Ford Family Of Plug-Ins Have Logged 65 Million Electric Miles

MAR 13 2014 BY JAY COLE 11

Every now and then the 3 largest sellers of electric vehicles publically tout their offerings’ total “all electric miles driven” numbers:

  • Nissan LEAF: 446 million miles
  • Chevrolet Volt: 413 million miles
  • Tesla Model S: 120 million miles

(LEAF/Volt numbers based on user participation, Tesla extrapolated from last update)

But what of Ford?

Recently the company has been selling a lot more plug-in vehicles; in fact for February no other auto maker in North America sold more.

Well, much like their reporting of the monthly sales, Ford does things their own in way.   But in the end, we still get the information we need to know.

Today, via a bulletin to employees we know how many EV miles Ford’s plug-ins have driven:

“I’s so rewarding to see our customers enjoy the products not just as hybrid vehicles but as great all-around vehicles, and that’s exciting for the team. Through January, data on our plug-in vehicles (Ford C-MAX Energi, Ford Fusion Energi and Ford Focus Electric) shows us that the total number of electric miles driven for Ford customers has surpassed 65 million miles, increasing at a rate of 290,000 electric miles per day.”

Since 2012, Ford has sold 20,604 plug-in vehicles in the United States.  Internationally (including Canada) about 750 more.

Ford also notes how much CO2 has been saved, and how customers are utilizing their Energi products:

“…over four million kilograms of CO2 has been avoided by driving electric in our Ford plug-in vehicles. The data is also shows that customers are taking occasional longer trips and the Energi products are able to accommodate, but nearly all weekday trips are performed in electric mode.”

Hat tip to Alan!

Way to go, Ford.

Doing a bit of quick math, that would be over 97 million additional electric miles(335 days * 290,000) by end of December 2014 and over 160 Million total electric miles driven by Jan 1, 2015.

The data also shows that customers are taking occasional longer trips and the Energi products are able to accommodate, but nearly all weekday trips are performed in electric mode. “

Is there too much freedom for the people in EVs for the Fords of the world to allow there broad implementation. Still facist after all these years.

My guess is that in 5 years or so, after some further battery enhancements (more energy, less size/weight) we will see much broader implementation.

Unless fuel cells take over by then (sarcastic laugh). 😉

Brother Ken,

My guess is that you have never lived under a fascist regime, and no your mother’s basement doesn’t count. 🙂

Maybe you should move to Crimea and wait for Lada to start making a BEV. You can enjoy your new found freedom while you wait.

Again shows, that Ford’s plugins sales are close to non existing, compared to their total number of cars sold worldwide.

They have to start somewhere. Doing it now, is better than putting off transitioning later.

I find it hard to support your “nonexistent” claim when they were the #1 seller of plug-in cars last month, beating out Nissan and Tesla.

the ford fusion plug in sucks though, cant even run on pure electric without the stupid engine kicking in and the exhausts making noise.

and has the same trunk space as my smart car lol

a lot of people dont know that, they knock the smart yet that thing has the same amount and its like 14 feet

Sorry, but your statement is incorrect. The Fusion Energi can operate as an electric car for approx 21 miles without the ICE running. And it has more luggage space than a smart car, and a heck of a lot more passenger space.

Wow, 14 feet? Isn’t that like almost 2 car-lengths, well maybe 6 Smart Car-lengths? Maybe you meant 14 cubic feet? Does that sound better?
