For years driving a Ford has been a rite of passage for UK drivers, with the Ford Fiesta continually ranking as the best-selling car. Ford is now betting big on electric, using their iconic names such as Mustang, Explorer, Transit and, in the US, the F-150 to kick off the switch.
Key highlights of Ford
Ford has decades of manufacturing expertise and has long been one of the biggest-selling brands in the UK, with icons such as the Fiesta, Escort, Cortina and Transit being the backbone of British transport.
Historically, Ford has built reliable and affordable cars that people enjoy driving, with a focus on offering a ride and handling feel that’s superior to mainstream rivals. It has a heritage in motorsport, too, meaning it often offers sporty variants that have a cult following such as the Focus RS.
Ford & EVs
Ford now offers an electric Transit alongside the evocatively-named Mustang Mach-E – a stunning electric SUV that offers up to 379 miles of range - one of the most affordable ways to get into a car that can go the distance.
An expected big seller due to arrive on the market soon is the new Ford Explorer. It’s a family-focused SUV with loads of space and practical touches, and is expected to sit at a more affordable price point than the Mustang Mach-E.
Top Ford models
The Ford Mustang Mach-E ticks a lot of boxes with smart styling, impressive electric range, and a fun driving experience, alongside new levels of technology for the brand.
Meanwhile, the E-Transit offers over 190 miles of range. As the biggest-selling van for decades, the fact it’s now available to lease as an EV is a compelling case for businesses.
More Ford electric models including the family-friendly Explorer are due to arrive soon.
Similar brands to Ford
Ford would normally be pitched against big-selling rivals like Vauxhall, Nissan and Citroen. But with the Mustang Mach-E it’s also up against the likes of BMW, Tesla and Audi. When looking for your next electric car leasing deal, it’s important to compare similar vehicles to see which one will be right for you.
