Earlier in the year, Ford gave prediction that their upcoming C-MAX Hybrid would be able to achieve 47 mpg thus becoming America’s most efficient hybrid utility. After recent testing by the EPA, the Blue Oval’s estimates were revealed to be dead on as the five door has been officially certified to average 47 mpg in the city. Perhaps more impressive is the Hybrid’s ability to average 47 mpg on the highway as well giving it a flat combined rating. With its new certification, the Ford has actually become America’s most fuel efficient hybrid utility, beating out the Toyota Prius V by 7 mpg.
“The all-new C-MAX Hybrid is a great symbol of how Ford has transformed into a fuel-economy and technology leader with 47 mpg across the board and a highway rating 7 mpg better than Toyota Prius v,” said Ford Vice President of Powertrain Engineering Joe Bakaj. Whether putting around town or cruising down the freeway, the C-MAX Hybrid is one thrifty people hauler. Like its brother, the C-Max Energi, the Hybrid uses a lithium-ion battery pack coupled with a gasoline engine to produce its motivation. Priced cheaper than the plug-in, the $25,995 utility is still eco-friendly and can travel up to 62 mph in full electric mode.
