Ford C-MAX Hybrid to Deliver 570 Miles on One Tank of Gas
The all-new Ford C-MAX Hybrid will offer “real car” range at 570 miles on one tank of gas, beating Toyota Prius v by 120 miles, the Dearborn automaker announced Monday.
EPA previously rated the Ford C-MAX Hybrid at 47 miles per gallon city, highway and combined, beating Toyota Prius v by up to 7 mpg.
The power of C-MAX Hybrid stems from the combination of a gasoline engine and a battery-driven electric motor, providing customers with “real car” performance and capability. C-MAX Hybrid will offer a top speed of 62 mph in EV mode and 188 net horsepower, beating the Toyota Prius v by more than 50 horsepower. When powered by gasoline, C-MAX Hybrid uses the all-new 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine – powerful and fuel efficient and among the most advanced non-turbocharged four-cylinder powertrains Ford has ever offered.
“The all-new C-MAX Hybrid is a great symbol of how Ford has transformed into a fuel-economy and technology leader with 47 mpg across the board and a highway rating 7 mpg better than Toyota Prius v,” said Ford Vice President of Powertrain Engineering Joe Bakaj. “We’ve done this with innovation – represented by nearly 500 hybrid patents – while driving costs down 30 percent so we can bring these fuel-saving vehicles to more customers.”
The all-new Ford C-MAX Hybrid has a base price of $25,995, including destination and delivery, which is $1,300 lower than Toyota Prius v.
C-MAX Hybrid is available for order at Ford dealers nationwide.
