The EPA also certified Fusion Energi to deliver up to 92 MPGe highway and a combined 100 MPGe – figures that could potentially help save customers an estimated $6,850 in fuel costs compared with an average new car over the course of five years.
“The Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid is the exclamation point for Ford’s transformed lineup of fuel-efficiency leaders that now beats Toyota across the board,” said Raj Nair, group vice president, Global Product Development.
The Fusion Energi will go on sale early this year and is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine, a lithium-ion battery and an electric motor. Combined power output is up to 188hp.
