One of the greatest achievements that Ford could boast of at the current times is their creation of a hybrid plugin car. It is very apparent that issues on fuel costs as well clean energy sources has been influencing many car makers to shift to the electric or even just the hybrid types. The result now is a bigger range of option for those who are planning to buy a car that could be deemed as a wise investment. With the launch of the new 2013 Ford C-Max Energi Plug-In Hybrid, the Prius plugin hybrid and Chevy Volt finally has a worthy competitor.
Is this car really the perfect one for us? Many of those who will look more on what is under the hood would definitely see its real value. The appearance of the 2013 Ford C-Max Energi Plug-In Hybrid would give a hint of resemblance to the Ford Fiesta. This is understandable since it really has been patterned after it. The car has been designed to be high. On the driver’s seat, it would give lots of headroom due to its rising roofline. Passengers could also enjoy more head room and a legroom that is quite not available in many of Ford models.
In terms of performance, the powertrains of this car consists of a 2-liter, 4-cylinder gas engine and an electric motor that gives out 118 HP. The combined power of these two would yield a total of 188 HP which is fairly good for those who have regular driving needs. Many of us will be surprised by its MPGe rating which has been tested to be at 108 city/92 highway/100 combined. On city roads, it drives like a regular electric car which is quiet but responsive to acceleration pushes.
It takes at least 2 hours to charge the batteries of this car but it will be worth it if we will be running 18 miles or less per day. The distance between visits to the gas station could be increased and therefore more savings would be accumulated. This is why ownership of the new 2013 Ford C-Max Energi Plug-In Hybrid is being seen as easier and economical.
