2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid Will Be the Prettiest Hybrid Car in US Market

Ford Motor Co. is arguing that its 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid will be the prettiest hybrid car in the US market.

Larger than the previous year's Ford Fusion, it look completely different from its predecessor. It gives a mileage of 47 miles per gallon. The five seater car is second of the type after 2012 Toyota Prius which gives an inch higher mileage of 50 mpg.

The car employs latest ion-lithium battery that stores the electricity generated by car while it travels. It offers better safety equipment which is optional. It includes eight standard air bags, with two for knee, for the front seated persons those will avoid them from being injured during a frontal crash. A warning system is also included in the model that warns the driver whenever a frontal collision is possible.

The car is priced at $27, 995. The test car raked tons of compliments about its looks, particularly its exterior. It runs a 188 horsepower engine but is a super quite car.

Jim Tetreault, the Head of manufacturing in North America, said, "The objective to make (platforms) stronger, lighter, is always out there. The real challenge is trying to meld all of that together into a cohesive strategy. The goal posts keep moving".
