Ford’s new Fusion Energi—its second plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and its third plug-in electric vehicle on the market—has an EPA-rated total range of up to 620 miles and an all-electric range of 21 miles.
In December 2012, the new PHEV received an EPA rating for fuel economy of up to to 108 MPGe city, 92 MPGe highway and 100 MPGe combined (2.2, 2.6 and 2.4 l/100km-equivalent, respectively). (Earlier post.)
Ford sold more hybrids in the fourth quarter of 2012 than in any other three-month period during the company’s entire history with 19,554 units sold. Fusion Energi is the Ford brand’s fifth electrified vehicle to launch in the past year.
The Fusion Energi has a electric-only speed of 85 mph (137 km/h)—23 mph more than Toyota Prius plug-in. Fusion Energi also delivers total horsepower of 195 (145 kW) with a fully charged battery.
