The EPA announced today that it has officially certified the new Ford C-MAX Hybrid with a fuel-economy rating of 47/47 mpg (city/highway) and 47 mpg combined. With that, Ford’s C-MAX Hybrid beats the Toyota Prius V by 7 mpg.

“The all-new C-MAX Hybrid is a great symbol of how Ford has transformed into a fuel-economy and technology leader with 47 mpg across the board and a highway rating 7 mpg better than Toyota Prius v,” said Ford Vice President of Powertrain Engineering Joe Bakaj. “We’ve done this with innovation – represented by nearly 500 hybrid patents – while driving costs down 30 percent so we can bring these fuel-saving vehicles to more customers.”
