2013 Ford Fusion Energi gets best fuel efficiency rating for US sedans(Read article summary)
2013 Ford Fusion Energi becomes America's most fuel-efficient sedan, with a rating of 108 MPGe in city driving, Ingram writes. At $39,495 in SE trim, the 2013 Ford Fusion Energi costs $350 more than the Chevy Volt.
Ford has announced official EPA mileage figures for its latest plug-in hybrid, the Fusion Energi.
Whether those figures will be enough to sway customers from the¬†less expensive Chevy Volt¬†is a different matter.¬†
At $39,495 in SE trim, the Fusion Energi costs $350 more than the Volt, and doesn't benefit from the full $7,500 federal tax incentive either, increasing the pricing gap.
Of course, the Fusion may be the better choice for people who need that fifth seat, and should be more¬†efficient¬†in hybrid mode too.
Buyers will no doubt be keen to see whether Ford's economy claims live up to promise, too--as the company faces lawsuits¬†over the gas mileage of the Fusion and C-Max hybrids.
