Power & Performance
The Ford Fusion Energi is equipped with a 2.0-liter I-4 energy plug-in hybrid engine that is combined with a lithium-ion battery. Regenerative braking charges the electric motor and lithium-ion battery while driving along with a 120V Convenience Charge Cord that can fully charge your vehicle within seven hours. Simply plug in overnight and drive off fully charged in the morning. Front-wheel drivetrain comes standard on the Fusion Energi and the eCVT automatic transmission makes shifting smooth and easy.
One of the biggest reasons people choose a hybrid plug-in is obvious: fuel economy. The Fusion Energi offers an EPA-Estimated 43/41/42 city/highway/combined MPG* and 104 city/91 highway/97 combined MPGe* while in hybrid mode. This translates into real savings at the pump and more time spent out on the road.
