The all-new 2013 Ford C-MAX hybrid and C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid 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 and Prius v. Now the Ford C-MAX has also been named the official car for the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Association (CES) Expo, 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 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 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.

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