The North American based automaker Ford has recently announced that the 2013 C-Max Energi is the most fuel efficient plug-in hybrid in the United States, returning 108 MPGe.
According to the car manufacturer, the 2013 Ford C-Max Energi can return an EPA certified 108 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) in the city and 100 MPGe in the combined cycle, which means that customers who will choose this model will save almost 7,000 USD over five years in comparison to an average new car. Ford says that the 2013 C-Max Energi is more fuel efficient than the 2013 Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid and this will also be one of the cheapest plug-in hybrids in the United States.
“Ford is giving customers the power of choice for leading fuel economy regardless of what type of vehicle or powertrain technology they choose. With $5-per-gallon gasoline, C-MAX Energi customers essentially will pay $1.25 per gallon for the same distance traveled compared with average vehicles estimated to achieve 23 mpg”, said the chief nameplate engineer, C-Max Energi, John Davis.
The 2013 Ford C-Max Energi can be bought from 29,995 USD over-seas, including the delivery and destination fees after federal tax credit and this makes it one of the cheapest plug-in hybrids in the country. Ford says that besides the C-Max Energi, the company will also offer the C-Max Hybrid, which was rated at 47 mpg (city/highway/combined).
