If you are looking for an innovative, eco-friendly vehicle that is loaded with high-tech gadgets, consider the 2015 Ford C-Max Energi SEL. This plug-in hybrid offers the best of two worlds. You can get great gas mileage while still having the option to use electricity-only to power the car. Ranked as the #7 Wagon by U.S. News & World Report, it’s ideal for families.
The C-Max Energi has unique inner workings. It is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is coupled with an electric motor fed by a 7.6 kWh lithium-ion battery. That means that it can run for approximately 19 miles without ever touching the fuel. Functioning as a hybrid, it gets 38 mpg combined. In performance tests conducted by experts at Edmunds, this spry model went from zero to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds.
The SEL trim level includes 17-inch alloy wheels and automatic wipers will turn on in the event of rain. The luxurious cabin features leather upholstery and heated front seats. This hatchback can carry five passengers comfortably and has a cargo area that can be expanded to 42.8 cubic feet.
