Ford now also offers the Galaxy family van and the somewhat sportier S-Max van as a full hybrid (FHEV).
The technology is identical in both vans: Ford combines a 2.5-liter gasoline engine (which works on the Atkinson principle) with an electric motor.
The system output is 190 hp. A 1.1 kWh lithium-ion battery serves as a power storage device.
The interaction between the combustion engine and the electric drive ensures that the average consumption of the Galaxy is around 5.8 liters, and that of the S-Max is 5.6 liters.
The S-MAX FHEV and the Galaxy FHEV can be driven purely electrically at low speeds and over short distances.
The battery is charged by the petrol engine and by regenerative braking or by so-called “sailing” (drive-free rolling of the vehicle without braking drag torque of the engine).
The additional technology does not change anything in terms of space.
The S-Max comes as standard as a five-seater and is optionally available with seven seats.
The maximum cargo space volume is 2020 liters.
The seven-seater Galaxy has 2339 liters.
You can already order the Ford vans.
The prices for the Galaxy start at 50,850 euros, for the S-Max at 47,850 euros.
