Ford Electric Vehicle Information

Chastang Ford Is Your EV Expert

Ford electric vehicle information is changing fast and Chastang Ford is here to provide Houston, TX drivers all the important EV updates happening in the Ford ecosystem. From electric vehicle vehicles like the F-150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-E, to batteries, charging options and Federal Tax Credits, we aim to provide Ford electric vehicle shoppers all the information they need to know to make an informed EV purchase decision.

Which Ford EV Is Right For Me?

The type of battery and/or engine that powers your EV matters. It’s important to make the right decision not just based on your vehicle needs, but also on charging availability at your residence. For example, if you live in an apartment complex that offers limited charging stations, a traditional hybrid that doesn’t require charging might be more convenient for your lifestyle.

Battery Electric

Charging is easy both at home and on the road. When plugged in overnight at home, your Ford EV will recharge while you do. Ford offers North America’s largest electric vehicle public charging network, with more than 12,000 places to charge.
Charging Hybrid

Traditional Hybrid

A hybrid is a gasoline engine and an electric motor work together to drive the vehicle. A hybrid does not need to be plugged in — the battery charges while the engine is running and uses regenerative braking to capture energy used by the brakes.
Charging Plugin

Plug-in Hybrid

A plug-in hybrid operates like a traditional hybrid while utilizing a gasoline engine and electric motor to drive the vehicle but the to recharge the high-voltage battery, drivers plug the vehicle into a wall outlet or charging station.

Ford Hybrid Vehicles

What's The Difference Between a Hybrid and PHEV?

Hybrid Vehicles: feature a gas engine plus an electric motor, and switches between the two—or some combination of both—to optimize your drive. The gas engine and regenerative braking recharge the battery, which doesn’t need to be plugged in.

PHEV: Plug-in hybrid vehicles offer the best of both worlds. You can drive in electric mode while having the peace of mind of a gas-engine backup when you need it. They also feature convenient plug-in charging to extend your all-electric range.

Choosing Between PHEV and HEV

Fuel Efficiency

If you have a short commute and have access to a home charger, a PHEV may be a good option. If you have a long commute or don’t have access to a home charger, an HEV may be a better option.


Ford electric vehicles (EV) and plug-in hybrid EVs (PHEV) with MSRPs of $80,000 or less are currently eligible for federal tax credits. Taxpayers who purchase an eligible vehicle may qualify for a tax credit of up to $7,500.


If you need a vehicle with a long range, a PHEV may be a better option. If you need a vehicle with a lot of cargo space or towing capacity, an HEV may be a better option.
