With the growing urban popularity of eco-friendly vehicles, energy efficient cars can be seen roaming the streets of Seattle every day. Stand out from the crowd during your commute in a 2014 Ford C-Max SEL Energi.
This 5-passenger wagon boasts an electric motor and a 4-cylinder, 188 HP gasoline engine, providing you with the perfect balance of power. Equipped with a large-capacity, 7.6 kWh lithium-ion battery, this vehicle can travel over a distance of approximately 19 miles without ever touching the fuel reserve. Using its normal hybrid operation, it gets 38 MPG and can reach speeds of up to 85 MPH.
According to Edmunds, the Ford C-Max Energi drives and feels like a more expensive European car. It’s quieter than a Prius and can cover a range of 500 miles on one tank, making it the perfect option for road trips. This plug-in hybrid can be recharged in as little as 2.5 hours using a 240 volt cable. A standard 120 V household outlet can have the battery at full power in about 7 hours.
