Ford's popular Fusion midsize sedan has been thoroughly redesigned for 2013, and the model range now includes a plug-in hybrid known as the Fusion Energi. Like the regular Fusion hybrid, the Energi is powered by a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine supplemented by an electric motor, a combination that delivers 188 horsepower.
The Energi does its hybrid brother one better with plug-in technology that allows drivers to recharge the battery pack on a standard household outlet. Fully charged, the Energi can travel up to 21 miles using electric power only. After that, the gas-electric hybrid system takes over. With a full tank of gas and fully charged battery, the sedan can go 620 miles before refueling.Read more »
The Fusion Energi comes standard in upscale SE trim, which includes more equipment than non-Energi SE models. Every Fusion Energi has: heated leather seats with 10-way power and driver memory; an AM/FM stereo with CD player, MP3 capability, and six speakers; Ford's Sync voice command system; special mobile apps; and the latest generation of MyFord Touch with a customizable touchscreen control panel.
Beyond this, Ford offers the Luxury Driver Assist package, which includes automatic high-beam control, a 110-volt power outlet, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist. There's also an optional Technology package that adds a navigation system, automated parallel parking system, and adaptive cruise control with collision warning and brake intervention.
The Energi Titanium is as well-equipped as any Ford you can buy, and yet retains the excellent efficiency of a plug-in. Additional standard equipment includes a 12-speaker Sony audio system with HD radio, keyless entry, push-button start, remote start and a reverse sensing system with rearview camera. The SE's optional Luxury Driver Assist and Technology packages are also available on the Titanium. To further personalize this top-of-line model, you can select 19-inch wheels, a sunroof and special paint colors.
