Energi won't run on battery alone - otherwise good

2013 Ford C-Max Energi SEL 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

Bought a 2013 model with 303a option. It is fine in most ways - power, comfort, build quality. However, what we discovered is that the EV only mode goes to zero as temperatures drop. In part this is due to use of heater/seat warmers. But as temperatures have increase in Maryland, EV mode has not returned and is still zero. The car goes automatically into hybrid mode. Gas mileage hovers around 35 mpg. Taking it to Ford dealer tomorrow...

Favorite Features

Most features are good - acceleration, handling, quality of interior. Trunk space is low - seats will need to be folded down occasionally.

Suggested Improvements

Ford needs to be clear about performance under different weather conditions. If the Energi can't provide EV mode under certain temperatures than people in colder climates should be aware that MPG will be much lower than estimates. That might affect their gas savings (and carbon saving) calculations...
