Ford’s new 2013 C-MAX Hybrid just launched and its already outselling its closest competitor, the Toyota Prius v. Ford has announced that in its first full sales month, the C-MAX Hybrid outsold the Prius v, 3,182 units to 2,769.
“The new C-MAX is off to a fast start in the heart of the hybrid market, not only outselling Prius v, but drawing a lot of interested Toyota customers who chose our new hybrid instead,” says C.J. O’Donnell, manager, Ford Electrified Vehicles. “Customers now come into our showrooms for fuel economy, and we’re delivering with six vehicles that offer 40 mpg or better, including the new C-MAX Hybrid at 47 mpg combined, with another two on the way by year’s end.”
“The C-MAX Hybrid is winning over customers with its best-in-class passenger room, smart technologies and leading fuel economy,” says O’Donnell. “And its $25,995 price tag gives customers the value they are looking for without having to make the typical compromises that have defined most hybrids until now.”
The plug-in hybrid version of the C-MAX, the 2013 C-MAX Energi is also now available at Ford EV-certified dealers in half the states across the country.
