How far you can drive on electric power depends on the type of vehicle. Plug-in hybrids have an electric driving range of up to 28 – 39 miles (WLTP test results)†. While an all-electric car’s range is much further thanks to the larger battery. Newer models like the Mustang Mach-E are capable of driving up to 280 – 379 miles‡ (WLTP test results) on a full charge.
It’s not just about battery capacity. Public charging stations are appearing in more and more locations, making topping up even easier while you’re on the go. The Ford BlueOval™ Charging Network provides more than 21,000 charging points in the UK and is expected to grow to 500,000 charging points across Europe by 2024.

With Ford all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, you’ll be more in control of your electric range than ever before.
As with a conventional engine, driving style has an impact on an EV’s range. High speed and sudden acceleration use more power and reduce range. So, to get the most miles out of your electric vehicle, drive smoothly at a steady speed.
Another tip is to use the FordPass App to pre-heat or cool the cabin while your vehicle is on charge. The power saved on air conditioning means extra range on the road.
Finally, let regenerative braking do its thing. When possible, instead of pushing the brakes, allow the vehicle to decelerate under its own inertia to send power back to the battery.
All Ford electric and hybrid vehicles use regenerative braking technology. The system captures energy that’s usually lost when braking and feeds it back to the battery, helping to maximise range.
For mild and full hybrids, regenerative braking is the only way the battery is charged. For plug-in hybrid and all-electric cars, the system is supplemental and helps maintain charge and improve range.
On plug-in hybrids, the digital dash displays regenerative charging as it happens, so you can watch your EV range increase in real time.
Your EV’s digital dash monitors how much electric driving range your vehicle has left, plus the remaining charge on your battery, so you know exactly when and where to charge.
You can also keep an eye on your electric vehicle’s remaining range and battery using the FordPass app, so you have all the information you need – wherever you are.
Temperatures below 4°C reduce EV battery performance. But there are things you can do to maximise your electric vehicle's range in cold weather:
1. Park undercover to reduce exposure to low temperatures.
2. Plug in when you park and leave the vehicle off while charging.
3. Set preconditioning to warm the battery and cabin while charging.
4. Warm up with heated seats and steering wheel instead of climate control.
5. Remove snow from the vehicle to reduce weight and drag.
6. Drive smoothly and at moderate speeds to preserve battery power.
7. Check tire pressures are correct for safety and efficiency.
