Although it’s a bit of cheating to call the 2013 Ford Fusion Energi Hybrid the most economical midsize sedan in the market, it is nonetheless true that its 47 mpg for both types of driving (city and highway) is head and shoulders above EPA estimates for the 2013 versions of the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima and other cars in the class. That’s also more than the 39 mpg city and 43 mpg highway estimated for the Toyota Camry Hybrid. There is more to the new Fusion Hybrid than just mileage, even if it is essentially the same car as the conventional Fusion except for the hybrid engine combination.
Design-wise, the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid looks the same as your average Fusion sedan, which looks the same as the Ford Fusion Energi. It is one of the better-looking midsize cars, according to most reviewers; despite looking every bit like a midsize sedan, its grille and its lines make it stand out in this category among midsize cars. And it definitely looks better than the average hybrid vehicle, take the Toyota Prius for example, which has never won praise for its external appearance. The new Fusion’s interior legroom and headroom hasn’t changed much, but is still adequate enough to fit most adults inside. Safety equipment includes eight standard airbags, a rearview camera, blind spot monitors and parking sensors; these features and more were good enough to help the vehicle earn Top Safety Pick honors from the IIHS.
Under the hood, the 2013 Ford Fusion has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo with an electronic continuously variable transmission, or eCVT for better driving feel and additional power in front. And drivers also have the option of running on electric power exclusively. This would produce a top speed of 62 miles per hour and an all-electric driving range estimated between 20 to 28 miles. Pricing on the Fusion Hybrid starts at $27,995 upwards.

I think electric only driving mode of Fusion Energi is really something impressive. The less we burn oil and gas, the more greener the world will get.
