Ford Brags about C-Max Energi

Ford is taking the time out of its schedule to brag about its C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid. The vehicle has an EPA rating of 100 MPGe combined, with 108 MPGe in the city and 92 MPGe on the Highway. The vehicle can travel up to 620 miles on a single tank of fuel and a fully charged battery.

Ford says that's 80 miles further than the competing Toyota Prius plug-in. The Energi is also able to travel 21 miles on electric power alone, which is nearly 3 times the electric only range of the Toyota, at up to 85 MPH. The vehicle is also the cheapest plug-in hybrid on the market according to Ford.

The Energi has a sticker price of $29,995 after the federal tax credit. The Energi has 195 net system horsepower when the battery is fully charged. That gives an advantage over the Toyota of 60 Porsche power. 620 miles on a single tank of fuel is a long way indeed.
