Ford Sets Annual Hybrid Sales Record in Just Five Months

2013 Ford C-Max HybridThe battle for the hybrid vehicle sales crown is beginning to heat up, and Ford is looking to knock Toyota from its throne.  Thanks to an impressive consumer response the Ford C-MAX and Fusion Hybrid, Ford is shattering its hybrid sales records across the board.

Ford destroyed its monthly hybrid sales record with 8,481 in April.  The record April brought Ford’s total annual hybrid sales to 29,561 units, and puts the automaker on track to beat its annual record of 35,496 units in just five months.

“We’re turning, conquesting and growing our sales the fastest in the largest hybrid markets in the country,” said Erich Merkle, Ford U.S. sales analyst, in a phone interview with Bloomberg.com.

Ford’s share of hybrid sales in April rose to 18 percent, which is a 15 percent increase over the same month last year.  Ford now holds the second largest share of hybrid vehicles sales. The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid led the charge with a fivefold increase in sales in April, totaling 3,989 units sold.

Two Ford Models Named Best Green Cars of 2013

Ford Focus ElectricJust in time for Earth Day, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com has named the 10 Best Green Cars of 2013.  With fuel economy taking the top consideration spot for many car buyers, eco-friendly cars face fierce competition. However strong the competition may be, Ford still fared better than most, with two Ford models earning a spot on this list.

The first Ford on the list is the all-new 2013 Ford C-Max Energi.  The C-Max Energi is the most affordable plug-in hybrid on the road and offers an all-electric range of 21 miles.  The hatchback returnes an EPA-estimate fuel economy of 108 MPGe City and 92 MPGe highway and was praised by KBB.com for being one of the few EVs that can be fun to drive.

The 2013 Ford Focus Electric also earned a spot on Kelley Blue Book’s list, thanks to an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 110 MPGe city/99 MPGe highway/105 MPGe combined and its 76 mile range.  The Focus Electric has a leg up on the competition, thanks to its combination of award-winning Ford Focus style with an electric motor.

2013 Ford C-MAX Energi Achieves 620-Mile Range

EPA figures were recently released for the 2013 Ford C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid, and the numbers shattered what even Ford had estimated the C-MAX would return.

The 2013 C-MAX Energi has an EPA-rated 620-mile overall range and a 21-mile electric range.  The 620-mile overall range is an impressive 70 miles greater than what Ford had estimate the hybrid compact SUV would deliver.

“C-MAX Energi is America’s most efficient utility vehicle, a great symbol of how Ford gives customers the power to choose leading fuel-efficiency across our lineup with gas prices spiraling upwards of $5 a gallon in some parts of the country,” said C-MAX chief engineer,  John Davis. “The C-MAX Energi’s leading range also means customers can spend more time on the road and more money on their priorities instead of at the gas pump.”

The 2013 C-MAX Hybrid Plug-in is powered by a 7.6-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that returns 108 MPGs (miles per gallon equivalent).  Once the battery pack is depleted the 2.0-liter I-4 Atkinson engine with an electric motor kicks in and is able to return an impressive 47 mpg highway and 47 mpg highway while functioning as a hybrid.
