If you're looking for a seriously efficient plug-in hybrid, be sure to check out the 2017 Ford C-Max Energi. This vehicle offers impressive fuel economy and its plug-in feature gives it the ability to drive using all-electric power so you can enjoy some great savings while being kind to the environment. At Koons Silver Spring Ford, we think the C-Max Energi is a great choice for drivers who want the great features of the traditional C-Max but with the benefits of a plug-in hybrid.
The difference between the C-Max Hybrid and the C-Max Energi is that the Energi model is a plug-in hybrid. While traditional hybrids use their gas engine as their main source of power and switch to electric power at low speeds to save gas, plug-ins use their battery-powered electric motor as their main power source, only switching to the gas engine to extend their driving range.
The 2017 C-Max Energi has a charge port that allows you to charge the vehicle overnight, or to charge it in just 2.5 hours. This charge port will light up to let you know what the charge level is for your convenience. Then once you're on the road, you can drive in EV mode, which will get you up to 95MPGe in the city. If you didn't have time to charge or you've already exceeded the electric driving range, you can drive using just the gas engine. Whatever your current driving needs might be, this vehicle will accommodate.
