Ford taking orders on new hybrid utility vehicle
"C-MAX Hybrid offers better fuel economy, performance, technology and functionality than Prius v - and C-MAX Hybrid customers will pay less at the dealership and at the pump," said Ken Czubay, vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. "Ford is delivering the power of choice for leading fuel economy across its lineup - from EcoBoost to electrified vehicles - because customers increasingly want to save money at the pump, even as gas prices rise over time," he said.
As part of the strategy, Ford also has elected to drop with Hybrid Escappe from its line up with introduction of then new 2013 Ford Escape. By Joseph Szczesny
