Ford Energi Could Make Plug-in Hybrid Mainstream
Ford is proudly showing off its next-generation Fusion, touting that it not only will have a hybrid version, but also a plug-in version that is expected to top the Chevrolet Volt’s mileage.
“Our vision for Fusion was clear: Deliver the very best of what One Ford stands for,” said Derrick Kuzak, group vice president of Global Product Development. “We brought our global teams together around a blank slate with the charge to develop a midsize car with groundbreaking design and jaw-dropping fuel economy — one that featured technologies to help make our customers safer and better drivers. This car is the result.”
Final EPA ratings aren’t available yet, but Ford is shooting for its Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid to be the most fuel-efficient midsize car in the world. Ford expects it will be rated at more than 100 MPGe. The “e” is the mile-per-gallon equivalency metric for electrified vehicles.\
