Even before the second generation Fusion sedan hits the streets, the midsize Ford is already breaking records. Most recently, the EPA certified each version of the 2013 model and their evaluation returned some rather impressive results. In Hybrid form, the Fusion can average up to 47 mpg which officially makes it America’s most fuel-efficient midsize sedan.
After testing, the 2013 Fusion Hybrid was EPA-certified with a 47/47/47 mpg rating for highway, city and combined driving. To put those numbers into prospective, the Toyota Camry Hybrid achieves a city rating of 43 mpg while a VW Passat TDI is EPA rated at 40 mpg on the highway. Numerous tricks like aerodynamic vents and an extended speed EV only mode which allows the Fusion to be driven up to 62 mph in utter silence contribute to the car’s exceptional economy.
“We are absolutely committed to class-leading fuel efficiency as a reason to buy Ford vehicles, with customers able to choose the fuel-efficient powertrain that best fits their lifestyle,” said Alan Mulally, Ford president and CEO.
