2014 Ford C-Max Energi Overview

New/Notable:
  • Plug-in hybrid version of the C-Max
  • 19 miles of electric range
  • Seats up to five passengers
The 2014 Ford C-Max Energi is a plug-in hybrid that offers gas-free motoring for 19 miles and good fuel efficiency when the juice runs out.

The C-Max was developed to compete with the Prius v from Toyota, as a vehicle that offers the fuel economy benefits of a hybrid with family friendly cargo and passenger room. From the outside, the four-door hatchback looks like a larger version in many ways of the Fiesta sub-compact, just stretched at each corner. A large lower air intake is the most prominent feature up front, while a rear spoiler comes standard in the back. Ford’s foot-activated lift gate is optional. When equipped it allows you to open the rear hatch simply by waving your foot under the rear bumper, a useful feature if you need to load cargo but both hands are full.

The Energi uses a similar setup to the Hybrid model; the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine and electric motor are used and they combine to output 188-hp. The difference is a larger battery that has higher capacity and can store enough power to give the C-Max Energi 19-miles of all-electric range on a full charge before any gas is needed. When the power runs out, the gas engine clicks on and the Energi then runs the exact same way the Hybrid does, with regenerative braking and a host of other technologies working to recharge the battery for assistive use. When running on gas, the C-Max Energi returns 40/36 mpg city/highway. Charging the battery from empty to full takes 2.5 hours on a 240V charger (installation separate), or seven hours on a standard 120V home power outlet.

Inside, the C-Max Energi has slightly less cargo room than the Hybrid thanks to that larger lithium-ion battery pack but still has more space than a midsize sedan. Behind the 60/40-split folding second row is 19.2 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands to 43.4 cubic feet with the seats folded down. The C-Max Energi comes with a lot of standard features, including dual-zone automatic climate control, Ford’s SYNC infotainment system which accepts voice commands, power driver’s seat, heated seats, push button start, USB/iPod port, satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, and leather upholstery. A navigation system and HD radio are optional.

The C-Max Energi earned a four-star overall rating from the NHTSA for its performance in crash tests. Antilock brakes, seven airbags, and electronic stability control come standard, as does Ford’s MyKey system. An automatic parallel parking system is optional.
