Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid Range and Charging Time
If you’re one of the many people sick and tired of paying an arm and leg for gas, it is time to think about upgrading to a more fuel-efficient model. While there are quite a few to pick from these days, here’s why you’ll want to take a close look at the new Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid.
The Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid gets 105 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) when running solely on electric power, which is an excellent number for the class. It also gets 40 MPG combined city/highway when you go with front-wheel drive.
You can drive up to 37 miles just using electricity when the battery in your Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid is fully charged. When you exceed that mark, the gas engine kicks in.
You’ll be able to completely charge the battery in about 11 hours with a regular 120-volt household-style power outlet. With a 240-volt outlet, that goes down to only about 3.3 hours.
