In recent years, American automaker Ford has been working effectively to hybridize and electrify many of its most popular vehicles. Among the first vehicles to take this green turn as early as 2021 is one of the consumer's favorite compact SUVs: the Ford Escape. With its youthful and sporty appearance that turns heads, the Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid is a smart choice.

Ecology without compromise

In the last decade, the ecological aspect of a car has become more and more important as a criterion for selecting a car, and with good reason. Fuel consumption is often the first indicator of this aspect: the plug-in hybrid version of the Ford Escape does not disappoint in this sense. It can be driven in electric, hybrid or gasoline mode, which varies the figure, which is nevertheless estimated at as little as 5.8 L/100 km on average.

While this fuel-efficiency aspect sometimes raises concerns, especially when it comes to power, Ford remains true to its reputation by making no compromises. The combination of the gasoline engine, a 2.5L 4-cylinder, and the electric motor produces a good amount of power, with 221 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque.

The plug-in hybrid version is not likely to run out of gas either: its range in hybrid mode is 724 km; in electric mode, it's 61 km. That's more than the vast majority of the SUV's rivals, and even more than the American manufacturer originally estimated! What's more, with a 240-volt outlet, it only takes 3.5 hours to fully recharge, enough to convince even the most harried of consumers.

Another element that should convince even the most reluctant: the plug-in hybrid, thanks to its eco-friendly nature, is eligible for federal and provincial subsidies. The Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid is not that expensive, especially considering the fuel savings it offers.

Another feature that appeals to those who choose the Ford Escape is its distinctive, youthful, sporty look with sleek, aerodynamic lines. That doesn't change; the SUV is still as customizable as ever with 10 color choices, from bright to subdued, but still very bright. Whether you choose Speed Blue, Speed Red, Sedona Orange or a more traditional black, silver, gold or white, you'll shine.

The vehicle is also sure to please the whole family with its many conveniences and technologies, such as the foot-activated power liftgate. An available panoramic roof lets you enjoy the view, and Titanium's 10-speaker premium audio system envelops you in your favorite music.

Of course, state-of-the-art technology comes standard, like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and even a Wi-Fi hotspot. Various options are available depending on preference and version, such as integrated GPS, SiriusXM subscription and wireless charging.

Technology also includes driver assistance and active safety systems that ensure you arrive at your destination without a hitch. Blind spot detection and forward collision warning combined with automatic emergency braking, a rearview camera and several others are among them.

In short, the Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid is a compact SUV that turns heads, and offers all the advantages of a green SUV without concessions.
