“The all-new MKZ Hybrid proves that thoughtful customers who prioritize fuel economy and reducing emissions do not need to compromise on luxury, driving quality or advanced technology,” said Jim Farley, group vice president, Global Marketing, Sales and Service. “MKZ is our strongest proof yet on what the reinvented Lincoln stands for – beautiful vehicles with compelling and warm experiences that create a clear alternative in today’s increasingly competitive luxury marketplace.”

When compared to its closest competitors, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid fuel-economy rating beats the Lexus ES 300h, Infiniti M35h and the BMW ActiveHybrid 3.

The 2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is powered by a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder mated to an electric-motor – together they make 188-hp and 129 lb-ft of torque.

Sales of the 2013 Lincoln MKZ and MKZ Hybrid will start later this year. Prices for the Lincoln MKZ start at $35,925.
