Automotive Editor -
The C-Max Energi needs to establish a reputation as the plug-in hybrid leader -- with a firm and early hold on its class, it can enjoy the kind of success Toyota has had with the traditional hybrid.


The 2013 model year brought the introduction of two new, high-efficiency models to Ford’s lineup: the C-Max hybrid and the C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid. According to Ford, the C-Max Energi hybrid uses its hybrid-drive system combined with its plug-in capabilities to produce a range of up to 500 miles on a single tank of gasoline.

For the 2013 model year, the C-Max Energi comes in just a single trim level: SEL. This vehicle is powered by a 2-liter Atkins-Cycle hybrid engine that produces 141 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque; an electronic continuously variable transmission delivers power to the front wheels. This combination nets the C-Max Energi 108 MPGe in the city and 92 MPGe on the highway.

The SEL trim level comes relatively well equipped, with features like keyless entry, heated seats, push-button start and leather seating. If the base SEL model isn’t enough, there are four additional optional packages to choose from. The Power Liftgate and Rear Park Aid Package adds rear parking sensors and a liftgate that opens effortlessly with the push of a button.

Next is the Premium Audio and Navigation Package, which adds a voice-controlled navigation system and a nine-speaker Sony audio system. The Hands-Free Technology Package comes with the power liftgate, a foot-activated liftgate sensor and a rearview camera. The Parking Technology Package, meanwhile, tosses in hands-free active park assist, which will locate a parallel parking space and park the C-Max with only minimal driver input.
