Get the details on rat­ings for the Ford Fusion Ener­gi.

The 2013 Ford Fusion Ener­gi has earned the high­est pos­si­ble “five-star” Over­all Vehi­cle Score from the Nation­al High­way Traf­fic Safe­ty Admin­is­tra­tion (NHTSA). The five-star rat­ing is the U.S. Government’s high­est-pos­si­ble safe­ty rat­ing and is deter­mined only after severe test­ing pro­ce­dures as part of NHTSA’s New Car Assess­ment Pro­gram (NCAP), which com­bines vehi­cle per­for­mance in frontal and side-impact crash tests and resis­tance to rollover.

The Fusion Ener­gi plug-in hybrid joins the Ford Fusion and the Ford Fusion Hybrid which already received five-star safe­ty rat­ings. NHTSA has elect­ed to test plug-in vehi­cles sep­a­rate­ly from vehi­cles pow­ered by gaso­line inter­nal com­bus­tion engines as the mar­ket share of elec­tri­fied vehi­cles is increas­ing. April marked Ford’s best hybrid sales month ever with Ford’s EV mar­ket share hit­ting an all-time high of 18 per­cent, up from 3 per­cent last April.
