Ford's C-MAX Energi Receives EPA Rating of 100+ MPGe
October 11, 2012 12:05 PM
The C-MAX Energi is expected to be America's cheapest and most fuel-efficient hybrid plug-in
passed up the Toyota Prius as the most fuel-efficient plug-in hybrid available in America.
The C-MAX Energi received an EPA rating of 108 miles-per-gallon equivalent (MPGe) city rating and 100 MPGe combined rating. This beats the Toyota Prius' combined rating by 5 MPGe.
The C-MAX Hybrid, which is grouped in with the C-MAX Energi as Ford's first hybrid-only line of vehicles, also
beats the Toyota Prius v
by up to 7 MPG. The C-MAX Hybrid received EPA rating of 47 MPG city and 47 MPG highway for a combined 47 MPG.
This high EPA rating places the C-MAX Energi in a special group of vehicles that have 100 MPGe or greater. This group, created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), also includes the Ford Focus Electric at 110 MPGe city and the Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid with an expected MPGe of over 100. Having several vehicles in this class definitely makes Ford's lineup more appealing.
Not only will the C-MAX Energi be America's most fuel efficient vehicle, it will also be the most affordable. It has a starting price of $29,995, but is eligible for the federal tax credit. The EPA label also noted that customers could save almost $7,000 in gas over the course of five years with the C-MAX Energi.
"Ford is giving customers the power of choice for
leading fuel economy
regardless of what type of vehicle or powertrain technology they choose," said John Davis, chief engineer of C-MAX Energi. "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."
The C-MAX Energi, due out this Fall, will also offer many of Ford's features like SYNC with MyFord Touch, MyFord Mobile, ECO Cruise and SmartGauge with EcoGuide.
