2013 Ford Fusion Energi Pricing: Higher Than Chevy Volt After Incentives #car #green

You don't know how much money GM has lost on each Volt, if you don't consider the R&D cost, GM still lose at least $30K per vehicle after they sold more than 30,000 of them. For ford, the only reason to make Fusion PHEV is strategic, not financial (they will lose >$20 per fusion Energi), so by putting a price like that, they can minimize their loss! bottonline, PHEV is not a viable product for any auto company, even Toyota lose $5000 per Prius PHEV afte they sold >1,000,000 Prius and they told every advantage of component sharing with regular Prius! During the battery conference, folks from auto company said that the only reason they make PHEV is because of IP and technology advancement. It is a money-loser for many years!
