Ford [1] just released two exciting new announcements for its 2013 C-MAX hybrid [2] and the C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid. The 2013 Ford C-MAX hybrid has just been rated at 47 mpg across the board, which means that it gets an EPA-certified 47 mpg city, 47 mpg highway and 47 mpg combined. Ford also announced that the C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid [3] is capable of reaching speeds up to 85 MPH in EV mode, which is the industry’s top electric-only speed among all plug-in hybrid vehicles.

Ford has also equipped the C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid [4] with an EV mode button that is mounted on the dash and allows a driver to switch vehicle operation between three modes. Drivers can opt for electric-only driving [5] without gasoline engine power, normal hybrid mode—where the powertrain melds electric and gasoline engine power as appropriate, or a battery-saving mode that reserves the pack power for later use.

The 2013 C-MAX hybrid [2] arrives this fall starting at $25,995. The C-MAX Energi [3] starts at $29,995 and will being arriving this fall at EV Certified Ford dealers in 19 markets, followed by a nationwide rollout in all 50 states in early 2013.
