Overview

In 2004, Ford announced its first hybrid model––the Ford Escape Hybrid. This compact SUV was well-received and was soon followed by the equally popular Ford Fusion Hybrid sedan. Since then, Ford’s fleet of alternative fuel vehicles has only grown, and the list of 2021 Ford hybrid and electric models will excite anyone looking for both fuel efficiency and performance. Not only does it contain old favorites such as the 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid, but it includes some surprising additions as well. This includes the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 hybrid pickup and the groundbreaking 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E all-electric performance SUV. Since its creation, Ford has not stopped innovating, and for 2021, it will be providing drivers with a collection of powerful and eco-friendly models to choose from.

How does a hybrid work, though? Unlike an engine powered entirely on gas, a hybrid actually works better in situations where stopping and going is more common, like driving through a city, because the braking generates power through momentum and charges the electric battery. An electronic system in the vehicle utilizes the electric engine whenever possible, automatically switching to the gas-powered engine when necessary. By using the electric engine whenever possible, the vehicle saves on gas and cuts down on emissions from burning fuel. Plug-in hybrid vehicles are a little different. A plug-in hybrid has a larger battery that can hold more of a charge so it can operate longer without using fuel, which is why the plug-in hybrid gets a much higher fuel efficiency. These larger batteries can be charged by plugging them into a power source along with regenerative braking systems.  

In terms of driving a hybrid, Ford integrated innovative features like the smart gauge to teach drivers how to conserve energy, including a “tutorial” mode for drivers new to the hybrid experience. This gauge treats energy conservation like a sort of game by growing leaves and vines on the dashboard indicator to encourage more energy-conscious driving. Other gauges show the amount of battery life available versus how much gas is left in the tank, and the fully electric vehicles have only battery life measured. Fully electric vehicles are designed with gauges, which show how far your vehicle can drive in miles, typically an estimate based on your measured driving habits. This gauge takes time to gather data based on your driving habits to become more accurate. 

Hybrids and fully electric vehicles are becoming more widely available overall in today’s market, with companies like Ford leading the way toward a full roster of vehicles that reduce or eliminate emissions. Over time, the one hybrid offered by Ford became several available options across the Ford spectrum of vehicles, building up to a titillating new sport utility vehicle called the Mustang Mach E, which is fully electric and roaring with power. Ford continues to increase the number of hybrids and electric vehicles available, with the ultimate goal of having 40 electric and hybrid vehicles in the lineup by 2022.
