What Ford PHEV's are capable of, 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid charging a Tesla with on board Generator

For Science: Fuel consumption of the 7.2 kW Pro Power Onboard generator in the 2021 Ford F-150 hybrid - EV Pulse
Wow - that is pretty cool. I had never even thought of using the onboard generator that way. It could be used as an emergency generator for the house as well if you have a cutoff switch installed.

Hopefully the new Ranger will have this as well. This would be a killer feature.

Its interesting the direction Ford took with the F-150 Hybrid. It has a smaller 1.5-kWh lithium-ion battery tucked under the bed. The battery may seem a bit small for a vehicle of this size, but Ford chose it because it's easy to package and less costly than larger packs, and its weight won't considerably impact the all-important towing and payload capacities. 47Hp Electric motor netting a 4MPG fuel economy improvement and will travel only 10 miles on a charge. The electric motor is mounted between the motor and transmission

There will be a full EV F 150 that will travel 300 miles on a charge.

On a full tank of gas the F 150 7.2 kW generator will supply power for 32 hours.

The F-150 hybrid is not a plug-in hybrid. There is no charging from an electrical grid and it can not go anywhere near 10 miles on battery power alone.

With a hybrid vehicle (not the plug-in hybrid variety) 100% of its energy is derived from gasoline. It just uses the gasoline more efficiently by recapturing kinetic energy during braking and while going down hills and other tricks.

The next generation Ranger will have a plug-in hybrid power train as an option.

Won’t give us diesel. That’s just wrong 😑
I believe the tree huggers don't understand the modern diesels and are against them. Ford may be swayed by that attitude to not produce it for the states

I disagree. All the "tree huggers", as you like to call them, that I know would prefer a diesel over a gas engine, if given only those two options, just purely based on it's higher energy efficiency. Myself included.

I think the reasoning is just purely the cost and expense, both to Ford on design, development, implementation, and government regulations, and to the consumer with initial vehicle cost and higher price of fuel. Just look at the cost of the diesel option on the Colorado, Gladiator, and F-150. For most companies, people, and product types, the higher cost ends up to not outweighing the increase in efficiency. Not all obviously, but most.

Not me--the particulate problem seems to be unsolvable and worse than previously assumed. Getting off ICEs entirely seems like a better path forward than trying to fix diesels.

Also, the efficiency gains relatively to gas engines have really been eaten away by the pollution controls. Maybe with enough R&D you could get that back, but why bother at this point in the game?

Escape PHEV was delayed till January 2021 over possible high Voltage Battery fire. Not confident inspiring.

The Escape PHEV packs a 14.4-kilowatt-hour battery that should provide 37 miles of electric range on a full charge, which takes 3.3 hours on a 240-volt Level 2 charger. Level 1 110 Volt charger 10 to 11 hours.

At least they found out the issue before it left the factory. I'd say that's pretty confidence inspiring actually. There are plenty of unforeseen design issues that come up with something new. That's what testing is for, to find and address those issues. The only problem here is that it caused a delay, the news ran with it, and now everyone knows. Most of the time it's just an internal find, fix, and resume.

Feb 25, 2021 MSN article highlights

The plug-in hybrid system hasn't been used before on a production model and is rumored to combine a turbocharged 2.3-liter gasoline engine with an electric

The Ranger’s equivalent SUV version, the Everest, is also expected to utilize the same PHEV powertrain, which could enable both models to have an average fuel consumption of just three liters / 100 km (78.4 miles per gallon),

T he new Ranger and Everest are not the only upcoming Fords to get a plug as there are signs the aforementioned Bronco will also be electrified.
