We constantly see suggestions for the ultimate commuter hybrid or the ultimate long-distance plugin. But what about the ultimate hybrid for everyday life? Consider a family-friendly used 2015 Ford C-MAX Energi.
An Auto Trader review describes the 2015 C-MAX Energi as one of the most well-rounded hybrid vehicles on the market. The tester found that the C-MAX Energi handles just like a normal car with one exception. When the car is in full EV mode, the ride is almost completely silent, which certainly isn’t reason for complaint.
With the 2.0-liter gasoline engine and electric motor, the C-MAX Energi is packing a combined 188 horsepower and delivers 88 MPGe or 38 mpg combined on gas power alone. Drivers have a respectable 20 miles range in electric mode, which is more than enough for short commutes and running errands. Between a full tank of gas and fully charged motor, the C-MAX Energi delivers a whopping 550 miles of range and can carry you and your loved ones at a maximum speed of 85 miles per hour.
The 2015 C-MAX Energi is fitted with a 120/240 volt plug, push-button ignition, MyFord Touch, and a special energy evaluation display. You can download a Ford smartphone app that keeps you up to date with your car’s charge level when it’s out of sight.
