In addition to the Kuga mild-hybrid, hybrid and Kuga Plug-In Hybrid, which were revealed at the event, Ford announced the Fiesta EcoBoost Hybrid and Focus EcoBoost Hybrid, a pair of mild hybrids that join the Kuga, Transit, Transit Custom, Tourneo Custom, and newly revealed Puma in Ford’s mild-hybrid lineup. Ford also revealed the new Tourneo Custom Plug-In Hybrid, the Explorer Plug-In Hybrid, and the Transit Smart Energy Concept at the event.
