, Automotive Editor -
The Ford Fusion Energi sends a strong product message: loads of useful technology and outstanding efficiency in car with room for the family. It just might be a game-changer in the highly competitive midsize sedan market.

Introduction

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.

How efficient is the Focus Energi? At 100 MPGe in combined city and highway driving, it's the most fuel efficient midsize car in the world. (MPGe is the official EPA miles-per-gallon equivalency for electric vehicles.) To manage your plug-in driving experience, the Energi comes with a mobile app that lets you monitor and schedule charging from anywhere, gives you directions to the nearest charging station, estimates CO2 emissions, and provides gas-saving tips based on your driving style.

The Energi comes in two trim levels: upscale SE and top-of-the-line Titanium, both with 10-way power leather seats. The SE is equipped with a six-speaker stereo/CD/MP3 sound system, Ford's Sync voice command system, and MyFord Touch with customizable touchscreen control panel. The Titanium receives a Sony 12-speaker sound system with HD radio, keyless entry, remote start, push-button start, and a reverse sensing system with rearview camera.

The 2013 Energi features a host of technology never before offered on Fusion models. The Luxury Driver Assist package offers advancements such as blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist. There's also a Technology package with a revised navigation system, automated parallel parking system, and adaptive cruise control with collision warning and brake intervention.
