Ford C-Max Delivers EPA-Certified 570-Mile Range

Ford’s new C-Max Hybrid is pushing the company’s fuel efficient agenda and it has gained an EPA rated 570 miles range on a single tank of fuel.

The hybrid is rated at 47 mpg in both the city and on the highway, which gives the C-Max the best fuel economy in its segment. That means that on a single tank of fuel, you can travel from Los Angeles to Vegas and back again.

Running the C-Max Hybrid is a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle I-4 gas engine teamed with a high-voltage lithium-ion battery and CVT transmission to optimize fuel economy. Ford is quick to point out that the C-Max Hybrid beats out the Toyota Prius V by 7 mpg, and undercuts it by $1,300 with a starting price of $25,995.

“The all-new C-MAX Hybrid is a great symbol of how Ford has transformed into a fuel-economy and technology leader with 47 mpg across the board and a highway rating 7 mpg better than Toyota Prius v,” said Ford VP of powertrain engineering Joe Bakaj. “We’ve done this with innovation – represented by nearly 500 hybrid patents – while driving costs down 30 percent so we can bring these fuel-saving vehicles to more customers.”

Inside the C-Max, the driver can make use of  the SmartGauge with EcoGuide system which is an eco-driving coach, helping you to get the best fuel economy possible.
