2017 Fusion Energi Offers 610 Mile Range
What if you could drive from Napa Valley, California to Portland, Oregon without having to stop to fill up your gas tank? Wichita, Kansas to San Antonio, Texas? Columbus, Ohio to Birmingham, Alabama?
The 2017 Ford Fusion Energi is poised to make you have less stops during your road trip thanks to regenerative braking and plug-in hybrid technology. It’s 610-mile range is almost too good to believe.
The March 2016 Harris Poll of more than 1,000 U.S. adults also finds Americans believe the longest-range plug-in hybrid can go 261 miles – less than half the Fusion Energi’s range. This significant underestimation shows the disconnect between reality and what consumers believe.
“Plug-in hybrids are electric vehicles until you run down the battery,” said Wade Jackson, marketing manager for Ford Fusion, “then they work exactly like a conventional hybrid. Fusion Energi – with a full battery and a full tank of gas – can go from San Diego, through Los Angeles and all the way up to San Francisco, and still have up to 110 miles of range remaining.”
The 2017 Ford Fusion Energi has an EPA-estimated rating of 43 city/41 hwy/42 combined MPG, a 14 gallon tank and 21 miles all-electric range. Range calculation based on www.fueleconomy.gov. Actual mileage and range will vary.
