Along with the standard and hybrid versions of the 2013 Fusion, Ford brought something completely different – for the mid-size segment, anyway – to the Detroit Auto Show this morning with the Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid. It's the cleanest of the trio and it shows that Ford is ready to introduce a big change to the competitive (and somewhat staid) mid-size class.

Ford says it expects the Fusion Energi to get better MPGe ratings than both the Chevrolet Volt (93 MPGe, EPA rating) and the Toyota Prius Plug In (112 MPGe, but that's on the European rating cycle). Ford won't say for certain – the Energi isn't due for another 8-12 months, after all – but the automaker is saying the plug-in should get "up to more than 100 MPGe." That's a convoluted way to say, "we think we win."

Ford isn't talking about all the details of this powertrain just yet, but we do know use the Fusion Hybrid's 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle engine at its core, matched with a lithium-ion battery. We'll have to wait until later to learn about charging times, battery size and all-EV range.

The 2013 Ford Fusion Energi is a plug-in hybrid aiming to be the most fuel-efficient midsize car in America. Arriving this fall, Fusion Energi is projected to deliver more miles per gallon equivalent than the Chevrolet Volt or Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid.

EPA has released the Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid rating and it's 108 MPGe in the city and 92 MPGe on the highway for an average of 100 MPGe combined.
