If you want an efficient sedan that delivers standout performance in both electric and gas mode, consider a used 2014 Ford Fusion Energi.
This plug-in runs through the combined efforts of 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a 7.6 kWh motor. Together, they create an impressive 195 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque. The two powertrains also work in tandem to deliver an exemplary fuel economy of 88 mpg equivalent. You can expect to average about a 50 mpg, which is leaps and bounds ahead of any gas sedan.
According to a review by The Car Connection, after the 19 miles of electric range are used up, the transition to hybrid mode is absolutely seamless. What’s more, you can travel a further 599 miles before having to refuel or recharge.
Regardless of the mode, the Fusion Energi is easy and enjoyable to drive. You’ll have no trouble keeping up with fast paced highway traffic. Handling around town is supple and comfortable. Furthermore, the car’s finely tuned suspension is ready to absorb any bumps or potholes you may encounter en route to your destination.
