Ford C-MAX Hybrid 2012

Wall Street Journal - December 14, 2011

Ford plans to add two new hybrids to its 2012 line­up in an attempt to leap ahead of Toy­ota in fuel effi­cien­cy. The cars, called the C-MAX hybrid and C-MAX Ener­gi plug-in hybrid, will achieve bet­ter com­bined fuel econ­o­my than the cur­rent Prius v hybrid wag­on, which is rat­ed to go 42 miles on a gal­lon of gas in com­bined high­way and city dri­ving.
