Ford Everest Plug-in Hybrid: Will the SUV Adopt PHEV Technology?

The 2025 Ford Ranger Plug-in Hybrid ute has been unveiled, leading many to believe that a PHEV version of the Ford Everest will follow suit. However, Ford Australia’s president and CEO, Andrew Birkic, has not confirmed whether the SUV will adopt the plug-in hybrid technology.

During a media briefing on the Ranger PHEV, Birkic stated that there were no announcements regarding a Ford Everest Plug-in Hybrid at this time. He did, however, express satisfaction with the performance of the Everest, noting the positive feedback from dealers and the sustained demand for V6 models.

The potential introduction of a Ford Everest Plug-in Hybrid would align with Ford’s global strategy to electrify its lineup. As the demand for clean, efficient vehicles continues to rise, plug-in hybrids offer a solution that combines the benefits of electric power with the convenience of a traditional combustion engine.

Plug-in hybrid technology allows vehicles to operate in an electric-only mode for short distances, reducing emissions and fuel consumption. When the battery charge is depleted, the vehicle switches seamlessly to the combustion engine, providing extended range and eliminating range anxiety.

While there is no official confirmation yet, the possibility of a Ford Everest Plug-in Hybrid presents an exciting prospect for SUV enthusiasts looking for a greener option without compromising on performance or capability.
