Test Drive Ford’s New Lineup of Green Vehicles at San Francisco Green Festival

The Focus Electric is the first five-passenger all-electric vehicle to achieve a combined fuel efficiency rating of more than 100 miles per gallon. The all-electric Focus is capable of fully recharging in just four hours – charging in half the time of the Nissan Leaf and with a range of up to 76 miles. The zero-CO2-emissions, gasoline-free version of the popular small car from Ford is the flagship of the company’s growing fleet of electric vehicles.

Ford C-MAX Hybrid uses a powertrain system that combines the best attributes of the gasoline engine and electric battery-driven motor. This combination delivers an impressive driving experience in both performance and fuel economy, and it is targeting to achieve better fuel economy than the Toyota Prius v with 47 MPG. But it doesn’t stop there. The C-MAX Hybrid is also less expensive than the Prius v and the regenerative braking system recaptures more than 95 percent of braking energy normally lost and uses that power to help charge the battery.

If that wasn’t enough, Ford is bringing along the all-new C-MAX Energi – the first five-passenger multi-activity vehicle with plug-in hybrid technology. This all-new vehicle delivers distinctive body design and a flexible interior, along with the next generation of Ford’s acclaimed power-split technology that will allow operation in electric mode at higher speeds than any other hybrid. The C-MAX Energi is expected to deliver better fuel economy than the Toyota Prius with a 500-mile overall driving range – more than the Chevrolet Volt.

To learn more about how Ford is looking to the future of personal mobility and how sustainable materials are being incorporated into their current and future electrified fleet, Ford will have John Viera (Global Director of Sustainability and Vehicle Environmental Matters) speak at the San Francisco Green Festival. Join John Viera on the Drive Green Stage in the Ford Pavilion at 12:30pm and 4:00pm on November 10th and 11th.
