DEARBORN, MI – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has certified the new 2013 Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid at up to 108 MPGe city driving.

Fusion Energi is the Ford brand’s fifth electrified vehicle to launch in the past year and is expected to accelerate the company’s record hybrid sales pace, including its highest monthly hybrid sales month ever in November, according to the automaker.

The EPA also certified Fusion Energi to deliver up to 92 MPGe highway and a combined 100 MPGe.

Adding to Fusion Energi’s value are its innovative technologies, such as:

  • SmartGauge with EcoGuide, which provides in-vehicle customizable displays, including instantaneous fuel economy readings and coaching functions to help drivers understand and optimize their fuel efficiency.
  • SYNC with MyFord Touch, which offers multiple ways – including voice commands – for customers to manage and control their phone, available navigation, and climate functions. Plug-in hybrids and all-electric models have additional options for monitoring information, such as battery state of charge.
  • EV+ combines the built-in GPS of Ford SYNC with proprietary software algorithms developed by Ford engineers to learn frequent destinations. As a result, vehicles give drivers more drive time in electric-only mode.
