Ford is making a big push into electric vehicles, as shown by the new Ford C-Max Energi.
The C-Max is the most fuel efficient plug-in hybrid currently available, beating the Prius plug-in for the top spot. The C-Max is rated at 109 mpg in the City and 100 mpg overall.
Ford calculates that a typical owner will save $7,000 in five years in fuel costs at today's gasoline prices. Owners are also doing two things that many cherish--cutting their ties to imported oil and wars for oil as well as slashing their transportation environmental footprint.
