    The Future of Ford Everest: Will a Plug-in Hybrid Version Follow the Ranger PHEV?

    The recent launch of the Ford Ranger Plug-in Hybrid 2025 has sparked speculation that a PHEV version of the Ford Everest may be on the horizon. However, Ford Australia’s President and CEO, Andrew Birkic, has not yet confirmed whether the SUV will adopt plug-in hybrid technology.

    During a press conference about the Ranger PHEV, Birkic stated that there were no announcements regarding a Ford Everest Plug-in Hybrid at this time. However, he expressed satisfaction with the Everest’s performance, highlighting positive feedback from dealerships and sustained demand for the V6 models.

    The potential introduction of a Ford Everest Plug-in Hybrid would align with Ford’s global strategy to electrify their vehicle lineup. As demand for clean and 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 fully electric mode for short distances, reducing emissions and fuel consumption. When the battery is depleted, the vehicle seamlessly switches 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 seeking a more eco-friendly option without compromising performance or capability.
