Ford Fusion Energi is a platinum-grade plug-in

Ford Motor Co. has added another plug-in hybrid passenger car to its growing fleet of alternative fuel vehicles. It’s a Fusion Platinum Energi, which joins Ford’s Fusion, C-Max and Focus family of fully or partly electrified vehicles. Taking the company’s hybrid effort to a new level of luxury, it’s now the leading edge of a fleet of 13 new electrics Ford says it will put on the road by 2020.

Ford boasts that the Platinum Energi’s 610-mile combined gas and battery power range, up from 550 miles on the 2016 model, is the industry’s highest. It’s almost triple the range, Ford crows, of the highly anticipated Tesla Model 3 and its proposed 215 miles of all-electric range.

Ford says the Energi can travel 21 miles on battery electric power before the gasoline engine kicks in. An overnight plug-in is required to bring it back to full power.

The industry pitch on hybrids is simple: You can drive around on battery power, and cover most of your driving needs, then recharge while your car sits idle at work or at home. Many drivers will be able to complete their daily commutes without ever having to visit a gas station.
