The Incredible Driving Range of Ford C-Max Energi

The Ford C-Max Energi is almost like two cars in one. For short rides around town, it operates as an all-electric plug-in vehicle, perfect for running errands without using any fuel. For longer trips, the hybrid engine offers excellent fuel economy and a range perfect for those great American road trips.

Electric Range

Fully charged, the Ford C-Max Energi has a driving range of 19 miles. The car's 7.6 kilowatt-hours battery is smaller than some of its competitors, which means it can be filled up easier and faster. With the car's onboard charger plugged into a standard 240-volt outlet (the kind that services a dryer or water heater), the electric battery will fully recharge in under three hours.

Fuel Range

With a charged battery on the highway, the car uses a combination of gas and electricity with a mileage rating of 88 mpg. Once the battery is completely drained, the Energi operates like a traditional hybrid with a fuel economy of 40 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. With a full tank and a full charge the Ford C-Max Energi has a range of 550 miles; that's Nashville to New Orleans on a single tank!
