Hybrid cars are the hottest things today. After all, even Leonardo di Caprio drives one. But did you think that hybrid cars were only for eco friendly geeks who were willing to sacrifice driving performance for fuel efficiency? Then there is a car that is going to prove you wrong.
The Ford Fusion Hybrid proves that the future is here. In fact, since its launch in 2010, the Fusion Hybrid has just been piling up awards. A few of the accolades it won include:
- · The North American Car of the Year prize at the 2010 Detroit auto show. A committee of forty nine North American automotive journalists chooses the winners based on value, safety handling, innovation, design and driver satisfaction.
- · The Hermance Vehicle Efficiency Award, organized by HybridCars.com, gave its coveted award to the 2010 Fusion Hybrid.
- · One of Car and Driver magazine’s “10 Best Cars for 2010.”
- · Motor Trend’s Car of the Year
Impressive, isn’t it? As if all these accolades were not enough, customers have also given the Ford Fusion Hybrid a resounding thumbs up. It ranked number 2 in hybrid car sales for 2010, leaving far behind the Honda Insight and the Toyota Camry Hybrid in the dust.
The Prius may be for those who hold low emissions sacrosanct, but for those of us who value a decent, comfortable ride and a smooth performance in a car, the Ford Fusion Hybrid is the way to go. It can also be your answer to the best family car.
Positioned solidly in the middle of the mainstream market, the Ford Fusion Hybrid has a fuel efficiency of about 35 to 40 miles per gallon (or 5.7 to 6.5 litres per 100 km) for city driving. The base price is about US$ 29,000, minus extras and accessories. In fact, the Ford Fusion Hybrid is the ideal four door sedan for the eco friendly family.
