Fusion Energi vs C-max Energi

The Ford C-max Energi has really exploded since it’s October 2012 release. Not only did it outsell the Toyota Prius Plug-in in it’s first full month of sales, it also beat previous launch records for the Toyota Prius, Honda Odyssey and Toyota Camry Hybrid when they were first released!

The Fusion Energi is Ford’s second plug-in hybrid electric vehicle offering. The electric vehicle isn’t even available yet, but it’s already received a host of awards including the Green Car of the Year and the Connected Car of the Year. It has also received one of the highest EPA ratings of any plug-in hybrid vehicle – it’s rated at 108 MPGe in the city!

There are some skeptics that say the hybrid market can’t handle too many vehicle offerings, or that the target market is young hipsters who want a crossover type vehicle like the C-max Energi more than they want a family sedan like the Fusion Energi. Either way you slice it, the Fusion Energi is shaping up to be a market shaker.

Ford will be officially releasing some more details on the Fusion Energi at the upcoming North American International Auto Show later this month. To stay up to date on what’s happening with the Ford Fusion Energi, head over to the forum and say hello! I’ll see you there.
