All-new Ford Explorer PHEV coming to Europe with 40-km range

Heads up everybody, Ford is bringing the Explorer to the Old Continent

The all-new Ford Explorer SUV is set to make its European debut later this year with a plug-in hybrid powertrain and seating for seven.

Inside the new Explorer works a 3-liter EcoBoost V6 petrol engine (350 PS) that teams up with an electric motor (100 PS) for a total output of 450 PS and 840 Nm of torque. A Li-ion battery pack (13.1 kWh) allows for a maximum pure electric range of 40 km (25 miles).

The powertrain sends resources to all four corners via a 10-speed automatic gearbox and Ford’s Intelligent All-Wheel drive system.

Drivers can select how electricity is deployed through four modes - EV Auto, EV Now, EV Later, and EV Charge. Ford says the all-new Explorer will deliver a fuel consumption average of 3.4 l/100 km and 78 g/km of CO2 emissions.

The cabin is built around a 10.1-inch central display mounted in a portrait position and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Standard driving nannies include the likes of Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go, Speed Sign Recognition and Lane-Centring.

With the second and third rows of seats folded down, the Explorer offers a boot space of 2,274 liters, with the cabin alone packing 123 liters work of storage spaces.

In Europe, the new Ford Explorer will be offered in two grades - Explorer ST-Line and Explorer Platinum.
