I’ve been thinking about making the switch to an EV. Can you tell me about the differences between the Ford Fusion Hybrid and the Energi?
The main difference between the two EV models is that the Ford Fusion Energi is a plug-in hybrid. It can drive for approximately 20 miles without touching any of the gasoline and can be recharged by using the onboard cable.
If you are considering an eco-friendly vehicle, you can’t go wrong with either. Both help to drastically reduce your carbon footprint. Powered by an Ecoboost engine, these naturally aspirated motors use turbochargers, direct injection, and twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) to increase fuel efficiency and torque.
Equipped with dual LCD screens that display SmartGauge and EcoGuide, you can monitor the car’s performance at all times. A cluster of lush green leaves is shown to indicate how well the regenerative braking is working.
Seat backs, cushions, and head restraints are made out of soy-based polyurethane foam, and the tires are from recycled materials.

I just opened a catering company, and I’m looking for a new mode of transportation that will suit my needs. Backing down alleyways in Seattle is a delicate procedure. Does the current Ford Transit Van have anything that can help with that?
