Excellent Efficiency, Comfort, Style, Performance!
December 16, 2017
I own a 2016 Ford Fusion Energi (plug-in) and just absolutely love it. I leased mine with a $10,000 manufacturers rebate and got a great deal! I do a lot of stop-n-go driving in my morning/afternoon commutes and average 55-60MPG per tank of fuel (mostly 90 miles round trip commute per day, some local city driving around home in the evenings, weekends).
I save the main battery for running errands and going out for dinner in the evening and on weekends around town. In that kind of driving, I don't use any gasoline at all. The driving experience with the electric motor is superior to a gas-only car. The electric motor is very zippy in stop-n-go driving -- no waiting for a gas engine to rev up to move. And it's so silent - a very high-quality feel. I like being able to recharge at home (or anywhere) with a standard 110V outlet. I also love the styling and the big-car room inside.
If your commute has a lot of stop-n-go, or you do a lot of city driving, this car is fantastic, and you'll get great efficiency and a wonderful driving experience. If you need a car with a big trunk, however, this might not be the car for you, since the battery takes up space in the trunk.
I've had my car for 18 months, 20K miles and can say there have been zero problems thus far. Very reliable, very refined, excellent body structure, no squeaks, rattles, wind whistles. Everything is perfect. I would recommend this car to my best friend or family member if they do a lot of stop-n-go driving or city driving. I could not be happier and would lease/buy another one.
ps: I traded my 2015 Mustang GT Premium 6-speed manual for this car and thoroughly enjoy it!
