2013 Ford Fusion Energi rated by EPA at 108 MPGe

Article by Christian A., on January 10, 2013

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has certified the 2013 Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid to return up to 108 MPGe. This makes the recently voted Green Car of the Year as the most fuel-efficient sedan in the U.S. Ford is relying on the Fusion Energi, its fifth electrified vehicle to have its launch in the past year, to hasten the automaker’s record-breaking hybrid sales rate.

In fact, Ford had its highest monthly hybrid sales month ever last November. Ford believes that there will be a higher demand for its frugal models. J.D. Power currently considers Ford to be No. 1 in fuel economy customer satisfaction. It now surpasses Toyota in terms of efficiency in every segment where their cars are in rivalry. In addition, the EPA has certified Fusion Energi to produce up to 92 MPGe highway and a combined 100 MPGe.

These mean that customers could save about $6,850 in fuel costs compared with an average new car in over five years. Raj Nair, group vice president, Global Product Development, said that the Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid is the “exclamation point” for Ford’s altered lineup of fuel-efficiency topnotchers that now exceeds Toyota across the board. Fusion Energi now offers additional value with its advanced technologies that are meant to help attract novice and pro hybrid owners.

These represent ways where it has surpassed the Toyota Prius plug-in. For instance, SmartGauge with EcoGuide offers in-vehicle customizable displays, which include instant fuel economy readings and coaching functions so that drivers can learn how to optimize their fuel efficiency.

SYNC with MyFord Touch provides numerous ways (such as voice commands) for customers to be able to manage their phone, including the navigation, entertainment and climate functions. It offers more options for owners of plug-in hybrids and all-electric models so that they can monitor data such as battery state of charge.
