When looking for fuel efficiency, running performance and style, the 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid has to be a top choice. Being a hybrid, it can be run on standard fuel as well as electricity. This new model has a great mix of electricity and gas for a power-train system car with its 41 MPG highway and 36 in-town.
The 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid has an innovative transition system that gives great coordination while consuming both electricity and gas. This car can actually run up to 47 MPH on electricity alone; which is nearly two times faster than any of its class competitors. With a full tank, it can go further than 700 miles, as it does not eat up gasoline greedily due to the improved gas consumption mechanism in its engine.
The 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid is cutting-edge in terms of engine technology and fuel economy, as said before. It uses an Atkinson-Cycle Hybrid - a four-cylinder 2.5-liter engine that has an electric motor, able to produce up to 191 horsepower giving it below average power. The 2012 Hybrid is actually a full hybrid car for the second-generation system. That means that the car is equipped with a battery engine that can supply up to 20% additional electric power compared to the first-generation hybrid cars manufactured by Ford. It uses an innovative power-split mechanism, providing great fuel economy with a constant variable power transmission, using two different motors. This provides optimal driving speed by the flow of energy from its engine and battery.
There are other ways that the 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid can provide great fuel economy for its consumers. Some of these ways include modifications to its inverters that can give higher than 90% better effectiveness to its electronic mechanisms. Additionally, it has an innovative system for climate control that uses an improved electric compressor for energy optimization.
Another great improvement to the 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid is its battery, which is equipped with an automatic energy converter and boosts power in just an instant. This makes the Fusion Hybrid faster and able to accelerate rapidly when the situation calls for it.
Ford has manufactured the 2012 Fusion Hybrid in an eco-friendly way. It is made out of 85% recycled materials, such as polyester fibers – although this isn’t to say that it’s composed of trash; to the contrary, it’s far from it. Just like its non-hybrid class, the 2012 Ford Fusion, this year’s model has also made safety a top priority, while achieving great safety ratings. Crash testing has shown impressive results.
The 2012 Ford Fusion is indeed an eco-friendly and fuel economic car, which often provides great safety and ease of driving, making this second generation Fusion a product of not only efficiency, but quality as well.
