The numbers prove erratic - with every week yielding pump-side surges and budget-shattering costs. Gasoline demands a heavy price from drivers, and each mile siphons away savings.
Ford strives to counter this, providing its customers with a series of lithium-ion options and plug-in platforms. Since 2008 - when the first generation Fusion Hybrid debuted, promising spirited performance and equally spirited economy - the company has offered effective alternatives to gasoline-powered sedans, hatchbacks, and crossovers
The History of Ford’s Hybrid Line-Up
In 2008 Ford sought to deliver efficiency, pairing together Atkinson power and hydride battery performance. The Fusion Hybrid served as a milestone for the brand, pushing its economic capabilities to new heights (a then record-breaking 41 miles-per-gallon in the city and 36 miles-per-gallon on the highway). It was a strong counterpoint to rapidly-climbing gasoline prices and soon dominated the charts.
That domination never ended. After the Fusion came a series of hybrid and all-electric platforms - each improving upon the last and enabling drivers to better control their MPG experiences.
