Ford C-MAX Energi, Fusion Energi Overtake Toyota in Plug-In Hybrid Sales

fusion plug in

  • Sales of Ford plug-in hybrid vehicles in October shatter previous record by 45 percent
  • Ford catapults from zero market share to 34 percent in 13 months in the plug-in hybrid vehicle market

DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 4, 2013 – Ford Motor Company took over the No. 1 spot in plug-in hybrid vehicle sales of the Ford Fusion Energi and Ford C-MAX Energi in October, outpacing sales of the Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid vehicle.

Ford sold 2,179 Fusion Energi and C-MAX Energi vehicles last month, accounting for 34 percent of the total plug-in hybrid market. Toyota sold 2,095 units of its Prius plug-in hybrid vehicle.

It is Ford’s best month ever for plug-in hybrid sales, shattering the previous record of 1,508 vehicles sold in September, a 45 percent increase. Ford’s plug-in hybrid vehicles – Fusion Energi and C-MAX Energi – hit this sales milestone just one year after introduction of C-MAX Energi and less than a year since launch of Fusion Energi.

Plug-in hybrid sales are beginning to gain traction in some key growth markets for Ford across the United States.

California continues to account for 38 percent of all Ford plug-in hybrid vehicle sales, but plug-ins are strengthening in the midwestern and eastern regions. New York, Boston, Detroit, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia combine to make up 32 percent of the C-MAX Energi market. Those same cities make up 34 percent of the market for Fusion Energi. New York alone comes close to unseating San Francisco as the second most popular market for Fusion Energi.

#Fusion Energi sales in October doubled in New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. from the previous month.

Plug-in hybrid sales for the industry are up 32 percent year-to-date. The industry sold 39,083 vehicles through October, compared to 29,526 vehicles in 2012. October plug-in hybrid sales came within 40 units of setting an all-time monthly record for the segment.

Through September, aggregate data collected through MyFord® Mobile show Ford plug-in hybrids are being driven about 203,000 electric miles a day, enough to drive around the earth nearly eight times, or more than 8,400 electric-only miles an hour. These numbers are rapidly increasing as Ford continues investing in infrastructure while features exclusive to Ford plug-ins help improve driving habits.

Through MyFord Mobile and other features such as SmartGauge® with EcoGuide, data show how driving habits evolve and how electric-only miles rapidly accumulate. After six months of vehicle ownership, nearly 30 percent of all trips are taken gas-free, compared to about 20 percent at the beginning of ownership.

  • 2013 Ford Fusion was also named Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the highest recommendation the organization has for vehicle safety
  • In addition to top safety marks, Fusion Energi also achieves EPA-rated fuel economy of 100 MPGe combined, including 108 MPGe city/92 MPGe highway

Waldorf, MD, 2013 – 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.

“The Fusion Energi combines the highest possible safety ratings from NHTSA and great fuel economy, two things we know customers are looking for in their vehicles,” said Greg Basiliko of Waldorf Ford. “Our strategy is to provide our customers with a range of powertrain options in our vehicles, while still leading in fuel economy in every segment that we compete.”

The Fusion Energi gets an EPA fuel economy rating of 108 MPGe, which is five MPGe better than the Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid.

The NHTSA five-star rating for the Fusion Energi comes in addition to the 2013 Fusion being named a Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in December. The Top Safety Pick + designation is the highest rating the organization has for vehicle safety.

The Fusion Energi also features the Personal Safety System™ with safety belt technologies and front impact airbags. The Personal Safety System™ is a network of components that work together to tailor the deployment of the front airbags during frontal collisions. Other driver assist technologies available on the Fusion Energi include:

•Lane Keeping Assist

•Adaptive Cruise Control

•Rearview Camera

•Hill Start Assist

•Electronic Parking Brake

Are you a Commercial Fleet Customer? Ford’s new hybrids can you as much as 45 percent in operational costs!

Ford Fusion, C-MAX Hybrids Attracting New Companies Searching for Savings at the Fuel Pump

  • Ford’s new hybrids can save business customers as much as 45 percent in operational costs
  • Ford expects to double hybrid vehicle production as companies procure Fusion and C-MAX for their company fleets, and as model year market share, according to R.L. Polk, has grown 13 percent since 2012
  • Ford C-MAX Hybrid and Fusion Hybrid have been purchased by a variety of companies including Con-way, Esurance, Quest Diagnostics and AT&T for fleet use since their introductions last fall
  • Fleet operations teams can put an average of 24,000 miles annually on a vehicle throughout its service; durability, resale value, technology and cost savings are all major factors in purchase decisions for companies as they evaluate fleet options

