Ford C-Max Hybrid and Energi

All eyes were on Ford as they unveiled the new 2012 C-MAX Hybrid and Energi at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Geared toward the modern couple wishing to grow their family while reducing their carbon footprint and save a bucks in the process, the multi-passenger vehicle promises high mileage and low emissions.

Sporty, fuel-efficient, and just plain cool, the C-Max is definitely not your typical minivan. Let's take a closer look:

  • Premiere motor - The C-Max showcases Ford's brand new 1.6-liter Ecoboost 4 cylinder engine, a fully aluminum motor boasting a twenty percent reduction in fuel consumption without sacrificing muscle. At 168 hp and 173 ft-lbs of torque, the C-Max packs an impressive punch. The Ford C-Max Hybrid, when it is offered in 2012 will have a power-split full hybrid system. The Ford C-Max Energi will be a plug-in hybrid with a 500-mile range and will achieve Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV) status.
  • Flexible seating options - Ford anticipated the skepticism that some may express about this compact van's seating capacity by dubbing it a "5+2" passenger rather than a full 7. While it is possible to squeeze seven people in, it wouldn't be a comfortable ride unless you had several small riders, which, in Ford's defense, you very well might if you're considering this automobile.
  • Muchos Cargo Space - The only thing supersized in this microvan is its cargo space. Virtually everything in the rear of the vehicle is foldable, allowing for plenty of space for stuff when you're short on passengers.
  • Intelligent Access - Ford's Intelligent Access system allows drivers to access and start the vehicle without the need for a key. Keyless entry and start-up and dual sliding doors are enhanced by an added entry feature-the automatic liftgate. A movement sensor situated underneath the bumper enables automatic opening, a nifty convenience for those times when you're carrying an armload of groceries to the car.
  • Modern-Day Bells and Whistles - The cutting-edge technology options available for this vehicle put to rest the allegations that the C-Max is a recycled version of old Mazda prototypes. Ford's version of an on-board, online directory is a system called SYNC that controls just about everything in the vehicle from climate control to navigation to entertainment options, and offers a highly desirable in-car mobile hotspot for surfing the Web on the go. Drivers and passengers can control the SYNC system by simply touching the 8-inch screen or activating it using voice commands.
  • Trendy Touches - There's a reason that the boxy minivan has a bad rap. Using what Ford calls a kinetic exterior design, the C-Max offers a sleeker, trendier alternative for families needing to graduate to a larger vehicle without the bigger gas bill associated with a large SUV. The C-Max's sculpted profile, low front-end, stylish headlamps, and subtle spoiler gives the vehicle just the right amount of glam without overdoing it.

The C-Max Hybrid and Energi are testimonies that the U.S. market is finally ready for meaningful change when it comes to driving new, high tech automobiles. While hybrids have been normalized over the past 10 years, plug-ins will follow the same route and the Ford C-Max will help us to get right where we are yearning to be.
