Why a Ford Hybrid is Right for You

For environmentally-conscious consumers, driving can seem like a major step backwards when it comes to protecting our planet. However, with a brand like Ford, the future of driving continues to look a whole lot greener with their hybrid and electric models. Ford has a science-based climate change strategy in place that focuses on reducing harmful greenhouse emissions in order to neutralize our carbon footprint. Their sustainable technologies and alternative fuel plans are just one of the ways in which the brand is making strides to clean up the environment all over the world. Ford’s 2016 and 2017 hybrid models are the perfect example of modern environmental progress. Of their newer lineups, we’ve taken the 2017 Ford Fusion Energi and outlined what makes it a phenomenal choice for drivers in Truro, Nova Scotia.

A New Level of Power

The all-new 2017 Ford Fusion Energi demands respect from everyone on the road. Available in 5 exceptionally stunning models ranging from gas to hybrid to plug-in hybrid, your driving needs are covered from every angle. Three powerful EcoBoost engines are available on the new Fusion Energi including the 1.5L, now with standard Auto Start-Stop Technology; the 2.0L; and new to Fusion V6 Sport, the 2.7L EcoBoost. No matter which engine you go with, each combines three efficient technologies--turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT)--to deliver more power than ever before.

The Fusion Energi Hybrid is built with SmartGauge with EcoGuide, which analyzes real time data base don your driving habits to deliver an efficiency report. The Fusion Energi Plug-in Hybrid comes with a gas engine and a lithium-ion battery that opens up a whole new world of charging options. With a 120V convenience charge code also available, you’ll never run out of power. One of the biggest highlights on the hybrid Fusion Energi models is the Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) which automatically adjusts to deliver the utmost control when and where you need it. EPAS includes drift control technology which identifies compromisable surface road conditions and adjusts as required. On the outside, available LED headlights, taillights and fog lights light your way in even the darkest conditions and increase efficiency for your vehicle.

So Stylish, Inside and Out

On the outside, the new 2017 Ford Fusion Energi looks like more of a luxury car. For starters, a new front fascia featuring a wider and more angular grille, multiple chrome accents and a new rear fascia give the Fusion Energi a whole new look. The LED fog lights, headlamps and taillamps are also completely new this year. For those who think hybrid vehicles mean a sacrifice in design, you’re mistaken! The inside of the new Fusion Energi is packed with versatile cargo configurations and plenty of modern luxuries, like a reworked centre console and a series of colour and trim packages to suit your personal preferences. Available SYNC3 and SYNC Connect let you stay connected on the go, with all of your favourite apps, music, and more via your smartphone. Plus, you can even monitor your fuel levels, and start, stop and unlock your vehicle virtually with this unique feature.
