Preston Ford has not been able to keep the Ford Energi vehicles on the lot! Even our sales consultants are loving these awesome vehicles! Three of our sales consultants have bought the 2013 Ford Fusion Energi and one of our sales consultants has bought the C-Max Energi! These two cars are giving people in Salisbury, Maryland, Dover, Delaware, and Easton, Maryland something to talk about! They both get impressive gas mileage and not to mention that they are eco-friendly!
The C-Max Energi has advanced powertrain which includes a 2.0L I-4 Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine with an electric motor to generate 188 total system horsepower, which delivers the responsive power you want when you need it. The C-Max Energi plug in hybrid model has the best combined MPGe with an EPA estimate 108 city/92hwy/100 combined MPGe. MPGe is the EPA equivalent measure of gasoline fuel efficiency for electric mode operation. The Ford C-Max Energi also comes with an intelligent access with push-button start. You can unlock your C-Max without even having to take your keys out of your pocket or your purse. All you have to do is press your finger on the door handle to open the door. When you have entered the vehicle all you have to do is hold down the brake pedal and press the power button. Your C-Max Energi will then start and you are ready to drive to your destination! This feature is standard on the C-Max SEL Hybrid and the C-Max Energi. Also featured on the C-Max is SmartGauge with EcoGuide, this is an innovative cluster that provides real time information to help you get the most efficiency from your Energi vehicle. The SmartGauge features a “MyView” screen so drivers can customize screens to their liking. A screen such as Brake Coach helps you maximize your vehicle’s efficiency. The screens include Enlighten, Empower, and Engage and explains your options within each. You can also access your MyFord Touch screens using the next-generation SmartGauge.
The Ford Fusion Energi like the C-Max Energi also has a 2.0L Atkinson Cycle I-4 Engine and Electric Motor and next-generation SmartGauge with EcoGuide. Another feature you can get on the Fusion Energi is SYNC with MyFord Touch as well as a 10-way power driver seat with 3 memory settings. It also can get an estimated 108 mpg city and 92 mpg highway! The Fusion Energi has a mode called EV mode. When operating in EV Mode the Fusion Energi is down 70 horsepower compared with hybrid mode, the decrease is masked by the electric motor’s immediately available torque and good accelerator-pedal response, which makes launches from rest feel very quick. The Fusion Energi plug in can do a full tilt acceleration run without deciding on its own switch on the internal combustion engine. When you have selected EV mode with a button on the center console the car will heed your command unless you hold the pedal to the floor and keep it there. A great feature standard on the Fusion Energi is the MyFord Mobile. This app lets you monitor and schedule the charging of your Fusion Energi from anywhere in order to help you maximize your range. It can give you remote charging status updates and can check charge levels and available range. It can also provide you with the location of your vehicle if you are not in it, where you can find the nearest charging stations, and the most efficient route to get there. The standard 120V convenience charge cord allows you to fully charge your Fusion Energi in about 7 hours! Plug your vehicle in when you get home from work and let it charge overnight, by the time you get up in the morning your vehicle will be charged and ready to go!
Available for both the C-Max Energi and Fusion Energi is the 240-Volt charging station. Along with this charging station comes installation services from AeroVironment. If you decide to have a unit installed an AeroVironment affiliated electrician will perform an electrical audit and then install the 240-volt charging station. The electrician that comes to install the system will handle everything including securing the required permits. The unit can also be plugged into a 240-volt outlet for nonpermanent installation, easy removal or replacement.
The best part about these two vehicles is that you can go up to 65 mph and run on electric! Once you go over 65 mph then you will run on gas hybrid! Gas hybrid is also extrememly fuel effecient which is why these vehicles are so popular right now! You can go for 22 straight miles on electric! These two vehicles are some of the most efficient vehicles you can get! At Preston Ford we have just ordered 19 new energi vehicles! With an inventory of Energi vehicles that large, you are guaranteed to find the Fusion Energi or C-Max Energi that fits your budget and needs!
