Ford Unveils New 2013 Fusion Hybrid (lithium-ion, 47 MPG) and Plug-In Fusion Energi (100+ MPGe)

Ford Unveils New 2013 Fusion Hybrid (lithium-ion, 47 MPG) and Plug-In Fusion Energi (100+ MPGe)

isn't just a rehash of the 2010 Fusion hybrid. It features an all-new, downsized Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder engine with a displacement of 2.0L instead of 2.5L. The Nickel-metal hydride battery pack has been replaced with a lighter and more powerful lithium-ion battery pack, which allows the 2013 Fusion hybrid to drive on electric-power only at speeds of up to 62 MPH, compared to 47 MPH for the 2010 Fusion hybrid. Fuel economy should also be "best-in-class" with 47 MPG in the city and 44 MPG on the highway. Ford said with some joy: "Fusion Hybrid fuel economy stands to outperform the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid by 4 mpg city and 5 mpg highway and the 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid by 12 mpg and 4 mpg, respectively."
