The Ford Fusion and Ford Focus have created a brand new following thanks to the hybrid and electric models. The latest are the 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid, the 2015 Ford Fusion Energi and the 2015 Ford Focus Electric 5-Door Hatchback. Each model offers maximum efficiency without sacrificing performance. All have multiple trim levels for the style and features you want. In addition, the 2015 Ford C-MAX offers similar benefits in a slightly different style with the 2015 Ford C-MAX Hybrid and 2015 Ford C-MAX Energi.

Notice that both exterior and interior design are very similar on the two Fusion models with only slight differences while the 2015 C-MAX models have a more compact profile. The 2015 Ford Focus Electric 5-Door Hatchback is unique with its hatch styling. Sleek lines combine with the elegant front grille and the sporty LED taillights for sophisticated profiles on both the 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid and 2015 Ford Fusion Energi. A shortened and sloped front end on the 2015 Ford C-MAX Hybrid and Energi make it easy to fit in tight parking spaces. Cabin features are also similar with slight differences like the standard leather shift knob and leather-wrapped steering wheel on the Energi, Focus Electric and both C-MAX models are optional on the Hybrid. All models include SYNC® with MyFord®.

The real difference lies under the hoods of the 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid, 2015 Ford Fusion Energi, 2015 Ford Focus Electric 5-Door Hatchback and the 2015 Ford C-MAX. The Fusion and C-MAX models use the 2.0L Atkinson-Cycle engine with electric motor, but the Fusion Energi and C-MAX Energi have the plug-in version. Enjoy enhanced electric performance on both of the Energi models with the 7.6 kWh Plug-in Hybrid Lithium-ion battery while the two Hybrid models uses the 1.4 kWh version. For the 2015 Ford Focus Electric 5-Door Hatchback, a 107 kW electric motor provides the sole power source.
