The all-new 2013 Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid can travel 21 miles on electricity alone; it can travel up to 620 miles with a fully charged battery and a full tank of gas.

Ford claims its performance, as certified by the Environmental Protection Agency, exceeds that of the 2014 Honda Accord and Toyota Prius plug-ins. The Accord plug-in is on sale now in New York and California.

The Chevrolet Volt can go 38 miles on electricity alone, but its extended range is only 382 miles.

Fusion Energi has a top speed of 85 m.p.h. in electric-only mode, but the faster one drives, the shorter the electric-only range.

In terms of mileage, the Fusion Energi has an EPA-rating of the equivalent of 108 m.p.g. in city driving and 92 m.p.g. on the highway for a combined 100 m.p.g.e.

People that live in Oregon don't want one. They want to put a mileage tax on every that gets 50 or more miles per gallon.

Many things to think about,the mileage is great however what is the replacement cost for the battery,are there charging stations on the highway for long trips,what is the re- sale value of this vehicle and are you going to drive enough to save in fuel to off set the the price of this vehicle.

I see Ford execs still have a spelling problem. Back in the '60s they had a car called the "Galaxie". Misspellings were bad enough back then; today we have spell checkers. Learn to use them, guys, or your grade will be the same as your ticker symbol.

Too expensive. Drop the price and keep maintenance - battery replacements - affordable, and maybe they can get normal folks to sign on.
