Ford C-Max Energi can go 21 miles on electricity alone

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.

Woodill Wildfire was a (short) dream come true

Oct 21 2014 7:09pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The photographed 1953 Woodill Wildfire Series II was one of the cars in the class that I was recently judging at the Santa Fe Concorso in New Mexico. Apparently it is the first confirmed factory built Wildfire of the 15 examples that ever left the factory; only nine are known to exist today. Most of the 285 remaining cars built were sold as kits. This car was also one of the three cars used in the movie Johnny Dark, which starred Tony Curtis playing the part of the design engineer. In the ...

Toca (Figuratively) Burns Down 2015 Hyundai Genesis for SEMA, Builds It Back Up Into a “Steel Phoenix”

Oct 21 2014 4:51pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

“How now, turbo Tau?” That, presumably, is the question Hyundai hopes show goers will ask when it pulls the wraps off of the Steel Phoenix at the upcoming 2014 SEMA Show. Conceived by Toca Marketing Group, the hopped-up Genesis with a bad-ass name features a twin-turbocharged version of Hyundai’s 5.0-liter Tau V-8 pumping out 600 horsepower. A 180-hp bump over the stock 2015 Genesis 5.0′s output isn’t something to sniff at, fo ...
