Charging and Efficiency
According to the U.S. EPA, the Escape PHEV is rated at 105 MPGe combined / 40 MPG combined with a full electric range of 37 miles. Charging the Escape from empty using a standard household 110-volt outlet took about nine hours; a Level 2 charger would complete the same task in about 2.5 hours. During our time with the Escape Hybrid, plugging in the vehicle into a household outlet every evening meant we would awaken each day to a fully charged Escape.
