2013 Ford Fusion Energi capable to deliver a 620-Mile range

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 18, 2013

Ford said that the 2013 Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid electric sedan is capable of travelling 21 miles on electric-only power and could achieve 620 miles on a full charge and full tank of gas, comparable to what a diesel engine can achieve. Ford has been slowly releasing information about the PHEV. So far, we know that the Fusion Energi has a rating of 100 MPGe combined, making it superior to both the Chevrolet Volt and Toyota Prius Plug-In.

However, it’s below the 115-MPGe Honda Accord Plug-In. The Fusion Energi offers 21 miles of battery-boosted power, making it better than all of its competitors except the Volt.

The Volt is rated for 38 miles of electric power. But the Fusion, as well as its C-Max Energi mechanical twin, has a 620-mile range on a full battery and tank of gas. This figure means that it can go 46 miles farther than the Accord, which has a rating of 574 miles. Of the plug-ins, the Fusion is the most powerful, producing 195 hp compared to the Volt’s output of 150 hp and the Pruis’ 134hp.

Honda hasn’t announced the performance output for the Accord PHEV yet. In addition, the Fusion Energi offers good value when compared to its rivals. It’s not as expensive as the Chevrolet and the Honda. It’s possible that the Ford model costs $6735 higher than the Toyota’s model that costs $32,760 (including destination charges). Notably, it could achieve nearly twice the EV range. The 2013 Ford Fusion Energi will arrive in dealerships in late winter to early spring of 2013.
