The new Ford S-MAX Hybrid and Galaxy Hybrid The new Ford S-MAX Hybrid is the first ever electrified version of the S-MAX sports activity vehicle, combining the refinement, efficiency and convenience of a full hybrid powertrain with a spacious and flexible interior that offers seating for up to seven occupants. Using innovative engineering, a fuel-efficient, petrol-electric powertrain is incorporated into the sleek and versatile S-MAX body without compromising practicality or the uniquely sporty driving experience, helping active families to reduce their CO2 emissions while enjoying more relaxing journeys. Electric power is intelligently deployed to support petrol engine fuel efficiency or deliver silent, pure-electric driving for short periods depending on the scenario. Battery charge is automatically replenished with no need for owners to plug into an external power source. Ford has also introduced a new Galaxy Hybrid version of the Galaxy people mover, powered by the same 190 PS petrol-electric powertrain as the S-MAX Hybrid for first-class travel and diesel-rivalling fuel efficiency.
