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


I don't have a set drive to work. I travel all over the bay area with distances from 5 to 100 miles.
I find myself often running a 25 mile loop ending with a steep uphill quarter mile grade with about 5% battery left. I live in Northern California where the weather is extremely mild and I use the air conditioner less than 5% of the time.
The air conditioner sucks the battery up. I would not like this car if I needed it.

My overall time spent with the car I am averaging 120mpg. My electricity is free.

I also have a Volt. The volt is more efficient between 25 and 110 miles. I have found the C-max's ICE is a little more efficient.

Best Features

The backup features have saved me more than once. Hydrid mode is flawless to me. The Ford mobile ranking app!!!!

Worst Features

Better ICE MPG. It does not get the advertised hwy mpg. I drive 55-60 and get 44 mpg. I am clasified as an extreme hypermiller. Currently 3rd in the western region rankings on ford mobile
