A seguito di un investimento di 42 milioni di euro nello stabilimento spagnolo di Valencia, Ford Europe è pronta a lanciare le sue multispazio in declinazione ibrida.

La base tecnica è rappresentata dal 4 cilindri da 2.5 litri a ciclo Atkinsons che abbinato all'unità elettrica ed al cambio CVT, eroga complessivamente 225 CV e 210 Nm di coppia. 

La batteria è installata sul pavimento del veicolo per evitare di ridurre lo spazio interno o il bagagliaio. L'S-Max Hybrid sarà disponibile in una versione a cinque e sette posti, mentre il Galaxy Hybrid avrà sette posti di serie.

Saranno inoltre dotati di un sistema di frenata rigenerativa che consente di catturare fino al 90% dell'energia normalmente persa durante la frenata. Avranno anche l'interfaccia SmartGauge per monitorare il consumo di carburante ed energia.






S-MAX Hybrid









Galaxy Hybrid










Press Release:


  • New S-MAX Hybrid – the first electrified S-MAX sports activity vehicle – offers seven-seat practicality and full hybrid petrol-electric convenience to support active lifestyles
  • New offering reduces CO2 by more than 10 per cent compared to diesel, offers full S‑MAX flexibility and space, and pure-electric driving capability with no charging cables  
  • Ford also launches new Galaxy Hybrid people mover with full hybrid powertrain for first class refinement, diesel-rivalling fuel efficiency and pure-electric driving capability

COLOGNE, Germany, Feb. 9, 2021 – The new Ford S-MAX Hybrid sports activity vehicle offering seven seats alongside the refinement, efficiency and convenience of a full hybrid powertrain is now available to order for customers across Europe, Ford today announced.

Using innovative engineering to incorporate a fuel-efficient, petrol-electric powertrain into the sleek and versatile S-MAX body without compromising space, flexibility or the uniquely sporty driving experience, the new S‑MAX Hybrid reduces CO2 emissions by more than 10 per cent (WLTP) when compared with the equivalent EcoBlue diesel powertrain. 1

A combination of 2.5-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine, 1.1 kWh lithium-ion battery, electric motor and the latest generation of Ford’s power-split transmission enables an effortless driving and ownership experience that can help 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 by the petrol engine and by using regenerative charging technology when coasting or braking. With no need for owners to plug into an external power source, S-MAX Hybrid is designed to seamlessly fit into family life – always ready to deliver an electrified driving experience regardless of unpredictable schedules.

The stylish S-MAX Hybrid continues to blend sporty exterior styling with the practicality and flexibility of a people mover. Easily configurable seating and load space combinations deliver up to 2,200 litres of load capacity behind the first row of seats. 2 Towing capacity from 1,560 kg to 1,750 kg depending on variant can support leisure activities. 3

“S-MAX is the original sports activity vehicle, and now brings even more appeal for a new generation of customers with pure-electric driving capability for the first time,” said Roelant de Waard, general manager, Passenger Vehicles, Ford of Europe. “From a sporty, car-like driving experience to seats that fold flat at the push of a button, innovations that fit perfectly into family life have always been a big part of the S-MAX appeal. That makes the efficient and refined new hybrid powertrain a natural addition to the line-up.”

Ford is also offering for the first time a full hybrid variant of the Galaxy seven-seat people mover. The new Galaxy Hybrid utilises the same sophisticated petrol-electric powertrain as S‑MAX Hybrid for diesel-rivalling fuel efficiency and optimised driving refinement. 

Electric power without the cables

The new S-MAX Hybrid can continue to offer all the space and flexibility of existing S-MAX models in both five- and seven-seat variants by integrating its 60-cell lithium-ion battery within a crash absorbent, waterproof structure beneath the floor of the rear luggage space.

The 1.1 kWh battery pack uses a liquid cooling system that allows the battery cells to be packaged closely together for greater space efficiency. A specially designed twin-exit exhaust system is routed around the battery to help accommodate its low position for maximum practicality. The configuration enables S-MAX Hybrid to accept loads up to almost 1 metre tall and more than 1 metre wide between the rear wheel houses. Even with all seven seats in place there is 285 litres of luggage space available. 2

Electric power helps deliver the most refined S-MAX driving experience yet. Regenerative braking technology captures up to 90 per cent of the energy normally lost during braking to help charge the battery. Power is sent to an electric motor that can drive the front wheels on its own to pull away silently from a standstill. The motor can also deliver pure-electric driving for short periods, for ultimate refinement and zero-emission driving particularly in urban environments. The battery’s liquid cooling system eliminates the need for a cooling fan, helping further reduce noise levels inside the cabin.

