"Commercial clients need more integrated, smarter solutions that are built around a connected business environment", said Ford of Europe's General Manager of Commercial Vehicles, Hans Schep.

Taking on Ford's latest design - as seen on the most recent Focus and Fiestas - the Kuga boasts three electrified variants at launch, ushering in a new era of hybrids for the company.

Obviously a hybrid is not a full EV, which would certainly be bigger news.

The new Puma will go on sale at the end of the year, and it'll be made in Ford's Craiova Assembly Plant in Romania, which has had almost €1.5 billion of investment pumped into it over the last decade.

There is also the 2,0 liter turbocharged four cyliknder engine, hybrid model, and also the PHEV model.

Lots of positives, so looking forward to the weekend". "I feel like I'm doing that and I can I feel like I can still compete". After a 341-yard drive at the par-5 18th, he pulled his approach into the stream fronting the green but still managed par.

The SE Sport and Titanium models come standard with the newest hybrid propulsion system based on an all-new 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle hybrid engine, electronic CVT, front-wheel drive.

The refreshed 2020 Ford Escape looks to continue its hybrid offerings by adding a plug-in variant to its lineup.

The new Kuga will be available as a plug-in hybrid, conventional hybrid or mild hybrid model, as well as with "normal" 2.0-litre diesel and 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines. Combined system output is 198 hp and Ford says that in this setup, the Escape can reach a top speed of 85 miles per hour in pure-electric mode. The battery is charged on the move with the help of regenerative braking technology and even port present on left front fender can be used. What's more, the driver can use the vehicle via one of the few available modes - Auto EV, EV Now, EV Later or EV Charge.

Along with hybrid powertrains, will also be offered with the choice of two Ecoblue diesel engines and one EcoBoost petrol engine. "Harmonious and airy, it fuses premium materials, precise craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology". Ford's USA office says the rear cargo space can carry about 1060 litres of cargo with the seats up - and, we assume, crammed up against the front seats. The Escape's C2 platform uses advanced materials to be significantly stronger, more rigid and electrification-ready, delivering real-world improvements to safety and fuel efficiency.

With this vehicle 44mm wider and 89mm longer than the outgoing version, interior space is much improved, while the boot has grown by 67 litres - with remote seat folding for the rear bench fitted.

The mid-sized five-seat Ford Escape will be bigger and stronger than the current vehicle, but will also manage to be lighter to the tune of up to 90kg. Result: ten per cent increase in torsional stiffness with 90 pounds less weight! The Kuga is now 44 mm longer wider and 89 mm longer, with a wheelbase that's 20 mm longer.
