Speed Read: Ford Fusion Energi

FusionFeat
I've never been a huge fan of traditional hybrid vehicles. The tradeoffs between driving dynamics and efficiency are usually huge, and require a completely different style of driving than traditional gasoline or diesel vehicles to achieve maximum mileage. In many non-purpose built hybrids, the bump in price over the gasoline versions will never be realized in fuel savings because they simply aren't that much better economy wise. Thankfully, there are a few vehicles emerging on the market that eliminate most hybrid shortcomings. One such vehicle is the Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid. 15Fusion_Energi_SE_A_FINAL The Ford Fusion Energi is a plug-in hybrid version of the excellent Fusion sedan. The Energi model can be plugged in and charged to give it the capability to operate entirely in electric mode. The Fusion Energi took about 8 hours to achieve a full charge on standard 120v power. The EPA says the electric range on a full charge is 21 miles, however that will vary greatly based on environmental conditions and the number of in-car accessories being used. In the week that I had the Fusion Energi, temperatures were in the low-90s, so the air conditioner was always working overtime. 20140627_205849409_iOS My real world observations showed a pure EV range  between 12-13 miles. Adding in the regen miles yielded an electric only range of about 15.5 miles (mixed street and highway driving) before kicking on the gasoline engine.  That might not seem like a lot at first, but the Fusion Energi real world numbers best the EPA rated 11 mile EV range of the Toyota Prius PHEV. My commute is a 27 mile drive, split about 50/50 on side roads and 70+ mph highway driving. As mentioned previously, I observed about 15 miles on EV power, with the remaining miles on blended hybrid/gasoline power. The result was an impressive 46 - 50 miles per gallon during my commute, depending on the conditions. The overall week average was 47.9 mpg. 20140701_112704991_iOS Keeping up with traffic on 70mph highways when running on pure electric power was as effortless. The brakes take a bit of getting used to, as is the case with all hybrids that use regenerative braking. Of course, the harder you drive, the less EV range you'll end up with. There is a noticeable transition when the gasoline engine kicks in, but only because the Fusion Energi is absolutely silent when running in EV mode. While the Fusion Energi isn't as fun to drive as the standard Fusion, it still provides a very comfortable driving experience.The additional heft of the hybrid system can definitely be felt during hard cornering maneuvers, but Fusion Energi owners probably won't be doing much of that in the real world anyway. 15Fusion_Energi_Titan_IntBlckLthr_mj While my experience with the Fusion Energi was largely positive, there are still a couple of issues that need to be addressed. One of the biggest drawbacks of the Fusion Energi is the trunk space. The electric motor and batteries are located in the rear of the vehicle below the trunk floor, resulting in an abysmal and awkwardly shaped 8.2 cubic feet of trunk space. That's half the size of the standard Fusion. The second big issue is the price of the Fusion Energi. The Fusion Energi SE starts at $34,700, while our Titanium tester came in at $45,120.  On its own, that doesn't seem too terrible considering the high level of tech, amenities, and quality of materials in the Fusion Energi. The problem is that the Fusion Hybrid SE starts at only $27,280 and provides nearly the same mixed driving economy numbers and a more usable trunk. So, would I buy a Fusion Energi? Well, that's a simple question with a complicated answer. I absolutely love the entire Ford Fusion lineup. It's a great car, with a great driving experience throughout the entire line. The Fusion is simply one of the best mid-sized sedans on the market today and I would absolutely recommend it to someone shopping for a new sedan. The complication comes in deciding which Fusion to buy. If you drive less than 15 miles a day and don't care about the price of admission, the Fusion Energi would be a great choice; unless of course you actually have to haul people and luggage. In any other scenario, the Fusion Hybrid SE would be the one to buy for someone concerned with fuel economy, price, and practicality.The Fusion Hybrid SE gets you an EPA rated 44 mpg and a bigger trunk, at a significantly lower price than the Fusion Energi. If it were me though, I'd pocket the extra money and buy the excellent gasoline powered Ford Fusion. The gasoline powered Fusion SE starts at only $23,935 which is a whopping $10,765 cheaper than the Energi model. Ed. Note: Ford announced this week that they have taken the #1 spot in PHEV sales for the month of July. 

