A 20 per cent increase in Kuga Plug-In Hybrid 1 deliveries year-on-year helped the electrified Ford SUV become the best-selling plug-in hybrid (PHEV) of any brand across all European markets for the second year in a row in 2022. 2,3
Kuga Plug-In Hybrid’s intelligent powertrain is designed to provide flexibility for customers, with an all-electric overall range of 57-67 km WLTP 1 and energy consumption from 14.4-15.9 kWh/100 km WLTP allowing frequent journeys using electric power.
The Kuga range was last year enhanced with the Kuga ST-Line X Black Package, giving customers the option to add unique exterior design elements including a black-painted roof, black-finished mirror caps, front fascia vents and rear spoiler, as well as standard black-painted 20-inch alloy wheels.
Kuga models across the range can since last year also be specified with an 18-way adjustable comfort seat option for driver and front passenger, approved by leading spinal health organisation Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V. (AGR), the Campaign for Healthier Backs.
“Kuga Plug-in Hybrid’s growing success shows the role flexible powertrains can play in helping customers make the transition to electric power.”