In addition, the electric motor works alongside the petrol engine to deliver from 6.4 l/100 km fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions from 146-147 g/km WLTP, 4 making S-MAX Hybrid a compelling alternative to Ford’s EcoBlue diesel powertrains.

The 190 PS powertrain delivers 0‑100 km/h acceleration in 9.8 seconds. Smooth, linear acceleration complements S-MAX’s inherently sporty character and is supported by a redesigned motor-generator controller that seamlessly switches between pure-electric, hybrid and petrol power.

The full hybrid model’s Ford-developed power-split transmission also features a simulated gear-shift function to further heighten the sporty driving experience. The system automatically adjusts engine rpm as the vehicle’s speed changes for greater driver engagement.

Gear selection is controlled using a stylish and ergonomic rotary gear shift dial that features an additional mode for maximising engine braking when towing or descending steep slopes, for more comfortable driving and maximum energy recuperation. The advanced powertrain also enables towing capacity of up to 1,750 kg for the S-MAX Hybrid five-seat variant and 1,560 kg for the seven-seat variant. 3

Technology to take the stress out of driving

Intuitive features help drivers monitor and improve their fuel and energy efficiency using interfaces for the available 10-inch digital instrument display. Brake Coach encourages gradual braking to help return more energy to the battery, and EV Coach helps drivers understand when they are using electric or hybrid power.

Each S-MAX Hybrid occupant can enjoy connectivity on the move via the standard FordPass Connect modem that provides WiFi for up to 10 devices, 5 and allows drivers to plan faster, less stressful journeys with Live Traffic updates for the navigation system. 6

In addition, FordPass Connect enables remote features including Door Lock Unlock, Vehicle Status and Vehicle Locator via the FordPass mobile app, 7 as well as Ford’s sophisticated Local Hazard Information. The technology can inform drivers of a hazardous situation on the road ahead, even if the incident is not visible due to a bend in the road or other vehicles. 8

Making long journeys more comfortable for driver and front passenger, 18-way adjustable seats available for Trend and Titanium variants have the seal of approval from the leading spinal health organisation Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V. (the Campaign for Healthier Backs). The S‑MAX Vignale Hybrid features heated and cooled, 10-way-adjustable, driver and front passenger seats with massage function.

All three second-row seats feature Isofix points for securely fitting child safety seats, and Easy Fold Seats for the second and third rows make it simple to maximise load space by individually folding them flat using a push-button control panel in the boot space. Available hands-free tailgate technology also makes it easy to access the boot space while carrying grocery bags, packages or toddlers.

Galaxy Hybrid offers first class travel

The new Ford Galaxy Hybrid is also now available to order, powered by the same 190 PS petrol-electric powertrain as the S-MAX Hybrid.

Offering first class travel for seven occupants as standard, the Galaxy Hybrid people mover is available as Trend, Titanium and V-Line variants that deliver fuel efficiency from 6.4-6.5 l/100 km, CO2 emissions from 148-149 g/km WLTP, and 0‑100 km/h acceleration in 10.0 seconds. 3

Like the S-MAX Hybrid, the spacious Galaxy Hybrid continues to offer the full practicality of the rest of the Galaxy line-up, including more than 1 metre of head room for first- and second-row passengers, 2,339 litres of cargo volume behind the first row of seats and 300 litres cargo volume with all seven seats in place. 2

“Our new S-MAX Hybrid and Galaxy Hybrid are just two of 17 electrified vehicles Ford is introducing for customers in Europe by the end of this year,” de Waard said. “We’re offering a range of electrified powertrains from mild hybrid to all-electric, meaning every customer can find the right model to suit their lifestyle.”

S-MAX Hybrid and Galaxy Hybrid and their lithium-ion battery packs are assembled at the company’s manufacturing facility in Valencia, Spain.

Penso continueranno a vederli almeno per altri 3/4 anni

Probabile, il facelift è abbastanza recente, mi sorprende però l'investimento dato che li ritengono poco profittevoli, per questo li eliminano. In più hanno L'Explorer PHEV 7 posti in arrivo in Europa. Vabbè, evidentemente c'è più mercato di quanto pensassi, o i risparmi sulle multe europee per la CO2 compensano l'investimento.

Penso che hanno piu mercato queste due che manco l’Explorer... il suvvone entra troppo in diretta concorrenza con tedeschi e inglesi e farà la fine dell’Edge
