2010 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan Hybrids to Go Up to 47 MPH on Electricity Alone

Yesterday Ford officially unveiled the new 2010 Ford Fusion with a new face and new engines. Today we have more information about the hybrid versions of the Fusion and Mercury Milan.

The biggest news about the new hybrids is that they will have the ability to reach speeds up to 47 mph on the electric motor alone. The hybrids will also be able to travel up to 8 miles before the gas motor kicks in. Ford calls the two hybrids their most technologically advanced production vehicles ever made.

The hybrids are powered by a 155 HP 2.5L 4-cyl mated to an electric motor. Ford claims that they will get up to 5 mpg more in the city than the Camry hybrid, which gets 33/34mpg.

The Fusion and Milan hybrids will enter production late this year and be introduced early next year.
