014 would say electric and hybrid vehicles are only for tree-hugging and tech-loving geeks. However, 2018 seems to be the year that most of us are looking forward to getting our hands on these attractive and pocket-friendly machines.
It is estimated that 35 percent of all car sales will be electric vehicles by 2040, and there is no way Ford is going to miss out on the opportunity of keeping up with the automotive industry's ever-changing demands.
The automotive giant has introduced four unique electric vehicles over the last couple of years and is looking to put $11 billion in investment to develop 40 new electric vehicles by 2022.
Already pumped up to see what Ford might have in store for you within the next few years? Let's show you what Ford has manufactured so far to get an idea of the future technology. Here is our list of Ford's best electric cars to date:
Ranking #7 among the best wagons, the Ford C-Max Hybrid features an AC electric motor, powered by a lithium-ion battery and a 2.0 OL Atkinson-cycle I-4 gas engine. The C-Max comes with comfortable 5-passenger seating, the power of Ford's iconic SYNC 3, and a 188-combined horsepower (that too in an all-electric mode).
The Ford Fusion Hybrid SE is the perfect alternative to your medium-sized sedan that promises reduced emissions and increased fuel economy. As if the pocket-friendly approach of this car wasn't enough, the Ford Fusion Hybrid runs on an extraordinary 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine paired with an AC electric motor, powered by a lithium-ion battery (much similar to its sibling, the Ford C-Max Hybrid). Ranking #14 among mid-sized cars, the Fusion Hybrid also features plenty of power outlets, Ford's legendary infotainment system, and a 188-combined horsepower.
Looking for the ideal car that is not only fuel-efficient, but also has style? The 2018 Ford Fusion Energi SE has all your checkboxes ticked.
Following suit, the 2018 Ford Fusion Energi SE operates on both gasoline and electric power. It has a battery pack that charges via an external power source, such as an electric charging station or a standard electrical outlet. The 2018 Ford Fusion Energi SE is ranked #19 among the best midsize cars and offers an all-electric driving mileage of up to 21 miles.
The one and only TRUE electric-car ever developed by Ford, the Ford Focus Electric is nothing short of extraordinary. With an impressive mileage of more than 100 miles on a single charge, the Ford Focus Electric has everyone talking. The latest model of the car features a 143-combined horsepower, five-passenger seating capacity, and the ability to use regenerative braking to recover energy lost through friction brakes and engine drags.
Although Ford has only introduced only one fully-electric car and three hybrid electric cars, the auto manufacturer promises to deliver on the unique needs and demands of their customers.
