According to Car And Driver, the 2013 Ford Fusion Energi will have an entry price of $39,495 – and that’s before the $4,000 federal tax credit the Fusion Energi is eligible for. The entry level Fusion Energi SE plug-in hybrid and the $40,995 Fusion Energi Titanium model should offer a combined powertrain output similar to the C-max Energi which has 188 total horsepower from its gasoline and electric motors.
The non plug-in hybrid Fusion starts at $27,995 ($32,995 for the Titanium) so it’s a substantial price increase to go with the 2013 Fusion Energi model. The Fusion Energi comes with an all-electric range of around 20 miles, so it would take years of gas savings to even get close to paying off the Energi upgrade. To compare, the Ford C-max Energi starts at $32,950.
Ford has yet to confirm the pricing, but we expect to hear more from Ford at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show. If Ford doesn’t make any announcement there, they need to be made soon. Ford has said the Fusion Energi will go on sale around the start of 2013.
