Plug-in Ford Fusion EPA Rated at 108 MPGe

13FusionEnergi_06
In the midst of a fuel-economy controversy involving hybrid versions of the Ford C-Max and Fusion comes a bit of good news for the blue oval brand. The plug-in version of the Fusion is EPA rated at 108 miles per gallon equivalent in the city. In highway and combined driving, the Fusion Engergi is rated at 92 and 100 MPGe, respectively.

Ford calls it the most fuel efficient sedan in America, and it bests hatchback competitors like the Toyota Prius Plug-in (95 MPGe combined) and the Chevy Volt (98 MPGe combined).

The Energi uses a version of the Fusion Hybrid's powertrain: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired with an electric motor and a continuously variable automatic transmission. It's quite a bit more expensive, however. The Fusion Hybrid, which is EPA rated at a controversial 47/47 mpg city/highway, starts at $27,995, including a $795 destination charge. Base SE Luxury versions of the Energi start at $39,495 and topline Titanium versions at $40,995, excluding any state or federal tax incentives.

When the Fusion Energi goes on sale later this month, it'll be the third plug-in Ford has recently introduced. It follows the Focus Electric and C-Max Energi.

Ford hasn't been very honest recently so really, should we trust Ford when they toot their own horn?
