The year 2018 will bring us another fuel economy oriented and eco-friendly vehicle. It will be the new 2018 Ford C-Max which belongs to a series of electric mode cars. Besides basic version, Ford will also offer two other versions – C-Max Hybrid and C-Max Energi.
The exterior of the 2018 C-Max brings some minor changes and no significant rework has been noticed. Certainly it will appear more modern, combining its simple look and a bit rounded form. The new C-Max will be based on Focus platform and offer typical equipment. There are 17-inch aluminum wheels. When it comes to the front part of this vehicle, we can say that it is somehow leaner and upgraded. The front grille, with chrome details, has been redesigned, especially its upper part. Also, the headlights are slightly redesigned and they will be using LED technology. We have also noticed a large air intake and a reworked bumper.
When you go inside the new 2018 Ford C-Max, you will find the finest safety and technological equipment. First of all, you will notice an information system that displays fuel economy information on the instrument panel, known as the Eco Guide. So, drivers will be able to monitor their driving behavior, but also adjust climate control and other factors and drive more efficiently using the Eco Select system. The new C-Max will also provide an infotainment system and an 8.0-inch touch screen on the dashboard. Other technological features include sound system, USB port, Bluetooth and other types of connectivity and various options for the safety system. The luxurious cabin is spacious enough for five adult passengers and it offers the leather seats. The steering wheel has also been wrapped in finest leather.
The new 2018 Ford C-Max will be hiding a real treat under its hood, especially for the electric car fans. It will be using a combination of a 2.0-litre Atkinson 4-cylinder engine and an electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery pack. All together, this power train can provide around 188 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. This model will also use an automatic gearbox and the eCVT, a system used to link the gas engine and the electric motor. The estimated distance using only electric motor is 21 miles. The C-Max will be based on the front-while-drive system and the estimated top speed is 102 mph.
