Kuga Hybrid (FHEV) | Furrows Ford

The All-New Kuga adds a Full Hybrid to it's range in 2021

Kuga EcoBlue Hybrid: The all-new Kuga EcoBlue Hybrid enhances Ford’s 150 PS 2.0‑litre EcoBlue diesel engine for even greater fuel-efficiency. The mild-hybrid technology employs a belt-driven integrated starter/generator (BISG) that replaces the standard alternator, enabling recovery and storage of energy during vehicle decelerations, and charging a 48-volt lithium-ion air-cooled battery pack. The BISG also acts as a motor, using the stored energy to provide electric torque assistance to the engine under normal driving and acceleration, as well as running the vehicle’s electrical ancillaries.

The 48-volt system also enables the all-new Kuga’s Auto Start-Stop technology to operate in more situations for additional fuel savings, contributing to anticipated CO 2 emissions from 132 g/km CO2 and 5.0 l/100 km fuel-efficiency.