Ford Motor Company took over the No. 1 spot in plug-in hybrid vehicle sales of the Ford Fusion Energi and Ford C-MAX Energi in October, outpacing sales of the Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid vehicle.

Ford sold 2,179 Fusion Energi and C-MAX Energi vehicles last month, accounting for 34 percent of the total plug-in hybrid market. Toyota sold 2,095 units of its Prius plug-in hybrid vehicle.

It is Ford’s best month ever for plug-in hybrid sales, shattering the previous record of 1,508 vehicles sold in September, a 45 percent increase. Ford’s plug-in hybrid vehicles – Fusion Energi and C-MAX Energi – hit this sales milestone just one year after introduction of C-MAX Energi and less than a year since launch of Fusion Energi.

California continues to account for 38 percent of all Ford plug-in hybrid vehicle sales, but plug-ins are strengthening in the midwestern and eastern regions. New York, Boston, Detroit, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia combine to make up 32 percent of the C-MAX Energi market. Those same cities make up 34 percent of the market for Fusion Energi. New York alone comes close to unseating San Francisco as the second most popular market for Fusion Energi.. Plug-in hybrid sales for the industry are up 32 percent year-to-date. The industry sold 39,083 vehicles through October, compared to 29,526 vehicles in 2012. October plug-in hybrid sales came within 40 units of setting an all-time monthly record for the segment.

