Mild Hybrid efficiency
It is assisted by an electric motor. At low speeds, or when stationary, the internal combustion engine can switch itself off and the 48V starter-generator seamlessly restarts it when needed. The separate 48V Li-Ion battery is automatically recharged by regenerative braking during coasting and braking. There is no requirement to connect the battery to a power source.
Mild Hybrid powertrains can be a cost-effective way to join the electric
revolution. They are best suited for people who do a lot of shorter
journeys, especially around town and at lower average speeds. Ford will
be offering both Petrol and Diesel Mild Hybrid powertrains. EcoBoost
Hybrid will be available on Fiesta, Focus and All-New Kuga with our
1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine. Using the latest Euro 6 diesel
technology, EcoBlue Hybrid will be offered on All-New Kuga, Transit
Custom and Transit.
