Ford C-Max Hybrid Fuel Economy Downgraded To 43 MPG

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. Unfortunately for Ford, real world driving results were nowhere near Ford’s mpg claims, launching both lawsuits and a Federal investigation.

July 23rd, 2013 | by Christopher Tracy

The C-Max is the first hybrid that I have spent a significant amount of time with. My other experiences are an hour with a Prius and 3 laps of a test track in a Focus Electric.

I learned a lot about myself, my driving style, and what it means to be a hybrid driver slow

While General Electric has a vested interest in see electric and plug-in hybrid cars storm the car market, GE has apparently had a change of heart. The electronics and aviation giant announced that it was no longer seeking to replace much of its fleet with 25,000 hybrid and electric vehicles. Instead, GE will pursue other alt-fuel options, including CNG and propane

Sound the sad trombone, because once again there is a lawsuit over the failure of drivers to achieve the listed EPA mpg numbers. This time it is Ford which is facing the wrath of angry car buyers, spearheaded by a buyer out of California who wants the Blue Oval to reimburse him for his purchase while ceasing sales tactics highlighting the 2013 Ford Fusion and C-Max Hybrid’s 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
