Is an Electrified Vehicle Right for You?

Ford Electrified Vehicle

Is owning an electrified vehicle (EV) from Ford on your radar? Then you have come to the right place. As the leading name in Denton and its surrounding areas on all things EV, the Bill Utter Ford team is ready and waiting to help bring you up to speed on all that these great vehicles have to offer.

But don't just take our word for it. Spend some time with us today learning about the benefits offered by making the jump to an EV, what the Ford lineup has to offer for those drivers in Denton who plan on going green and working toward a more sustainable future, and everything in between. We know that if you do this, it won't be long before you find yourself getting behind the wheel of a Ford EV and taking one of these eco-friendly offerings for a spin.

What Is an Electrified Vehicle?

The best place to kick this conversation off is by starting at the beginning and providing insight into what actually constitutes an EV. Simply put, an EV is any vehicle that utilizes a rechargeable, high-voltage battery to power an electric motor. We can also break down this concept into two further categorizations: Hybrid vehicles and purely electric vehicles.

In hybrid offerings, the electric motor works alongside an internal combustion or gas-powered engine to provide driving force. For those EVs that rely exclusively on electricity, there is no internal combustion engine and therefore no need for the consumption of gasoline.

Why Buy an Electrified Vehicle?

Now that you have a firm understanding of what exactly an EV is, it's time to talk about the main reasons why so many savvy drivers here in Denton have made the switch. The most popular reasons to buy an EV from Bill Utter Ford the next time you are in the market include:

  • No More Trips to the Pump – With gas prices constantly rising, owners of fully electric vehicles are enjoying the convenience that comes with charging their vehicles overnight at home via significantly more affordable residential electricity.
  • Save Even More with Tax Incentives – Thanks to local, state, and federal tax breaks, there are even more great opportunities to save money on already affordable Ford EVs.
  • Sustainability from Outlet to EV – As our infrastructure places an even greater priority on electric energy regenerated via wind, solar, and other renewable sources, it makes even more sense to switch to an eco-friendly vehicle that you can charge from the comfort of your home.
  • Less Emissions for a Better Future – When compared to the emissions generated by internal combustion engines, it is safe to say that Ford EVs provide a better alternative as we work toward a cleaner, healthier future.
  • An Abundance of Premium Performance – EVs that rely exclusively on electric motors can generate near instant torque, creating a unique performance experience that is sure to get your adrenaline pumping.
  • Going Green Feels Good – Is doing right by the planet and limiting your carbon footprint a top priority? Then there are few things you can do that are more satisfying than upgrading to a Ford EV.

Why Choose a Ford Electrified Vehicle Over the Competition?

Of course, when it comes to which EV deserves a spot in your front driveway or garage, the Ford lineup of EVs is clearly in a class of its own. Whether you find yourself smitten with the bold F-150 Lightning, the new take on an icon of the industry in the Mustang Mach-E, or the convenience and versatility of the Escape Hybrid and its Plug-In variant, the story never changes: Ford is always on the cutting edge of EVs and the eco-friendly future that they promote.

From this perspective, it should come as no surprise that Ford has earned countless industry accolades, including the Car and Driver 2021 EV of the Year and 2021 North American Utility of the Year for the Ford Mustang Mach-E in its first year of production. Adding in access to North America's largest public charging network via the BlueOval Charge Network further solidifies Ford's position at the top of the industry and as the name to beat in the EV marketplace.

Going a step further, here are some of the exciting features and benefits you can expect to enjoy from the various EVs found within the Ford model family:
