The brand new Ford Fusion Energi Hybrid sedan is the latest of the plug-in hybrid that Ford has released. It’s said this puppy can go 620 miles before having to fuel up or charge the battery when the gas is fully loaded and the battery is completely charged up. It also gives owners the ability to drive up to 21 miles on just electricity alone which is triple that of its main competition.
With this unbelievable fuel range, the Fusion Energi can actually travel all the way from Virgina Beach up to Boston on a single tank of gas and a fully charged battery. The vehicles already has EPA-rated fuel economy numbers of 108 MPGe city, 92 MPGe highway and 100 MPGe combined with is 5 MPG-e better than the competition. It’s also estimated that over a 5 year span customers could save around $6,850 in fuel costs.
“Fusion Energi rounds out Ford’s list of available electrified vehicles perfectly by delivering another option to those who want to drive a hybrid without sacrificing comfort and convenience,” said Raj Nair, group vice president, Global Product Development. “In fact, Fusion Energi’s ability to drive up to 620 miles without stopping for gas or to charge a battery almost epitomizes convenience.”
Ford’s other vehicles also offer such impressive fuel efficiency that Ford is actually now the number 1 brand in customer satisfaction based on the fuel efficiency. This really took off for Ford in the 4rth quarter of 2012 when they sold in any 3 month period in the company’s history. In total 19,554 units were sold in the 4rth quarter. The Fusion Energi is Ford’s fifth electrified vehicle to launch over the past year.
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.

Ford is at it again, breaking records and saving you time and money with the all-new—hang in there, it’s a mouthful—108-MPGe C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid. This daring plug-in hybrid achieved an EPA-certified 620 mile driving range. Think of all the places you could go without have to stop at the pump to fill up your tank and empty your wallet. You could make it from New York to Detroit without stopping, or L.A. to Phoenix, or Chicago to Memphis, or even Orlando to Birmingham.
How is this possible? The C-MAX Energi does this by using a combination of the power stored in the vehicle’s superior lithium-ion battery and just one tank of gasoline, meaning you can go further longer. The Toyota Prius plug-in and the Chevy Volt simply do not—and cannot—compare to the C-MAX Energi. The Prius comes 80 miles short with a 540 mile range, and the Volt achieves even less with only 380 miles.
Even in pure electric mode, there is nothing that compares to the C-MAX Energi. It can get up to 21 miles just on electric power, which is more than is generally necessary to get to work and back, or to run to the grocery, or to take the kids to school, meaning drivers can do their daily commutes without spending a cent on gas. On the other hand, the Prius plug-in only gets 6 miles on all electric. That is not even a third of the range of the C-MAX Energi!
The C-MAX Energi does not, however, sacrifice quality for quantity. Believe it or not, this tiny yet powerful vehicle gets 195 hp (60 more than the Prius plug-in hybrid). And equipped with the latest in technology, such as the new hands-free lift gate and active park assist, the C-MAX Energi is the way to go.
