Fusion Energi Specs

The Ford Fusion Energi has been designed from the very start to be efficient. The 2013 Ford Fusion is a complete redesign of the previous Fusion model.

The Fusion Energi combines a high voltage battery with an electric motor and a gasoline engine. The lithium-ion battery pack provides enough power to operate in pure electric mode for short commutes, and thanks to the plug-in capability of the Fusion Energi, you can plug-in the vehicle to a standard 120 volt outlet to recharge the battery pack overnight. Or, with a 240-volt upgraded electric vehicle supply equipment charger, you can charge the battery in just a few hours.

TheĀ  Fusion Energi uses regenerative brakes while slowing the vehicle down to help capture kinetic energy and store it in the battery pack for later use.

The new 2013 Fusion Energi has a body that is 10% stronger than the last Fusion thanks to high strength steels.

    Hi, I am an electrician and I have a customer that is purchasing a ford fusion energi. He wants me to install an electrical outlet for the ford fusion energi to charge the vehicle in his garage. My question is what electrical specifications does this item require. How much amperage does it draw? He says the one he is purchasing requires 120 volts but I need to know the amperage if it needs it’s own circuit or not. He also said that they make a 240 volt conversion kit for it as well. Please tell me all the electrical specs for the 120 volt and the 240 volt charging systems. Thank you. Highest and best regards.

      I’m sure you’re long since done the wiring, but the J1772 standard allows for either 120 VAC or 240 VAC input to the vehicle.  The current rating for the circuit depends on the charger you get; the “convenience cord” works on any 15-amp circuit.

      As for me, I’m trying to find the complete electrical specs for the Ford charging systems.  Nobody seems to list them; the vehicle specs don’t even mention the charging port or “J1772”.

      Hi Jeff, He can plug the car into any NEMA 5-20 20A circuit, they just recommend that this circuit be dedicated because the car will can have an amperage draw up to the high end of the 80% allowed on the circuit. So if it is on a circuit that is shared with anything else the breaker could trip. Also, here is a twist. If you use any GFCI protected circuit you could have “nuisance tripping.” You will also find the following page very helpful http://electricvehicle.ieee.org/2013/09/29/safety-electric-vehicle-supply-equipment/
