C-Max, and Fusion Hybrid Fail In Delivering Expected Fuel Economy: Consumer Repo

A recent report by Consumer Reports magazine has indicated that Ford Motor Co's (F. N) C-Max and Fusion hybrids have not been able to deliver what was expected as they have shown a drop of 20% in terms of fuel economy. It has further been elaborated in the magazine that the Fusion hybrid produced 39 miles per gallon both on the highway and in city driving, while the C-Max could deliver a combined 37 miles per gallon.

As per the standard set by Ford and the Environmental Protection Agency of 47 miles per gallon, both failed miserably, thereby failing in the parameter. "These two vehicles have the largest discrepancy between our overall-mpg results and the estimates published by the EPA that we've seen among any current models", said Consumer Reports.

With the report grabbing the attention of the market, it has been claimed that there are factors like driving styles, driving conditions etc which influence the mileage, thereby showing poor performance.

Meanwhile, Ford, which has been trying to raise the bar of its lineup in terms of fuel efficiency for the last six years, has come out to say that C-Max and Fusion hybrid drivers have apparently shared a range of fuel economy figures, which includes over 47 miles per gallon.
