Ford C-MAX Energi Plug-In Hybrid Delivers Expected 550-Mile Range. Nearly Double Electric-Only Range of Prius - Green Living Guy
Ford announced that the new C-MAX Energi Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) is expected to travel up to 550 miles on a single tank of gas, exceeding the range of both the Volt (379 mi) and the Prius PHEV (540 mi). In electric-only mode, the C-MAX Energi offers nearly twice the range of the Prius plug-in. In terms of distance, drivers of the C-MAX Energi could travel round-trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas or from Detroit to New York City on a single tank. The new Ford C-MAX Energi is expected to achieve more than 20 miles of electric-only range – nearly double the Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid – and a 550-mile overall range to become the first hybrid vehicle ever that can be driven from Sacramento to San Diego on a single tank of gas and make the average American commute without gasoline.
