Since its inception in 1903, Ford Motor Company has consistently made a point to Go Further. In today’s climate, that means leading the way in eco-friendly electric and hybrid vehicles. And while there are a whole range of vehicles that Ford has committed to hybridizing, like the legendary Mustang and F-150, we are going to look at a few of the Edmonton Ford electric and hybrid models we proudly carry at Kentwood Ford.
The Ford C-MAX Hybrid
Just because he’s a featherweight boxer, doesn’t mean Floyd Mayweather isn’t the most recognizable name in boxing. Best in class is still best in class, and the C-MAX is just that. Best in class combined horsepower and passenger volume makes this nimble little beauty both fun and practical. Deft and dextrous, the C-MAX gets you where you’re going on as little gas as possible, thanks to its power-split hybrid engine. This compact is one smart car — in fact its SmartGauge™ with EcoGuide technology instructs you on how to maximize your C-MAX’s efficiency while minimizing your gas consumption. Less time at the pumps means more time out enjoying the ride. Add in available Sync®3 technology and FordPass, and the C-MAX is definitely the champ of its class.
The Ford Fusion Hybrid
The Ford Fusion hybrid was engineered to enable the driver to switch seamlessly between the gas engine and the electric motor. Its innovative combination of a gas engine and battery-driven electric motor also allows the vehicle to deliver great fuel efficiency and performance. Thanks to the gas engine and regenerative braking system, the Fusion’s battery pack recharges automatically and does not need to be plugged in.
Plug-in Hybrid Models
The C-MAX Energi
Who says you can’t be stylish while saving the world? The Ford Fusion Energi model skips the cape and tights for sleek lines, sharp details, and superior performance. Ford’s favourite sedan is loaded with safety features, and other technology like the aforementioned Sync®3 technology, FordPass, and of course, SmartGauge™. Choose between gas, electric, or a combination, in the Energi Plug-In Hybrid, and wave as you pass gas stations and other vehicles on the road.
The Fusion Energi
Similarly to the Fusion Hybrid, the Ford Fusion Energi is also part gas and part electric. However, the only difference remains that the Ford Fusion Energi is engineered with an optional plug-in feature. For an enhanced driving experience and to maximize your battery life, you can plug your hybrid into a 120-volt outlet. The vision behind the Ford Fusion Energi is to enjoy the best of both worlds!
The Focus Electric
The Focus has been one of Ford’s best sellers since its debut in the late 90s, and it’s easy to see why. Neat styling and intelligent design has been a part of this compact’s DNA from the start, and now you can add environmentally sound to that list. The gas-free Focus Electric produces no CO2 emissions whatsoever and has a driving range of 185 kilometers between charges. You can also enjoy the possibility of further electric vehicle rebates, not to mention you’ll be paying only about an eighth of what your friends pay when they fill up on gas. It isn’t only a great choice for the environment, but for your wallet as well.
Ford is, and always has been, committed to automotive innovation. Whether it be making vehicles safer, faster, or more environmentally conscious, Ford is driven to go further. Kentwood Ford is very proud to be a part of this movement, and aims to honour this philosophy every day at our dealership.
