For a hybrid car that delivers a commanding performance around town and on the express way, there’s no better option than the 2015 Ford Fusion Energi. Consider this plug-in for your next used sedan.
An Autotrader review describes the electric mode acceleration as satisfying and responsive, which will be apparent the moment you hit the highway. Put the pedal to the metal and you’ll reach 60 mph in 7.9 seconds, outpacing both the Chevy Volt and Toyota Prius. While you can’t drive across the state on the 20-mile range alone, it’s hard to scoff at the 40 mpg city/38 hwy rating the Environmental Protection Agency gave the 2014 Energi.
After the exit ramp, the Fusion Energi navigates you through gridlock city traffic with ease. Cornering is a pleasure, while steering is clean and exact. Although it does rank as a midsize sedan, this car maneuvers into parking space just as well as its compact plug-in rivals. When in electric mode, this vehicle is absolutely silent, which makes morning commutes peaceful and conversations easy.
