Gallery: 7 Sexy, Sporty Hybrid Cars Hitting the Streets Soon

 
Ford wowed the crowd at the Detroit Auto Show with its all-new 2013 Fusion.

The first option is the Fusion hybrid that’s powered by a 2.0L Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine and an electric motor with lithium-ion batteries for a combined output of 185 horsepower. Ford expects the Fusion hybrid to get up to 47 mpg in the city.
