Ford recently my trip to Dearborn, Michigan, so I could attend some of its and NAIAS. In this first from the trip, I’ll on my test drive of the 2014 Fusion Energi in Michigan, Dearborn to Detroit. More on the NAIAS events I attended follow in the coming days.

I wasn’t surprised much by the of the plug-in hybrid-electric Fusion. but in this that’s a good thing.

The thing I experienced was ample room as we put our travel bags in the Hybrids and full electrics are by some as being small this could be propaganda on older hybrids) — in this the car certainly had a lot of room. Apart that first impression, the thing that hit me was that acceleration was just as strong as, if not a stronger than, that of the mid-sized family car, and it started the engine whenever power was desired, without us.

I didn’t any concern regarding range in car. You can see how much electric you have, and then when runs out you are switched to gas and treat the car you would a conventional car. On you have about 21 miles of in the Fusion Energi, and that up to 620 miles if you include the range by a full tank of gas.

The Fusion Energi offers a smooth and comfortable ride. a quality car, corners seem to have been cut

The fuel economy of the car is excellent, of — 100 MPGe on battery and 43 MPG on gas.

I can’t say I had any complaints about the Energi. If you’re able to  ($34,693 after the federal tax it’s a great plug-in option. But now that there are a dozen plug-in cars on the you have a lot of choice in this

You can choose between the Fusion or a plug-in with more range or a lower price. It comes down to personal but I definitely think the Fusion is worth a test drive and a option for many consumers.
