The All-new Ford Explorer Plug-In Hybrid

Announced at Ford's Go Further event in Amsterdam recently the all-new Ford Explorer is coming to Europe as a unique plug-in hybrid version of America’s all-time best selling SUV.

Boasting unstoppable design and un-rivalled capability, the seven-seat Explorer Plug-In Hybrid will be offered in two distinctive, high-specification, left-hand drive variants – the sporty, Ford Performance-inspired Explorer ST-Line and the luxurious Explorer Platinum.

Both are powered by a combination of Ford’s 3.0 litre EcoBoost V6 petrol engine, electric motor and generator to deliver 450 PS and 840 Nm of torque, alongside more than 40 km pure-electric city driving capability.

Standard Ford Intelligent All-Wheel drive technology supported by seven Drive Modes and Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission optimises performance in scenarios from urban driving to off-road. A refined and confidence-inspiring driving experience is enhanced with sophisticated driver assistance technologies as standard, including Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Speed Sign Recognition and Lane-Centring functionalities.

An exceptionally spacious, luxurious, comfort-focussed interior also offers advanced features including a 10.1-inch central portrait-mounted touchscreen and 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster display.
