2013 Ford Hybrid Sales are Already Breaking Records

At Elk Grove Ford, we've noticed many of our Sacramento area drivers are turning over a new leaf with a greener transportation mode. But switching to an eco-friendly new Ford isn't just a growing trend restricted to California. The movement is nationwide and evident in the automaker's groundbreaking hybrid sales of 2013 so far-- which already surpass those of 2010 in its entirety.

In 2010, Ford wrapped up the year with a full-year hybrid sales record of 35,496 units sold. Though a few years ago, the concept of a more environmentally conscious car was still very fresh and the allure of a hybrid model paled in comparison to bigger vehicles with equally large powertrains. Much has changed since then.

Now almost a full six months into 2013 and Ford has already met and exceeded that longstanding full-year record. The skyrocketing sales spurts can be credited to many things. Hybrid technology has improved significantly, allowing drivers to get the best of both worlds: power and fuel-efficiency. Additionally, Ford's diverse and vast hybrid lineup is unmatched by other brands but has a match to accommodate every type of lifestyle.

Ford's herd of hybrids include:

  • 2013 C-Max Hybrid
  • 2013 C-Max Energy
  • 2013 Fusion Hybrid
  • 2013 Fusion Energi

Accounting for an overwhelming 67 percent of the year's hybrid sales is the Fusion Hybrid. Its 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to an electric motor and lithium-ion battery delivers a satisfying 188 horsepower. The Ford's EPA-estimated 47 mpg combined is the best fuel-economy of any midsize hybrid sedan.
