By Matt LeblancTalkSport – 19 Apr 2018 08:25:50In an age of electric vehicles and the promise of autonomous driving, it’s easy to see how a Ford truck could become a useful tool in your everyday life.
But while Ford is selling a range of electric service trucks as well as petrol and diesel, a lot of people still want to get their hands on a Ford service truck, and there’s a number of them available for sale online.
The most common model in the Ford service fleet is the E-Series, which is essentially a truck fitted with a range extender (RX) and electric motors.
The Ford E-150 and E-180 are also equipped with this feature.
The E-series is Ford’s largest vehicle line-up, with an estimated 4 million E-vehicles on the road today, and with the Ford Focus E and Focus E Plus, Ford has also set out to expand its range of fuel-efficient trucks.
The Ford Focus S, Focus S Plus and Focus Sport range from the 2,000kg-plus truck to the 4,500kg-and-up Range Rover Sport, while the Ford Expedition range is the equivalent of the Range Rover Discovery with a further 5,000km range.
The range extenders in the E and E Plus range are the only two that are fitted with either a petrol or diesel motor, which means you can drive a Ford Expedition or Range Rover from a petrol station in the UK to a petrol-powered station in Australia with just a few minutes of charging.
And there are still some options for electric service vehicles, such as the Ford Ranger, Ford Ranger EV and Ford Ranger F1 that have petrol- and diesel-powered versions, or the Ford Fiesta and Ford Fiesta ST.
However, as the range exteners are designed for plug-in vehicles, they can only drive the petrol and petrol-fueled versions, meaning you can’t use a Ford Ranger for fuel-saving purposes.
Ford Focus S and Focus S PLUS range from 1,900kg-up to 3,800kg- and upIn a move that’s sure to please electric enthusiasts, Ford is also offering the Focus S series of electric cars with the Range Rovers range extending to 4,800km and up.
Ford also recently announced the EMAX E, which has a range up to 5,800 kilometres and a range-extending electric motor.
But in a move to make its range extensors as versatile as possible, Ford recently launched the Ford Fusion E, a range extension to 3.8 tonnes, with a petrol engine, too.
This range extension range is fitted with the latest range extener technology, which includes an 8kg-tonne electric motor and an electric motor-drive system that delivers up to 400km/h.
Ford says that this range extensor will provide the maximum range available for Ford Fusion and Fusion E models, although the company doesn’t say what it means by the range extension.
This Range Extender Ford Fusion range extenser is fitted to a Ford Fusion SUV.

In terms of range extenstion, Ford Fusion’s range extentors include the Fusion E and Fusion SE range extenders, and they also have an 8,500km range extening electric motor (although the Fusion SE and Fusion Fusions have diesel versions).
The Ford Fusion EV range extencion is fitted alongside the Fusion EV.
