Ford Explorer plug-in hybrid top speed tested on the Autobahn – Motorsports

For the first time Ford explorer It is currently sold in Europe as part of Blue Oval’s restructuring program for its European operations. And yes, this is the first time a large SUV (by European standards) has moved across the Atlantic to the Old World, and more importantly, it is only available as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV).

That said maximum speed Appropriate to run on the unlimited section of the German Autobahn, on YouTube AutoTopNL I listened to the call.

As you can see in the video above Ford Explorer PHEV I didn’t really have a hard time catching up with the early autobahn. This is mainly due to the huge output from the PHEV powertrain. The 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 petrol engine produces 350 horsepower (261 kW), and the electric motor adds another 100 horsepower (75 kW). In total, the Explorer PHEV produces up to 450 hp (335 kW) and 620 pound-force (840 Newton meters).

The driver who ran at the above speeds maximized Explorer’s digital speedometer, maximizing at 239 km / h (148.5 mph). At this speed, it’s important to note that the giant SUV is still configured and unhindered by wind and road noise-at least not so much.

The Explorer PHEV uses a 13.1 kWh lithium-ion battery. This allows you to travel up to 25 miles (40 km) on pure electrical energy, with a total fuel consumption of 3.4 liters per 100 km (69 miles per gallon).

Despite being electric, Explorer can carry luggage on two trailers weighing up to 5,511 pounds (2,500 kilograms). It can handle all road and weather conditions with seven selectable driving modes such as Normal, Sport, Towing and Snow.
