Ford Fusion Hybrid Fuel Economy

Ford completed their fuel economy tests and the Fusion Hybrid has received some very impressive mpg numbers.  At 41 mpg city and 36 mpg highway, the Fusion Hybrid has jumped to the top of the list of most fuel efficient cars.

The Prius and Civic Hybrid beat out the Fusion Hybrid by a bit, but the Fusion Hybrid outranks the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Nissan Altima Hybrid, which may be it's two main rivals for truly midsize cars.

The Fusion Hybrid has a reach of 700 miles on one tank of gas and is a full hybrid, meaning it can go up to 47 mph on all electric power. The range for all electric power is limited, but the battery power is recharged through the gas engine and an improved regenerative braking system which captures 94 percent of brake friction energy.

The Fusion's nickel-metal hydride battery is lighter and produces 20 percent more power than the Ford Escape hybrid. It also devised a way to get 28 percent more power out of the battery cells, said Praveen Cherian, program leader for the Fusion Hybrid.
