The future of driving is electric, and Packey Webb Ford is here to help you make the leap into a brighter, better tomorrow. Ford has already established itself as one of the top EV makers in the world, so if you’ve been thinking about upgrading to an electric truck or SUV, we’re one of your top destinations in Downers Grove, Illinois. Got questions about Ford and its electric vehicles? We’ve got the answers you’re looking for.
Ford currently offers three fully electric vehicles:
But you can expect even more options to come. Ford has already confirmed that the Explorer will go electric, and you can bet that several other major vehicles will get the EV treatment as Ford grows its lineup.
Hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles still have engines, which means they still need fuel and make tailpipe emissions. With an EV, there’s no engine, and that means options like the F-150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-E have extra storage under the hood. It also means you’ll only use electric power when driving, equaling out to zero tailpipe emissions.
You can count on a new electric vehicle lasting as long or potentially even longer than a new vehicle with an engine. Ford offers extensive warranty coverage for its EVs, and your vehicle will require less overall maintenance over its lifetime, helping you save money in the long run.
Ford offers multiple charging options with EVs: You can charge them using a common 120-volt outlet using your Ford Mobile Charger, install a Ford Connected Charge Station at home, or easily charge on the go using the BlueOval™ Charge Network.
Range depends on factors like battery condition, weather, and driving habits as well as the kind of vehicle you have. But no matter the situation, a Ford EV is reliable enough to handle hundreds of miles of zero-emissions driving — a Ford F-150 Lightning with the extended-range battery option maxes out at 320 miles, for example.1
Charging time depends on the method of charging and how much battery capacity you have left, among other things. On the go, a DC fast charging station is your best bet, allowing you to recoup significant driving range in just a matter of minutes.
