Article for Fusion Energi Forum.
Amidst the controversy over its 2013 C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid not achieving claimed fuel-economy in the real world, Ford just released mileage figures for its new 2013 Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid. Ford’s fifth electrified vehicle to launch in the past year boasts U.S. EPA estimates of 108 Miles Per U.S. Gallon Equivalent in the city, 92 on the highway and a total gas and electric range of 620 miles (998 kilometres) or 120 miles (193 kms) more than the 2014 Honda Accord hybrid (Transport Canada estimates are not in yet).

Apparently, the Fusion Energi can also drive up to 21 miles (34 kms) in electric-only mode.

Just remember, your mileage may vary…

If only - sounds too good to be true.

And actually, Consumer Reports apparently got 39MPG, not really close to the 47MPG touted as the EPA rating.

Mind you, many customers of the Fusion Hybrid seem to be getting better than the EPA ratings, so maybe Consumer Reports just has a heavy foot test cycle?

It looks like that was just the Ford Fusion Hybrid, not the Ford Fusion Energi (plug-in version of the hybrid), which should get at least a little better mileage because of the efficiency of plug-in energy.
