Learn more about the advantages of the Ford Fusion Hybrid and Ford Fusion Energi from the #1 Ford EV dealer on Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast in 2016.

Powertrain

The key to efficiency for both models is a 2.0-litre Atkinson-Cycle inline four-cylinder engine, plus a high-voltage electric motor. The engine and motor combine for a total system output of 188 horsepower. On the Ford Fusion Energi, a unique charge depletion mode allows you to temporarily increase that figure to 195 horsepower, making for even more thrills on the road.

Connected to the electric motor in the Ford Fusion Energi is a 7.6 kWh lithium-ion battery. For the Ford Fusion Hybrid, a 1.4 kWh lithium-ion battery comes standard. Both versions of the Ford Fusion feature regenerative braking, which helps replenish some of the battery charges. Also, with the Ford Fusion Energi, you can plug into an electrical outlet or charging station, refilling the battery when not using the car.

An electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (eCVT) transfers power from the engine and motor to the front wheels. It makes for smooth delivery, so you're not noticing gear transitions, helping everyone to stay comfortable.

Safety

You can rest easy, knowing the Ford Fusion Hybrid and Ford Fusion Energi both come loaded with an amazing array of safety features. For example, the vehicle features side curtain airbags for the first and second row, individual tire pressure monitoring and an SOS Post-Crash Alert system.

If you want even more protection, Ford offers inflatable rear safety belts. They spread out crash forces on passengers' bodies, reducing the risk of injury.

Comfort

Drivers and passengers alike are treated to several standard features that keep them comfortable and happy, even during long trips. Among them is dual-zone automatic climate control, rear air vents, centre arm rests for both rows and power door locks, to name just a few.

As a vehicle truly made for modern drivers and passengers, the Ford Fusion Hybrid and Ford Fusion Energi both come with three 12-volt power points. This makes charging up smartphones, tablets or whatever else on the go far easier. Two are positioned in the front, with one in the backseat area.

Adding the optional reverse sensing system means you can back up with greater confidence. Ultrasonic sensors embedded in the rear bumper give an audible alert if an object is near the rear portion of the car.
