Ford has announced the Fusion Energi has been given an EPA fuel economy rating of 108 MPGe city / 92 MPGe highway / 100 MPGe combined.
According to Ford, the plug-in hybrid will enable consumers to save approximately $6,850 (€5,185) over the course of five years - when compared to an "average" new car. While the potential savings can be huge, the model has a base price of $39,495 which is significantly more than the Fusion Hybrid which starts at $27,200.
As we have previously reported, the Fusion Energi will go on sale early next year and feature a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine, a lithium-ion battery and an electric motor. This setup will enable the model to have a combined maximum output of approximately 188 bhp (140 kW).
