The people of Seattle are keeping it green with the Ford C-Max, a popular compact hybrid that gives back to its owners.
The combination of 2.0-Liter 4-cylinder engine and electric motor system totals 188 horsepower, ensuring the C-Max packs sufficiently more punch than either the Chevy Volt or Toyota Prius. Rated at 43 MPG while using gas and with a lithium-battery-only equivalent of 100 mpg, it beats out most of its competitors in the miles per gallon category as well.
This powerful little car can reach 85 mph in EV mode and has tested as far as 30 miles before any gas is needed —although, it's official rating is 19 miles. When combining hybrid and electric-only usage, C-Max Energi purchasers have reported an overall efficiency of 61 MPG. This is one of the reasons that the Indystar reported it as the most technologically advanced vehicle that Ford has ever put through the showroom.
Using the 240v outlet the 2014 C-Max Energi fully charges in just 2.5 hours. And it only takes 7 hours from a normal 110v residential plugin, keeping you away from fuel stations and potentially saving you thousands of dollars per year.
The average American spends $386 dollars a month on gasoline, but monthly payments on a 2014 C-Max Energi are nearly half that. Call us today and learn more about how this pre-owned car could actually have you spending less money each month than a newer model.
