Ford C-Max Hybrid Energi - 100 mpg

Ford C-Max Hybrid Energi: The bawdy electric - MarketWatch: "If you drive 20 miles or less a day, the Energi plug-in version is for you. It costs more, but you’d probably go to the dentist more often than the gas station. If your daily driving much exceeds 30 miles, the regular hybrid is the better choice. You’ll save about two grand and you’ll still get 40-plus mpg, which is stellar. What I like most about the Energi is its transparency. There’s nothing exotic or experimental-feeling about the car. The plug-in option is nothing more than a box to check at the dealership: hybrid or super hybrid? What I’m saying is, fear not. There’s a lot of upside in the electrification of automobiles. Just look at the Porsche 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid: 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds, 202 mph, 78 mpg! The C-Max Hybrid Energi is the merest rough sketch of how plug-capable cars of tomorrow will work. And yet, it’s pretty clear from the Energi, they will work."
