Torque Vectoring Control reacts to the road surface 100 times per second. (That’s 33 times faster than the blink of an eye).
Using this information, it balances the amount of power delivered to each of the two front wheels. This maximises grip and sharpens handling, helping you round corners and over undulations in the road.
An on-board trip computer gives you useful facts and figures about your mileage, fuel consumption, speed and the outside air temperature.
It also includes ‘distance to empty’: roughly how far you can go on the fuel left in the tank. This is particularly useful on long journeys, or if you know you’ll be driving somewhere remote.
Parking distance sensors at the front and rear of the vehicle help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles around you.
When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.
There’s also a visual warning, an indication of proximity to a stationary object shown either on the cluster or on the multi-function display depending on your vehicle spec.
The New Ford Tourneo Custom Plug-in Hybrid has two sources of power to help your passengers get where they need to be more efficiently than ever.
An advanced electric powertrain enables you to complete shorter trips with zero emissions. On Longer journeys the multiple award-winning 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine kicks in to ensure you can go as far as you want.
It’s technology designed to maximise efficiency without compromising on the reliability and flexibility you expect in a Tourneo.
The Plug-in Hybrid can be charged anywhere you have access to the mains. And once fully charged, you can drive over 30 miles (50 km) using electric power alone. That’s enough to complete most short city trips without using any fuel. When you’re low on power, the engine not only extends the range, but helps recharge the battery too.
The Tourneo also uses smart self-charging technology, such as regenerative braking, to send power back to the electric motor. Once sufficiently charged, you can switch back to electric only, helping you save money and reduce pollution.
The New Tourneo Custom Plug-in Hybrid maximises efficiency without compromising interior space, comfort or flexibility.
The rear seats can be moved into a variety of configurations to maximise leg room or luggage space. You can even create a conference-style seating arrangement for when your passengers need some space to talk. Premium fabrics throughout deliver exceptional levels of comfort, wherever you’re sitting. And meticulous attention to detail ensures a refined experience on every journey.
