August 16th, 2013 | by Christopher DeMorro

When the Ford C-Max Hybrid rolled out last fall, the Blue Oval made a big deal about the Prius-rivaling 47 mpg rating.

December 19th, 2012 | by Christopher DeMorro

I’ll be the first person to admit when I am wrong, and I have been critical of the decision to hype up the Ford C-Max hybrid for months in advance of actual sales. But the tactic seems to have worked, as in the first two months of sales the Ford C-Max Hybrid has become the fastest-selling hybrid car ever

Ford has declared war on the Toyota Prius family of hybrid vehicles, and its latest weapon in the war of fuel efficiency is the C-Max Hybrid. The Blue Oval has every reason to feel confident too; during its first full month of sales, the Ford C-Max Hybrid outsold the Toyota Prius V. Is the Prius brand losing its luster

The Ford C-Max Energi has been hyped by the Blue Oval as both cheaper and more efficient than the competition. Ford now has another metric it can use in its ad war, as the EPA has given the Ford C-Max Energi a 21-mile all-electric range, and a total driving range of around 620 miles
