    2013 Ford C-Max Energi Plug-in Hybrid First Drive Review

    The 2013 Ford C-Max Energi Plug-in Hybrid is capable of — wait for it — 100 MPG-E or miles per gallon equivalent.

    If you top off the gas tank and the battery, you can get over 600 miles cruising range.

    Those are impressive numbers.

    It’s even more impressive when you consider that the electric only range is 21 miles.

    We tested the 2013 Ford C-Max Energi and found it to be basically the same vehicle as the regular C-Max with a little bit more heft and a lot of potential. The regular Ford C-Max can be seen (here) with our video pitting it against a 2012 Toyota Prius V. It did very well and cemented the idea of Ford surpassing Toyota in the hybrid race.

    From what we’ve seen so far, Toyota better upgrade their Prius Plug-in ASAP!

    Editor’s note: Ford flew The Fast Lane Car to San Francisco to drive the all new, 2013 Ford C-Maz Enegri all over Northern california. We ate well, slept well and even drove the new plug-in hybrid across the Golden gate Bridge.
