Ford is the only American automaker to have a decent lineup of cars for the European market. Puma, for example, is a compact model that’s well-built and designed to appeal to European consumers. This entry-level SUV has a sleek design and pretty engaging handling that makes it one of the most desired models in its class. Ford Puma 2024 is expected to receive a new all-electric model.
Officials are still able to keep the details of the EV model a mystery at this stage. Except for the fact that it will be based on the same platform, we don’t know anything. This version may also feature a few exclusive styling features. Standard ICE models will continue to be produced without any major changes.
We expect that the all-electric model will be the most innovative for the coming year. The officials are still keeping most of the details secret. We don’t yet know anything about the drivetrain. We do know that the Ford Puma EV 2024 will be based on the same platform used by the standard model. This would be the B-Platform, which is the same as the one that supports the Fiesta. We also know the electric version will be manufactured in the same Romanian assembly.
Details about the drivetrain remain unknown. We can say the same for the rest, but we might assume there will be some styling changes. There could be a few details that emphasize the model’s electric design. The overall layout should not change much.
2024 Ford Puma Design
We don’t think there will be any major changes to the gas-powered standard model. We don’t think it’s time to refresh the current model, which has been around for some time. We expect the same design with a sleek profile, smooth lines, and many details taken directly from the Puma sports cars.
It’s the same with mechanics. The small crossover is based on the Fiesta platform but has a longer wheelbase and larger overall dimensions. This greatly impacts the comfort of the vehicle. The ride is smooth and the suspension is firm, making this car fun to drive despite its body style.
We also expect the interior of the 2024 Ford Puma to remain unchanged. We expect the same layout and a decent quality overall. The materials and fit are both good. Blue Oval managed to maintain a balance between classic and modern design.
It’s difficult to expect much passenger space, given the size of the vehicle and its class. The front seats have enough space and are comfortable, but the second row can be a bit tight. The second-row seats are easy to access, which is a positive.
The 2024 Ford Puma is expected to continue in the same manner, except for the all-electric model. Base models will have a 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces around 125 horsepower. It is paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. There is also an engine version that has a mild hybrid system and can produce 155 horsepower.
The performance-oriented ST is also available with a 1.5-liter motor and a maximum output of 200 horsepower. This model and the more powerful 1.0-liter variant come with a 6-speed transmission instead of an automatic gearbox.
2024 Ford Puma Release Date and Price
The Ford Puma 2024 is expected to arrive in the second half year. The all-electric version will likely arrive in 2024. The base models will continue to have a similar price starting at around PS20.500 on the UK market. Models like Nissan Juke and Nissan Qashqai are key competitors.
