Kuga PHEV is expected in European and North American markets (as Escape PHEV) soon.
The mid-size 5-seat crossover/SUV showcased in two colors and trim examples looks attractive and for sure will help Ford to lower average CO2 emission to required levels until some proper all-electric models arrive.
Equipped with a 14.4 kWh battery, Kuga PHEV is expected to go up to 50 km (31 miles) in all-electric mode.
