Very underestimated hybrid!

Its a shame Ford didnt just redesign the car to make it sleeker instead of discontinuing it. This blows away aPrius by far. Great pick up and fun to drive. Smooth and quiet ride! Using the plug in we get about 1000 miles for each tank of gas. And 37 mpg with the hybrid engine.

Very economical cost of operation. Nice size. Comfortable. Ford service mechanics seem unprepared to work on it, however. We like it. So far. good performance.

One of the best cars i have ever owned

This car was terrific from the intuitive layout to paddle switches that make sense to an average of 60 mpg over 10,000 miles it is quiet and has great road manners. Consumer reports was all wrong, on electric alone it will go 80 MPH not 50 I am so impressed it beats my wife's Prius all to heck and at $10,000 less dollars!!

2017 Ford C-Max Energi Overview


The Ford C-Max Energi is the plug-in version of the C-Max Hybrid hatchback. This year, it remains largely unchanged. However, the trim levels have been revised.

Two trims are now available: the SE and Titanium.

From the exterior, the C-Max Energi is virtually identical to the C-Max Hybrid. The front-end has angry headlights and a dual stacked grille as well as a segmented lower fascia. The rear-end features a steep liftgate like those found on minivans. Standard features include automatic headlights, side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Power/heated side mirrors, a panoramic moonroof, a hands-free liftgate, and rain-sensing windshield wipers are available as well. 

Under the hood, the C-Max Energi is powered by a 188-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor mated to an electronically controlled continuously variable automatic transmission. The C-Max Energi has a 19-mile EV range by utilizing a 7.6 kWh Lithium-ion battery. The EPA estimates it has a total 550-mile driving range.

Inside, the C-Max Energi has a two-tone cloth interior and a 60/40-split folding rear seat. Cargo space is 42.8 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down. The center stack features the standard SYNC audio system that include CD/MP3 playback, Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB port. It can be upgraded to the SYNC3 multimedia system with an 8-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, voice command recognition, two USB ports, and a Sony premium audio system. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, power windows/locks, remote keyless entry, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Leather upholstery, heated front seats, and ambient lighting are also available.

Standard safety features include an advanced airbag system, antilock brakes, an electronic stability control system, a backup camera, and a post-collision notification.
