Electric vs. Hybrid vs. Plug-in
Whether you drive a little or a lot each day, there’s an EV that’s right for you.
Battery electric vehicle (BEV) are powered completely by a rechargeable battery so you’ll never need a drop of gas or an oil change. All you have to do is plug in, recharge, and go.
Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) use battery and gas to optimize fuel efficiency and performance. They don’t need to be plugged in as regenerative braking and the gas engine recharge the battery pack.
Plug-in Hybrid Electric
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) are also powered by both battery and gas, using the battery first and switching to gas once the battery is depleted, giving you the best of both worlds.

With a growing number of home charging options and public charging stations in Canada, getting powered up is easy.
Technology and efficiency combine to offer great performance – including fast and smooth acceleration – in electric vehicles.
There’s no gas engine in an electric vehicle so you’ll no longer need regular gas engine services such as oil changes.
Using the latest technology and innovation, Ford is committed to creating a better drive for you. Our lineup of future-forward cars, trucks and SUVs will include more electrified vehicles by 2020; as well as revamped versions of some of our most popular models such as the F-150, Mustang, Explorer, and Escape.
All-New Trims: Hybrid and ST
As part of the redesign, Explorer now offers two all-new high-powered trims. The athletic look of Explorer ST is more than sheet metal-deep. It's matched by a powerful 400-hp11 engine, a sport- tuned suspension and driving dynamics engineered by the Ford Performance team. The Explorer Hybrid packs a similar punch; It's a no-compromise hybrid SUV that's engineered for big adventures. Not only can it tow 5,000 pounds but it's also fully off-road capable.
Available Powertrains and Hybrid Technology
The new 2020 Escape is available with a choice of Hybrid or Plug-in Hybrid with a 2.5L iVCT Atkinson Cycle hybrid engine. A hybrid engine may help give you more time on the road with less stops at the pump, without compromising performance. The powerful 1.5L EcoBoost and 2.0L EcoBoost with Auto Start- Stop Technology are the available gas engines.
