Continuing with its Ford C-MAX Energi’s fuel-efficiency figures, FoMoCo announced today that the plug-in hybrid MPV gets an EPA-rated 620 mile range on a single tank and a single charge.
It tops its closest competitors the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid and the Chevrolet Volt, each of which return 540 miles and 380 miles respectively.
“C-MAX Energi is America’s most efficient utility vehicle, a great symbol of how Ford gives customers the power to choose leading fuel-efficiency across our lineup with gas prices spiraling upwards of $5 a gallon in some parts of the country,” says John Davis, C-MAX chief engineer. “The C-MAX Energi’s leading range also means customers can spend more time on the road and more money on their priorities instead of at the gas pump.”
At 620 miles, you can drive from Detroit to New York City, San Francisco to Las Vegas or Denver to Kansas without ever stopping for gas.
Last week, Ford announced that the C-MAX Energi has scored an EPA-estimated 100 MPGe across the board.
