2013 Ford Fusion Video

The redesigned 2013 Ford Fusion is all-new for the model year, featuring unique Euro-influenced styling. The new midsize Fusion will be sold nearly unchanged in Europe as the Ford Mondeo, according to Cars.com Industry Analyst Kelsey Mays. Its looks aren't the only thing that’s changed; the model no longer features a V-6 option but instead opts for five fuel-efficient four-cylinder engines, including a hybrid and Ford's first plug-in hybrid powertrain.

not 100m of range, 100mpge. Range will be less than Volt and Leaf- WAY less than Leaf.

An elegant design. Big problem is in the back seat. Rear headroom may be ok but the rear seats feel claustrophobic with the small windows. Why are designers all working so hard to reduce window glass area?

If you mean electric only range you might be right but I thought the elec only range was either more or comparable to the the Volt. I also read that it's supposed to have a 500 mile total range between the elec and gas engine. Up to 62mph in elec only mode. Also, the MPG on the gas engine I think is quite a bit higher than the Volt's.

Sheth,

You're correct. We confirmed with Ford it's 100 MPGe. An engineer estimated 100 miles' EV range at the auto-show preview last month. Ford has yet to release EV range for the Energi, but it won't be 100 miles.

per MT (and presumably Ford) elec range is 21miles.

Stand corrected. The Fusion elec only range is about 14 miles less than
Volt. But the huge mpg advantage after gas kicks in goes to Fusion. Not to mention the price I'm sure.
