The 2017 Ford Fusion Energi puts an finish to operation anxiety

Posted on 05. Sep, 2016 by in Ford Canada

Interested in creation a switch to a plug-in hybrid, though disturbed about intensity operation limitations? We’ve already lonesome a few reasons because automobile owners are removing charged adult over Ford’s hybrid and electric vehicles – now let’s speak about because a 2017 Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid is a good choice for those who need to go serve distances than now probable with an all-electric vehicle. In short, a Fusion Energi solves one of a hurdles typically compared with electrified vehicles: operation anxiety.

Ford’s new 2017 Fusion Energi is designed to assuage feelings of operation stress by going serve in every clarity of a word. In a new survey, we asked drivers how distant they consider a Fusion Energi can go on one tank and a full charge. They guessed 420 km.* In reality, a Fusion Energi blew right by their expectations with an estimated sum gas-plus-electric operation of 982 km. Feeling a small reduction concerned yet?

The 2017 Fusion Energi is a plug-in hybrid; that means it uses both an electric battery and a gas-powered engine. In normal use, we can expostulate a Fusion Energi in all-electric mode until a battery is depleted, during that indicate a gas-powered engine takes over to get we to your end supposing you’ve got gas in a tank of course. And given that 83% of Canadians contend that fuel economy is critical to them***, it’s transparent that a Fusion Energi is ideal for maximizing stretch trafficked between fill-ups.

With changes to a hybrid powertrain program and regenerative braking, a Fusion Energi facilities an estimated sum operation of 982 km**. Fusion Energi’s all-electric operation is 35 km, while a gas engine adds another 947 km of operation (based on Government of Canada authorized exam methods.)

According to Kevin Layden, Ford’s executive of electrified powertrain engineering, Fusion Energi gives drivers both a leisure to go gas-free for shorter trips and a fuel potency of a gas engine and regenerative braking for longer trips, all during an affordable price. With provincial incentives also accessible in British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec, there’s never been a improved time to get into a new Fusion Energi.

Here’s to carrying your cake, and eating it too.

** Fusion Energi has a fuel expenditure rating of 2.4 Le/100 km (116 MPGe) (electricity+gas) city/hwy combined, an all-electric pushing operation of adult to 35 km and a gas-plus-electric pushing operation of adult to 982 km. Fuel expenditure ratings formed on Government of Canada authorized exam methods. Actual fuel expenditure will vary. 53-litre fuel tank. Le/100 km is a Government of Canada homogeneous magnitude of gasoline fuel potency for electric mode operation. Based on Government of Canada operation calculation guidance. Actual pushing operation varies with conditions such as outmost elements, pushing behaviours, car upkeep and lithium-ion battery age.

The representation for a consult was drawn from H+K Perspectives, an online row grown and confirmed by H+K Strategies Canada in sequence to support a clients. The methodology we used to partisan a row was designed by heading row experts and is confirmed by a Research + Analytics Group. 

Final consult information were weighted according to Census total formed on age, gender and segment in sequence to obtain a deputy representation of a Canadian population. For analogous purposes, a pointless representation of 845 respondents would produce a domain of blunder of +/- 3.37%, 19 times out of 20.
