Ford C-Max Hybrid
Ford delivered its best hybrid sales quarter ever in the first quarter of 2013 with sales totaling 21,080 vehicles — marking the first time Ford has sold more than 20,000 hybrids in a quarter. Ford’s hybrid sales were up 324 percent nationally over 2012, achieving 16 percent share of the electrified vehicle market — up from 4 percent last year.
Ford Motor Co. says its new C-Max hybrids are gaining momentum with new customers and are luring more Toyota hybrid owners out of their cars and into Ford’s new hybrids.
The sticker says 47 mpg city, 47 mpg highway. Your mileage may vary, as they say. Mine sure did.
Ford Motor Co. is touting a new patented system on its hybrid vehicles, called EV+, that allows vehicles to learn frequent destinations and changes the way power is used to deliver more electric-only driving.
