One of the main reasons why people tend to shy away from a hybrid vehicle is the stigma that they’re too expensive or don’t perform as well as other vehicles. For instance, here’s a question we get a lot at our dealership: Is the Ford Fusion Hybrid a good value? This depends a lot on how you drive and what you’re looking for in a car, but we definitely think so. But don’t just take our word for it, as the Ford Fusion was recently awarded the best Hybrid Car for the money by U.S. News and World Report.
How Efficient is the Ford Fusion Hybrid?
Gas prices may be down for now — and will hopefully stay that way — but the benefits of owning a hybrid like the Ford Fusion will show up regardless. The Fusion Hybrid is a great car if you’re planning on racking up a lot of city miles, especially with its 40 MPG in the city rating. Another bonus of the Fusion Hybrid is that it excels in stop-and-go traffic with regenerative braking, which powers up your battery when you need to apply the brakes. With the Fusion Hybrid you will also be getting a greater highway efficiency than the standard Fusion.
Is the Ford Fusion Hybrid Powerful?
As we mentioned earlier, it’s sometimes thought that a hybrid vehicle isn’t going to be very powerful. With the Ford Fusion Hybrid that is definitely not the case. Since it operates on an electric and gasoline powered motor, the Ford Fusion actually has a greater combined horsepower than the other Fusion engines, which totals at 188.
