Changan Ford shows first PHEV in China
Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Changan Ford displays its Mondeo PHEV version at Auto Guangzhou 2017, which is Changan Ford’s first PHEV model and the first mainstream model enjoying subsidies and credits among all joint-venture middle-size vehicles.
The model will be put into production at the beginning of next year. All models under Changan Ford brand will provide electric versions by 2025.
The energy-saving Mondeo PHEV model uses one button to provide all shift experience with word of “EV Auto/EV Now/EV Later” rather than “EV/HEV/SPORT” on general PHEV models. Besides, leaf image on the model intuitively expresses the current energy-saving conditions with longer leaf representing more saving energies. The model also uses the new ternary lithium batteries providing cruise mileage of 52KM with pure electric conditions and warranty of 160,000KM in 8 years.
The model uses 2.0L Atkinson cycle engine and eCVT, similar to other Mondeo HEV versions. Customers may refer to battery condition, driving mileages and charging conditions on mobile phones by loading “Ford School” Internet applications, as well as searching for public charging posts.
In fact, Ford has slowed down its progress in releasing new models in China since the “1515 strategy”. Currently, Changan Ford is making foundation in brand sales and system construction to prepare for oncoming new models’ release. Electrification and Internet-connected economy bring new opportunity for Changan Ford, which is striving to establish a stylish and pluralistic brand image for Chinese young consumers.
