While the market for green cars in general in the US he fell in 2014 with a 6.5 percent drop in sales, demand for electric vehicles and plug-ins actually jumped a healthy 28 percent. The Ford Fusion Energi plug-in was one of the winners in the segment with a rise of nearly 90 percent to 11,550 examples sold in the year.
To keep the ball rolling in the face of low gas prices and updated challengers entering the field, the Blue Oval is cutting $ 900 to the cost of both the Energi and Fusion Standard Hybrid to make them even more attractive to buyers . Monique Ford Brentley toldAutoblog that the reduction was “basically just to attract more customers and sales promotion.”
The Ford Fusion Hybrid is a hybrid powered version of gasoline and electricity half the size of Ford Fusion sedan developed by the Ford Motor Company, and US launched in March 2009 as a 2010 model year along with his twin hybrid Mercury Milan. The second generation Ford Fusion Hybrid, launched as a 2013 model year, went on sale in the US in October 2012. A plug-in hybrid Ford Fusion Energi version was released in the US in February 2013.
Cut each setting affects both versions equipped with electric motor of the merger for the 2016 model year, direct hire, and comes without removing standard equipment. By contrast, the Energi reportedly receive a new driving mode that activates EcoSelect additional regenerative braking and smoother acceleration. The price adjustment of $ 900 is only for these models and not available in versions with just an internal combustion engine which makes clear Ford wants to tempt buyers of green cars to this pair.
According direct Cars, models must go on sale in late 2015. The cheapest 2016 Fusion Hybrid S will cost $ 25.675 plus $ 825 destination in all of them, and about 2,016 Energi start at $ 33.900. Own pages Autoblog price for them show the same numbers (here and here). Direct Cars also predicts for the Blue Oval to keep most of the incentives in place even after adjustment.
Assuming that these figures do not change before actually sedans go on sale, price cut does a 2016 Energi less expensive than a 2015 Chevrolet Volt from $ 34,345 (plus $ 825 destination). The cost of the upgrade for the 2016 model Chevy is not yet announced.
