The all-new 2013 Ford C-MAX hybrid [1] and C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid [2] models are off to a great start. November was the first full month that both C-MAX hybrids were available and combined they outsold their closest competitors, the Toyota Prius plug-in [3] and Prius v. Now the Ford C-MAX has also been named the official car for the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Association (CES) Expo [4], the world’s largest annual innovation event, scheduled for Jan. 8-11 in Las Vegas.

“The C-MAX hybrids are off to a great start and our dealers and customers, especially in California, cannot get enough of them early in the launch,” said Dave Mondragon, Ford Motor Company general marketing manager. A total of 4,848 C-MAX hybrids [5] were sold in November compared with a total of 4,456 Toyota Prius plug-in and Prius v hybrids. The C-MAX sales figures helped Ford achieve its best hybrid [6] sales month ever in November with 6,985 delivered.

Both versions of the 2013 C-MAX will be featured throughout this year’s annual CES event [4].

“C-MAX is made for CES [4], especially when you consider the amount of advanced hybrid technology it delivers,” said Mondragon. “From SmartGauge and MyKey to the hybrid [7] transmission and strong fuel economy, C-MAX belongs in the same conversation as the other technologies at CES.”
