The Temperatures Are Getting Colder, The C-MAX is Getting Hotter

The 2013 Ford C-MAX, which launched in October, has been quite a hot seller. So much so that it earned itself the title of “fastest-selling hybrid ever.” In its first two months this red hot hybrid has sold 8,030 total units. That trumps the start of the Toyota Camry Hybrid which sold 7,300 units in its first two months when it first hit the road back in 2006.

Another impressive statistic is that Ford’s C-MAX Hybrid and C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid sold three times faster than both the Toyota Prius and Honda Insight combined when they launched in 2000. Ford’s electric vehicles sales in November actually turned out to be the best they’ve ever done and the great fuel efficiency that these hybrids offer is the reason why.

In addition to the huge sales numbers, the C-MAX hybrids have also been receiving extremely positive reviews from their owners. “Dealers are aware of this and are excited to take on the Prius” Group marketing manager, C.J. O’Donnell, said “Our customers also are excited to have a fresh hybrid option, with leading fuel economy that does not sacrifice driving fun, performance and technology – choices typically not offered with hybrids.”

At the end of the day fuel economy is the number one consideration that new car-buyers look for according to recent study by Moritz. During tough economic times, saving money at the pump is becoming much more a necessity. “C-MAX hybrids highlight Ford’s commitment to offer customers the power to choose leading fuel economy across our lineup”, says O’Donnell.
