Ford’s Electric & Hybrid Vehicles

Over the past decade we have seen the adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles throughout the United States. It is no surprise that as technology and infrastructure are put into place for these vehicles, they are becoming much more user-friendly and very easy to own and operate. Ford has been on the front line of creating new and exciting Hybrid and Full Electric Vehicles (EV) for the past few years and with the nameplate as prominent as Ford, you can trust you are purchasing a quality product. The ability to have your Hybrid or EV serviced through the wide range of Ford dealerships throughout the country, partnered with the ever-growing network of charging stations, gives you the peace of mind when make a trip with your loved ones.

 

Availability of Electric Vehicles for Custom Order

Types of Electric Vehicles (EVs)

 

BEV
1. Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV)
This type of electric vehicle relies on the sole power of their onboard battery system. This system is charged by utilizing a standard 110V home outlet, 220V larger service outlet for fast charging, or the network of public charging stations throughout the country. This type of vehicle is driven by electric motors and batteries with no input from any gasoline or diesel-powered engine source. A fully electric vehicle utilizes regenerative braking to send electricity back into the batteries. This process involves the electric motor spinning in reverse while applying the brakes, which charges the battery while slowing you down.
PHEV
2. Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV)
This type of electric vehicle utilizes both a gasoline/diesel engine as well as an electric motor and battery system in conjunction to provide power. The system decides which fuel to utilize, whether it be battery power or fuel to maximize the driving range and performance of the vehicle. This vehicle type can utilize the same charging plugs as a full electric vehicle in order to recharge the batteries to their maximum range. A Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicle also utilizes regenerative braking to send electricity back into the batteries.
HEV
3. Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV)
This type of electric vehicle is the most common of the three types and was one of the first to be introduced to the public. These vehicles do not require any outside charging and rely completely on their gasoline/diesel engines and self-contained electric motor and battery. The system will utilize electric power when available in order to minimize fuel consumption and achieve greater fuel economy. In order to charge the battery, regenerative braking and engine power are utilized without any input from an outside charger.

There are many factors to consider when deciding which EV is right for you, such as location, daily travel, and availability of charging stations. Speak to a Susquehanna Ford sales representative to learn about all of the available options!


How can a fully electric or hybrid vehicle save you money?

 

  1. Tax credit – Perhaps the biggest benefit of purchasing a new electric vehicle is the potential tax savings that come along with the purchase. If you are the original buyer of an electric vehicle and it meets the requirements for Kilowatt Hours and Plug-In status, you could enjoy up to $7,500 in tax liability reduction. These funds aren’t realized at the time of purchase, but can be added to the calendar year’s tax return. For more information, check out the rebate calculator on Forbes’ website.

  3. Cost per tank vs cost per charge – In order to find out how much money you could be saving with an electric vehicle, there are a few things that must be considered. Electric vehicles rely on being charged through either a common 110V outlet, or a larger 220V outlet (think of your dryer plug). The price that you pay at home for electricity is measure in kWh or “Kilowatt Hours” (can be found on your electric bill statement), and this cost is significant based upon how many Kilowatts your vehicle’s battery can hold. For example, if your battery holds 100 Kilowatts and your cost of electricity is $0.15 per kWh, you simply multiply the two numbers for a full 100% battery charge: 100 X $0.15 = $15.00 per full charge. If your electric vehicle can get 300 miles per charge, you are effectively spending $15.00 for a “full tank.”

  5. Lower maintenance fees on an electric vehicle – In general there is a much lower cost of ownership for a Hybrid Electric vehicle, however the largest savings can be found with a full electric vehicle. On all Hybrid or Electric vehicles, regenerative braking will help reduce the wear and tear on your braking system as well as joints, bushings, and other components behind your wheels and tires. The electric motor will also reduce the actual engine hours on the vehicle, thus making oil changes and other maintenance items much further away than a standard vehicle. A fully electric vehicle can benefit from the lack of a combustion engine and the maintenance required to keep them running. For example, here are some fixes which won’t be needed: oil changes, serpentine belts, transmissions, alternator, water pumps, and much more!

  7. Warranties – Besides the benefit of saving fuel and being able to use electricity while making your daily commute, most Electric Vehicles have longer warranties on batteries and subsequent hybrid equipment. Being able to rely on your Hybrid vehicle every day and have a longer warranty from one of the oldest and trusted auto manufacturers is definitely an added bonus! An example of this is the fully electric Mach-E, which has an impressive battery warranty of 8 years or 100,000 miles.
