Derrick Kuzak, Ford's group vice president, Global Product Development, said that the 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid offers a real choice in the market for customers who want a vehicle that makes a statement about who they are and is a reflection of their ideals too.

He added that this hybrid also has several advanced safety features as well as all the amenities and modern design of a true luxury sedan. Powering the car is a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle I-4 hybrid engine, which produces a combined 191hp.

Lincoln said that its car's nearest rival, the 2010 Lexus HS 250h, can hit just 25 mph in battery-only mode while the MKZ Hybrid can go up to 47 mph.

In addition, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid's projected fuel economy exceeds the Lexus HS 250h by 6 mpg. Kuzak said that the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid has everything that customers want in a midsize luxury sedan, plus unsurpassed fuel economy.

He added that Lincoln's engineers made sure that the hybrid electric motor and engine complement each other in a way that shows the truly refined driving experience that is synonymous with the Lincoln name.
