Ford's Small-Car Sales Skyrocket for Best November in More than a Decade.

November marked Ford's best month of hybrid sales ever, with more than 6,000 gas-electric models finding new homes. Together with the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid, the C-MAX has helped the automaker capture 11 percent of the electrified vehicle market, with its share increasing more than fivefold in 2012 alone. Ford hopes to boost hybrid sales even more when the 2013 Ford Fusion Energi, another new plug-in hybrid model, is released early next year.

Featuring a high-voltage battery, an electric motor and a gas engine, the Fusion Energi will offer electric-only driving for short commutes before switching over to a gas-electric hybrid mode. Drivers will be able to charge the battery overnight using a conventional 120-volt outlet, or in less time with a special 240-volt outlet. By also using other fuel-saving technologies like regenerative braking, Ford estimates that the Fusion Energi will return more than 100 MPGe.

Inside, the Fusion Energi is packed with the same modern touches as the gas-only Fusion, including the available SYNC with MyFord Touch infotainment system, which incorporates a touchscreen and voice commands to control music, climate control, hands-free phone calls and navigation. For the Energi, a special MyFord Mobile app will bring additional functionality, including the ability to remotely monitor the battery charge, preheat or precool the vehicle, locate charging stations and schedule charging during cheaper off-peak hours.

"Aside from the charging port, it's very difficult to tell that the Fusion Energi is a plug-in hybrid, because it maintains the bold sedan styling of the gas-only Fusion," added Caliri. "Buyers get to take advantage of the advanced technology for incredible efficiency, but they can also still make a definitive statement on the road with an aggressive exterior design."
