Way better than a Prius!
My last 4 cars were Priuses, my wife also drives a Prius. Her first response when she drove my C-Max was, "WOW!" I wanted a plug in, but the Prius plug in wasn't available yet in my state (plus, it's about 8 grand more than I paid for my C-Max), so I took a look at the C-Max Energi. SO GLAD I DID! I LOVE THIS CAR! It is better than the Prius in every possible way, except, possibly, reliability, which in the Prius is legendary, the C-Max could be too, just haven't had it long enough to know. It is faster, more quiet, much more comfortable, and the deal I got was unbelievable (especially when you include the $4,500 refundable federal tax credit!). I'm also getting more miles per charge than advertised, as much as 28 miles. Update: now that the cold weather has arrived, the range is down to about 16 miles, but I'm still averaging 76 mpg through the first 17,000 miles. You can charge it at home, fully charges overnight, with a regular outlet, as best we can tell, it cost about $20 per month in electricity, and, lucky for me, I have fast chargers available to me for free at my work (fully charges in just over 2 hours). I cannot recommend this car more highly! Crazy thing is, I never see any on the road? Ford, clearly, isn't doing a good enough job marketing this car, it blows the Prius away, and I know what I'm talking about, between my wife and me, we've had seven, never thought I'd by any other car.
Get one while they last!
I just bought a C-MAX Energi and compared it to a 2017 Prius V and drove a 2013 Prius before. I never thought that I would even think about "fun" when driving a car until I drove the Prius V and realized what I was missing, it dives like a van and acceleration is non-existant. The C-Max is very different, it can drive it like my 200hp Passat, then the milage drops considerably but there is also the option to drive it more carefully and Ford has integrated a lot of tools to monitor efficiency with to get very good mpg. For me it's the perfect compromise of both worlds, although the mpg is somewhat lower than a Prius. Interior quality is much better than a Prius V and the regular Prius's outside is just hideous, IMO. - The plug-in Energi will be discontinued in 2018 and eventually be replaced by an Escape version (according to Ford). Currently the price for the C-Max Energi are below the regular hybrid after the tax deduction. The price will be largely influenced by the extras since the discounts are not applied on these. I decided I needed heated seats (cold weather package $300) and the reversing sensors and camera with bigger screen (package 401A $1200) you can get both and leather seats with package 402A ($1600). I stayed away from the Navigation which is another $800 since this is included in every phone and thus useless since the C-Max support both apple carplay and android auto.
Great gas mileage
Where do I start? Well I've had hybrids since my 2006 Ford Excape sold after 135,000 trouble free miles and average from new mileage of 43.2mpg. While still owning that car I bought a 2010 Ford Fusion, another great trouble free car with an average since new mileage of 45.3 mpg. Now to the Great little CMax what a great car. Words can't explain the potential of this plug in Hybrid. To start I have 26,120 miles and have used 204.2 gallons of gas. Doing the math shows the mileage that is possible, it has achieved 127.9 mpg since new. My best tank of gas was 334 mpg and my worst tank was 32mpg. My current tank has 2,213 miles and I am at half tank; the odometer has it at 245.8 mpg. This tank is slightly less than half, It looks like I may beat my best tank. I typically go around 30 miles on a charge. I have gone on a Sunday drive as far as 51 miles, while trying to see how far I could go. This 51 miles on a charge did take a lot of hyper mileing and slow speeds out on rural country roads. During the hot summer months in Oklahoma the battery still goes around 15+ miles on a charge. For anyone living in a small town or large city this is a car to consider. It is not at it's best on the freeways. Typically it gets around 40+ mpg on the open road. In city highways with a lot of stop and go it shines well over 60 mpg. Reading some test drives it seems that their purpose is to only focus on the low side of what the car can do. If you live less than 30 miles from your work and it does not include any high speed freeway driving you can go to and from work on one charge, this is a fact. I was so impressed with this car I purchased my wife a 2017 Fusion Energi. She has 3,125 miles and has used 50.7 gallons which is 61.6 mpg which is a 50/50 mix of driving on freeway and town. Her best tank so far was over 100 mpg and her worst was 34mpg. All I can say is this is a great car for anyone that wants to save on fuel and it does not take any trick driving to get great mileage. It will easily go 80 mph in all electric for a short distance, the trick is to not try to drive electric on the freeway save the battery for city driving by putting the car in EV later. I know of drivers that have gone over 11,000 miles on electric only. The ski is the limit if you really want to get a fun to drive little electric capable vehicle.
