The new Ford Kuga will debut with First Edition Titanium, ST-Line and ST-Line X trims, available with all powertrains including plug-in hybrid – Ford’s first passenger vehicle to offer plug-in hybrid technology.
The plug-in hybrid’s powertrain utilises a 2.5-litre Atkinson petrol engine that enables it to deliver fuel economy of 201mpg and NEDC CO2 emissions of 26g/km. The PHEV can operate on electric power only, enabling electric only driving for approximately 35 miles powered by the 14.4kWh battery pack.
