2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid: Breaking Even

April 06, 2011

We recently published an article that looks at break-even times for various hybrids. Hybrids are often more expensive than their gas-only equivalents and the break-even time is the length of time it takes for you to earn back this extra investment via fuel savings.

According to our calculations, it'll take a buyer 6.6 years to earn back the Fusion Hybrid's price premium relative to the equivalent, gas-only Fusion. Is break-even time something you consider, if you're a hybrid shopper?  

The hands-down winner (or loser) when it comes to loooooong break-even times is the Lexus LS 600h. In that case, you're looking at a whopping 121 years.
