The Fusion Energi Plug-in Hybrid Supports Your Urban and Rural Double Life

Sometimes you feel like you're leading a double life, living in the Cincinnati area.

On the one hand, you've become a big-city driver, with urban driving needs -- like fuel efficiency in stop-and-go traffic, and trips too short for the engine to warm up properly. On the other hand, you're still a small-town country kid at heart -- you need a vehicle with a long highway driving range so you can go home and visit family out where the nearest gas station isn't for another 50 miles.

You may be surprised that the vehicle calling to you is a plug-in hybrid: the 2017 Ford Fusion Energi.

Most Americans get plug-in hybrids a little mixed up with battery-electric vehicles, and assume they can't operate without being plugged in and charged every 200 miles. In reality, the 2017 Fusion Energi has an estimated driving range of 610 miles.

"Plug-in hybrids are electric vehicles until you run down the battery," said Wade Jackson, marketing manager for Ford Fusion, "then they work exactly like a conventional hybrid. Fusion Energi – with a full battery and a full tank of gas – can go from San Diego, through Los Angeles and all the way up to San Francisco, and still have up to 110 miles of range remaining."

A Ford plug-in hybrid gives you the freedom to go gas-free for short trips, with the range of gasoline for long trips, and it may be more affordable than you think! Visit Northgate Ford to test drive new Ford vehicles for sale in Cincinnati.