DEARBORN, Mich., April 29, 2013 – Ford’s fuel-saving Fusion and C-MAX hybrids are attracting new commercial buyers searching for ways to save money at the pump.
Con-way, Esurance, Quest Diagnostics and AT&T are among the newest companies to purchase Ford hybrid vehicles for their national fleets. Many of their regional employees drive more than 24,000 miles annually.
“New commercial fleet customers are turning to Ford as they look for fuel-efficient, durable vehicles that can withstand the daily use and duty cycles of their businesses,” said Jon Coleman, Ford commercial fleet sustainability and technology manager. “Ford’s Fusion Hybrid and C-MAX Hybrid give them the tools they need to get the job done, including leading EPA-estimated fuel economy, technology, great quality and durability.”
Many companies are seeing the value in replacing gas fleets with new offerings from Ford’s hybrid lineup, and the savings can be significant – cutting total operational costs by as much as 45 percent. At the same time, hybrid vehicles typically retain higher resale values than their gas counterparts. Resale value is an important factor when companies calculate total operating costs for their business fleets.
Ford has seen rising demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, especially hybrids among fleet customers. These buyers are increasingly choosing Ford’s Fusion Hybrid and C-MAX Hybrid – both introduced last fall – as they look to further their sustainability efforts and reduce operating costs in their national fleets.
Con-way, a transportation and logistics services company with nearly 500 locations in North America, is adding just more than 1,000 Fusion Hybrids to its national fleet this year. The cars are deployed with operations and sales personnel at the company’s Con-way Freight, Con-way Truckload and Menlo Worldwide Logistics operating units. Collectively, Con-way expects to save more than 1 million gallons of gas annually while reducing carbon dioxide emissions by as much as 45 percent using Fusion Hybrid as its primary fleet car.
After an extensive selection process, San Francisco-based Esurance chose 50 Fusion Hybrids for its national claims fleet to provide the latest technology, while also saving fuel and reducing carbon emissions. Esurance expects to save more than 69,000 gallons of gas over the next few years, which translates to a savings of more than $255,000, at a national average of $3.71 a gallon.
Commercial fleet customers continue to move toward more environmentally responsible vehicles to support their sustainability efforts, while providing the latest technology and safety features for their drivers. Ford technology such as SmartGauge® with EcoGuide provides valuable hybrid driving information, including the amount of energy captured through regenerative braking, most efficient trip suggestions for frequently traveled routes, and instant feedback on a driver’s green score via leaves earned for each segment driven.
“Besides the obvious benefits of improved fuel efficiency and reduced carbon emissions, the advanced technologies in Fusion Hybrid are just as important,” said Mitch Plaat, Con-way vice president of procurement. “Ford’s technology suite – which includes lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, backup cameras, navigation system and the SYNC® hands-free system – helps Con-way reduce accidents and improve highway safety for employees, their families and other motorists.
“The hybrids’ reduced carbon emissions also complement our sustainability mission and contribute to our efforts to be a good steward of the environment,” Plaat added.
Randy Mullett, Con-way vice president of government relations and public affairs, selected the 2013 Fusion Hybrid for his company car. Mullett is impressed by its fuel economy and advanced safety features. “My Fusion’s advanced technology features, lower emissions, reduced fuel consumption and superb styling all combine for a great car that is inexpensive to operate and embodies the professional image we want to present for our customers,” he says. “It serves as a tangible sign of Con-way’s commitment to sustainability.”
Quest Diagnostics recently added 150 C-MAX Hybrids to support its national logistics requirements. “As the leading diagnostic information services company, we maintain a significant national logistics operation for transporting millions of patient specimens each year for testing at our clinical laboratories,” said Clete Lewis, director, environmental, health and safety, Quest Diagnostics. “Given our scale, the type of vehicles in our fleet can really make a difference to the environment and our business costs.
“The environmentally conscious C-MAX Hybrid is much more fuel efficient and produces less pollution than standard automobiles,” Lewis added. “It is a smart addition to our fleet because it will promote lower fuel costs while also helping us to empower better health in the communities we serve.”
Ford now offers five electrified vehicles:
  • C-MAX Hybrid: EPA-estimated rating of 47 mpg city, highway and combined – up to 7 mpg better than Toyota Prius v – plus 50 more horsepower and 12 class-exclusive technologies
  • C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid: Best EPA-estimated combined miles per gallon equivalency of any plug-in hybrid, Ford’s first production plug-in hybrid vehicle has an EPA-estimated city rating of 108 MPGe and 21 miles of all-electric range – more than triple Prius plug-in’s six miles – and an EPA-estimated gas plus electric range of 620 miles. C-MAX Energi’s “real car” performance includes 195 horsepower (versus Prius plug-in at 134 horsepower), engaging driving dynamics and a quiet interior – all with a leading electric-only speed of 85 mph, more than 20 mph above the Prius
  • Fusion Hybrid: EPA-estimated rating of 47 mpg city, highway and combined, up to 6 mpg better than the Toyota Camry Hybrid
  • Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid: EPA-estimated gas plus electric range of 620 miles, electric-only range of up to 21 miles, and EPA-estimated rating of 108 MPGe city, 92 MPGe highway and 100 MPGe combined
  • Focus Electric: One of America’s most fuel-efficient compact cars, with an EPA-estimated rating of 110 MPGe city, 99 MPGe highway and 105 MPGe combined
