Ford’s Plan for the Future of Electric Vehicles

2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid

Electric vehicles are the future of driving, and Ford is on the forefront of electric innovation. Their plan for the future includes power, excitement, capability, and most importantly, efficiency.

Our team at The Lake Dealerships is taking an in-depth look at Ford’s plan for electric vehicles. Let’s see what they can bring to the streets of Lewistown, State College, and Bellefonte, Pennsylvania.

Electric and Hybrid Ford Vehicles

2020 Ford FusionOne of the best things about Ford’s plan for electric vehicles, is that you don’t have to wait for the future. You can get behind the wheel of an all-electric or hybrid Ford today.

If you’re looking for a versatile SUV, both the Ford Explorer and the Escape offer hybrid powertrains. You can also opt for the hybrid or plug-in hybrid Fusion, if you need a compact sedan.

There’s also the all-new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E. This all-electric vehicle brings you the exhilaration that comes with a Mustang, and couples it with SUV versatility. As we draw closer to its release date, it’s also possible that the reincarnation of the Ford Bronco will offer a hybrid powertrain.

Ford has even built an all-electric prototype of the F-150 that was shown towing over one million pounds in a one-time demonstration.

Benefits of an All-Electric Vehicle

When you get behind the wheel of an all-electric Ford, you may qualify for some unique advantages.

First, there’s the Federal Electrics Drive Motor Vehicle Tax Credit. This program may qualify you for as much as $7,500 in federal tax incentives when you purchase an all-electric vehicle like the Ford Mach-E.

Ford’s electric vehicles also have fewer moving parts than traditional gas-powered vehicles. That means you may be able to save on scheduled maintenance costs. Plus, the factory-certified technicians at our service center have all the training required to keep these advanced systems performing at their best.

Charging Convenience

2020 Ford FusionPowering up your all-electric Ford will be a breeze. There are over 20,000 charging stations across the country, and two of them are coming to our dealership.

Ford offers multiple at-home charging solutions to fit your needs. The Mobile Charger comes standard with any all-electric vehicle, but you can also opt for the available Ford Connected Charge Station.

You’ll get an estimated 32 miles of range per charging hour with the Ford Connected Charge Station plugged into a 240-volt outlet. The Ford Mobile Charger, on the other hand, will provide 22 miles of estimated range per charging hour when plugged into a 240-volt outlet. You can also plug it into a 120-volt outlet for a convenient overnight charge.

Finally, there’s FordPass™ On-the-Go. It makes it easier to manage your charging needs. It helps monitor charging progress, locate nearby charging stations, and plan out trips with your all-electric Ford.
