Regenerative Braking

Regenerative braking is featured on Ford’s Mild  Hybrid vehicles (MHEV), Hybrid vehicles (HEV), Plug-in Hybrid vehicles (PHEV) and Battery-Electric vehicles (BEV).
 
Regenerative braking is an innovative system that charges the battery of electric vehicles by capturing the wasted energy lost through braking and coming to a stop.
 
Regenerative braking also conserves energy to provide efficiencies throughout your journeys.

230w Domestic Sockets

Standard 230w domestic sockets found in all homes can be used to charge Plug-in Hybrid vehicles and All-Electric vehicles.
 
Due to the limited power supply from household sockets, this isn’t the fastest way to charge the vehicle’s battery and can take approximately 4-6 times longer to charge than faster chargers depending on the battery capacity (40kW will take approximately 16 hours to charge).
 
Overnight charging is recommended for using this method.

Ford Wallbox

If you want to guarantee that your vehicle is fully charged every night, then a Ford Wallbox should be considered for installation.
 
Ford’s Wallbox can provide over 20 miles of charge range every hour, meaning a full charge will be achieved for most vehicles when charged overnight. 
 
Please contact the T.C. Harrison team for more information and details on government grant availability.

Public Charge Stations

Public charging stations are readily available to Electric vehicle users across the UK and Europe and are available as fast charge (AC 10-20kW), rapid charge (DC 50-100kW) and high-power charger (DC 150+ kW) which can deliver around 200+ miles of range in from an hour of charging.
 
As of the end of 2019 there were over 10,000 locations with over 30,000 connectors located in the UK’s electrification infrastructure and is growing every month as the demand for electric vehicles is growing.
 
This combined with an additional £2.5m investment by the UK Government for councils in 2020 in support of on-street residential charge points, means that the practicalities of owning and charging an electric vehicle is set to become more convenient than ever in the coming year.
