When we talk about eco-friendly vehicles with improved fuel economy, we are glad to inform you that besides Hybrid model, Ford manufacturers have been preparing the new 2018 Fusion Energi. This plug-in hybrid is a perfect solution for the fans of electric cars. The Energi model has ruled the market since 2013, so we hope that this will be a great new for Energi lovers.
In terms of exterior, the first impression that you get is that this model, as well as the 2018 Hybrid, shares a lot of details with a standard Focus. It’s a midsize four-door vehicle, elegant and sporty at the same time, slightly refreshed and redesigned. However, what has been changed on the new 2018 Fusion Energi is certainly the front fascia which seems leaner and sharper than the one seen on previous models. The grille appears more angular and wider. The base version will be equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels. The new Fusion Energi has also got LED headlights and taillights.
Apart from the higher price, another disadvantage could be a small trunk space. Since the 2018 Ford Fusion Energi has a bigger battery pack placed in the trunk, this might be seen as impractical for your luggage, shopping, longer trips and other activities. We have also been informed that the touch-screen and its controls can be a bit annoying. Ford Focus models have always been known as being tech-friendly, so you can expect a high-tech experience inside the new Fusion Energi. It will offer the infotainment system, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, navigation, satellite radio, USB port, Bluetooth and other types of connectivity, voice control and other options to help the driver’s everyday needs. All in all, the new Energi provides pleasant and cozy ride.
We have got some information about what this new 2018 Fusion Energi might be hiding under its hood. It has been said that it will be using a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine and the bigger lithium-ion battery pack. As we have already mentioned, the possible problem could be that it will take up too much trunk space. However, the new 2018 Fusion Energi will be able to run up to 21 miles on electric power only before the gas engine switches on. In terms of fuel economy, this model can be compared to the 2018 Fusion Hybrid. It will be based on front-wheel-drive system. The good news is that the 2018 Energi will be well-equipped in terms of safety and offer system such as an adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors and emergency braking. This hybrid can speed up to 85 mph.
2018 Ford Fusion Energi
The new Ford Fusion Energi is expected to hit the market late this summer. The price is already being frowned upon and it will start at $31,995. Is this eco-friendly electric vehicle a good value for money? Only time will tell.
