Electric & Hybrid Vehicles

Discover the BEV and PHEV range

Which vehicle is right for you

If you're considering making the switch to an electrified vehicle, then it's important you understand the differences between them. Below, you'll find more information on the key differences between All-Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles.


All-electric (BEV)

An all-electric vehicle (also known as a Battery Electric Vehicle, or BEV), runs on 100% battery power and is recharged at a charging point. Ford Passenger BEVs have a range of 400-600km5. That means there is no need to fill it with petrol or diesel, and it will emit zero tailpipe emissions when being driven. But they're also great fun to drive, with instant torque, smooth, step-free acceleration and whisper-quiet running.

Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV)

As with all hybrids, a PHEV combines a conventional internal combustion engine with a battery-powered electric motor, to increase efficiency and reduce tailpipe emissions. PHEVs are capable of short electric-only journeys. For example, the Escape PHEV has an electric-only range of up to 56kms2 6. But that may be all you require for daily commutes and short trips.


AC Home Charging (Level 1)

Home charging, also referred to as Level 1 charging, uses an existing power point (10-15 amp, single phase), used in combination with a Mode 2 cable.

AC Home & Public Charging (Level 2)

A dedicated AC EV charger, can be installed as a 'charging box' in homes, apartment complexes, workplaces, shopping centres, hotels etc. It can easily top up average daily vehicle use or deliver a full recharge overnight. At this stage, Ford does not currently have an association with a particular charging equipment provider, however these chargers can be purchased from a number of reputable 3rd party suppliers.

DC Public Charging (Level 3)

DC public charging enables charging in commercial premises and road-side locations to provide faster recharging and quick top ups on the go. DC charging delivers power more rapidly than AC charging and home charging. For example, with a 150kW DC fast charger, the Mach-E Select can charge from 10%-80% in approximately 32 minutes5, 7.

Common myths about electric vehicles


They don't have enough driving range

The average Australian drives 38km1 a day, but the average battery range for current passenger BEVs is around 500kms1.

They're expensive to buy and own

The upfront cost of an EV is currently higher than conventional vehicles, but it's cheaper to run4, saving you on fuel each year.

They take too long to charge

AC Home & Public Level 2 chargers can fully charge an EV overnight, but a Level 3 DC Public charger can do it in less when you’re out on the road.

Frequently Asked Questions

The network of Electric Vehicle charging stations is growing rapidly across Australia as demand for electric powered vehicles increase. You can visit www.electricvehiclecouncil.com.au to see all Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 charging stations nationally.

Like internal combustion vehicles, the real-world driving range of Electric Vehicles is impacted by environmental factors. Variables such as external temperature, driving style, battery age and load size will all impact real-world range2.

All Ford Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) and Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) are covered by the Ford Express 5 Years/Unlimited Kilometre New Vehicle Warranty3. The only difference is that the Electrical Drivetrain and Battery component, are covered for 8 Years or 160,000 km (whichever occurs first).

Charging your EV is as simple as finding a suitable charging station and plugging in your car.

There are three methods for charging your EV, outlined below from slowest to fastest:

  • AC Home Charging (Level 1)- charging your car through a standard three-prong 240-volt wall socket.
  • AC Home & Public Charging (Level 2) - smaller, typically wall-mounted charging boxes often found in homes and shopping centres.
  • DC Public Charging (Level 3)- larger, typically floor-mounted chargers typically found at public charging stations.

Whilst each of these methods will charge your EV, the time taken to reach full charge will vary significantly depending on which option you choose.

All Ford EVs purchased new from a Ford EV Dealer include a portable charging cable.

2. Based on a full charge. Estimated range using Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). Figures shown are for comparability purposes and should only be compared with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. Actual range varies with conditions such as external elements like temperature, driving behaviours, route profile, vehicle maintenance, and lithium-ion battery age and condition. WLTP Overall Range reflects a combined driving cycle. This test is conducted in controlled conditions with an ambient temperature of 23 degrees Celsius and no climate or electrical load.

3. Warranty conditions apply. 5 year/unlimited km Ford Express New Vehicles Warranty applies to new, demonstrator and service loaner vehicles delivered from 1 May 2018. Our goods come with consumer guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. Our warranty does not limit and may not exceed your rights under those guarantees.
Warranty period commences on the date of delivery except where the vehicle is a demonstration or service loaner vehicle, in which case it commences on the date on which it was first registered by an Authorised Ford Dealer.

5. Ford Mustang Mach-E model variants range based on a full charge. Estimated range using Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). Figures shown are for comparability purposes and should only be compared with other vehicles tested to the same technical procedures. Actual range varies with conditions such as external elements like temperature, driving behaviours, route profile, vehicle maintenance, and lithium-ion battery age and condition. WLTP Overall Range reflects a combined driving cycle. This test is conducted in controlled conditions with an ambient temperature of 23 degrees Celsius and no climate or electrical load.

6. Escape PHEV has a battery size of 14.4kWh which gives a maximum all electric range of 56km/35miles (range may vary depending on the vehicle, weather conditions and driving behaviour). Quoted WLTP Figures with options represent the weighted electric-petrol fuel consumption.

7. Charging times may vary. Charging rate and time are dependent on battery state of charge, charger output, battery temperature and ambient temperature.
