Which EV is Right for You?
BEVs, HEVs, & PHEVs: Choosing the Right EV for You
What’s the difference between HEV, PHEV and BEV? What about winter performance? Discover the answers to these questions and more, including range capability, finding public charging stations on-the-go, and at-home charging solutions.
Battery electric vehicles (BEV) are powered completely by a rechargeable battery, so you’ll never need a drop of gas or an oil change. All you have to do is plug in, recharge, and go.
Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) use a battery and gas engine to optimize fuel efficiency and performance. They don’t need to be plugged in because regenerative braking and the gas engine recharge the battery pack.
Plug-In Hybrid Electric
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) are also powered by both battery and gas, using the battery first and switching to the gas engine once the battery is depleted, giving you the best of both worlds.

Ford EV Owners to Access Tesla Superchargers in 2025
Exciting news: Ford EV owners will soon enjoy access to Tesla Superchargers, marking a significant step towards a more integrated and convenient charging network.
Think of “range” as the “distance to empty” indicator you would see in a gas-powered vehicle. The charge an EV’s battery holds is comparable to the size of a conventional vehicle’s fuel tank.
Does Speed Affect EV Range?
High speeds have a negative effect on an EV’s range, but heavy-footed acceleration affects it even more. Moderate acceleration helps get more from every charge.
Does Temperature Affect EV Range?
Outside temperatures have an impact. But here’s a trick for EV drivers: “precondition” the vehicle* while plugged in. It uses your home’s energy to pre-heat or pre-cool your vehicle’s interior – not the battery. Easily pre-program your preconditioning times, based on your schedule.
*Effectiveness of cabin conditioning may be reduced by extreme outside temperatures.
Can Towing Affect EV Range?
Can You Tow With an EV? With an F-150® Lightning®, you bet. However, just like with a gas engine, towing will impact range. Because trailers naturally add weight and aerodynamic drag. So, plan ahead. Find public charging locations along your route, right from your touchscreen with Ford Power My Trip.
