This would tend to confirm the results of researchers who have determined that car buyers rate fuel economy as the number one criteria when shopping for a new car. Hybrid technology has been available for several years now, with interest from consumers slowly but steadily building during that time. Research reveals that 60% of current buyers are looking to purchase a hybrid vehicle, and Ford is now projecting that they will achieve an all-time record in quarterly hybrid sales by the end of the year.
As the headliners in Ford’s transformed lineup, the C-MAX Hybrid and C-MAX Energi Plug-In Hybrid are the standouts among a total of eight models that are rated at providing 40 mpg or more. This is in keeping with Ford’s commitment to offer their customers a range of thoroughly fuel-efficient vehicles to choose from.
“Our customers are excited to have a fresh hybrid option,” says Ford Marketing Manager C.J. O’Donnell, “with leading fuel economy that does not sacrifice driving fun, performance, and technology – choices typically not offered with hybrids.” More than half of Ford’s hybrid sales are expected in the final quarter of this year, boosted by the debut of the C-MAX Hybrids, as well as the ongoing success of the Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid.