Driven: 2014 Lexus RX450h

2013_2014_Lexus_RX_350_006_opt
You could be forgiven for thinking it’s a bit late in the Lexus RX’s model life cycle for us to review it; after all, these pages are usually devoted to freshly restyled or all-new metal. But in fact, though this platform’s basic bones stretch back to the 2010 model year, the RX received a heavy refresh for 2013 that brought it right up to date against others in the entry-level luxury crossover segment. We've covered the normal RX350 before on these pages, but never the full-zoot RX450h hybrid version. What makes this CUV a perennial class sales leader? Read on for a look. SAMSUNG CSC Exterior: The RX was one of the first Lexuses shown with the new corporate Predator® spindle grille design, and while it seemed radical when it debuted, just two short model years in market (and plenty of subsequent real-world sightings) have made the new design almost blase, unassuming. Its styling is certainly tamed by the silver paint, non-F-Sport fascia, and smaller wheels of our tester…but the shape will still be familiar to many and offensive to almost none. SAMSUNG CSC Interior Design/Equipment/Tech: I've become quite fond of Lexus’s recent crop of interior designs, and the RX’s is no different. There are subtly upscale materials on offer, a good driving position, ergonomic sensibility and an abundance of room for people and objects alike. The front seats in particular are extremely comfortable, and the cascading center stack and armrest form a cockpit-like environment for the driver, something keen drivers like me probably wouldn't expect in a vehicle of this type. Ergonomics are good, so everything you use frequently falls easily to hand, and while Lexus’s haptic feedback “mouse” for controlling the infotainment system has hitherto been mostly panned in the press, I’m one of its staunchest supporters – I find it to be leagues better during actual on-road operation than rival systems from BMW and Cadillac. The only thing in here that you might miss is a tachometer, in its place a power/eco/charge gauge familiar to anyone who’s driven a Toyota hybrid product before. Though with a CVT being the only transmission available, you’re not going to need a tach anyway. SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC Powertrain: The RX450h is available in both front-wheel and all-wheel-drive variants (ours was front-driven), though both are tugged around by the same combination of Toyota-ubiquitous 3.5-liter 2GR-FE V6, 37kWh battery pack, and electric motors. The combo’s good enough for 295 total horsepower, a bonus of 25 horsepower over the RX350, though with 342 extra pounds to tote around, any accelerative benefits are easily negated. In the real world, the 450h has enough power, but it probably doesn’t feel all of its nearly 300 horsepower because of a soft, eco-minded throttle calibration and the 4,520 pounds it has to carry. Still, after returning 28 mpg over more than 300 miles of mixed city/highway commuting conditions, it’s hard to argue against the hybrid powertrain’s execution. SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC Ride/Handling: The RX isn’t engineered for driving thrills or back road enjoyment, plain and simple. That’s not a ding against it, simply an observation. If you want a relatively more “buttoned-down” feel for the road with your RX, choose the RX350 F-Sport I drove last year. Personally, I’ll trade the F-Sport’s firmer ride for the 450h’s more cosseting, isolated nature – it’s a luxury crossover, after all, not an LF-A. As such, I never felt compelled to push the 450h to its outer grip limits, so I can’t report on handling neutrality or degrees of understeer. I suspect most owners would concur. SAMSUNG CSC SAMSUNG CSC Driving Experience: Aside from a slightly sluggish throttle tip-in, which to its credit does make it fairly easy to keep the RX450h in electric-only mode when under 30 mph, the driving experience is largely positive. The aforementioned ride is smooth and exceedingly quiet, the only noise entering the cabin being that of the V6 when full grunt is summoned. Because of the CVT, revs will sit in the midrange or higher until your desired speed is reached, not mimicking a traditional auto with stepped gear ratios like many CVT manufacturers are now doing. Still, at least what little sound there is happens to be of the "muted V6 growl" variety instead of a strained four-banger. SAMSUNG CSC Value: Great fuel economy is a hallmark of Toyota/Lexus hybrid products, and the story’s no different here. Our 28.2 mile-per-gallon average amounted to a significant 7 mpg increase over the standard RX350 I drove previously. A quick run of the numbers shows that you’d still need to drive nearly 150,000 miles before the hybrid’s $6,650 price penalty was recouped through fuel savings alone, though in the current luxury car marketplace, there is also a certain intangible value for anything with a Hybrid badge that rises above mere dollars and sense. Coupled with the fact that many of these cars are leased and not purchased for the long-term, the slight monthly payment increase for a 450h starts to make sense against the fuel cost savings you'll see around town. Moreover, for the lux crossover shopper that must also have a hybrid, the RX450 exacts no penalty in driving experience for the luxury of visiting the pumps less often. SAMSUNG CSC [gallery ids="10265,10266,10267,10262,10263,10264,10278,10270,10274,10273,10269,10277,10276,10271,10272,10268"] 2014 Lexus RX450h Base price: $47,320 Price as tested: $56,445 Options on test car: Dual-screen rear seat DVD system, Navigation system, Backup camera & App suite package ($4,920), Heated and ventilated front seats ($640), Mark Levinson premium sound ($995), Premium Package ($2,570) Powertrain: 3.5-liter V6 engine, 37 kWh Ni-MH battery pack and twin front electric motor units, continuously variable transmission, front-wheel drive – 295 combined system horsepower S:S:L-observed fuel economy: 28.2 mpg Lexus provided the vehicle for testing purposes and one tank of gas.

Keys of the Week: 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited

40490_1_1 As I drive around in the latest iteration of VW’s American-market Passat, now featuring the 1.8 TSI engine, driving impressions of the outgoing 2014 Sonata in Hybrid guise – a car I drove the week prior - flashed into my mind. The Sonata that this 2014 Hybrid is based on was introduced back in 2009, and the newly revised 2015 Sonata will be hitting dealerships around the time you read this (though the Hybrid version soldiers on in current form until a new one bows for 2016). 40468_1_1 Though the Passat was new for the 2012 model year, it too is an old guard among the current mid-size sedan crowd – the Accord, Fusion, Mazda 6, Altima, Malibu and 200 are all newer. And while the Sonata Hybrid and Passat 1.8T appear quite different on paper, they’re remarkably comparable in the real world; especially when it comes down to price. 40491_1_1 For an in-depth review of the current Sonata Hybrid, you can find my extended write-up of the 2013 model here. Changes to the 2014 are few, limited to some minor interior enhancements like a color touchscreen audio display, a backup camera, and LED dome lights. Changes in programming now allow the Hybrid to run in electric-only mode at highway speeds when appropriate, though that didn’t translate into a discernable difference at the pumps, with the 2014 averaging 34.1 MPG in my hands to the 2013’s 35.0. Different driving conditions are likely at the root of the disparity. 40479_1_1 That’s still plenty respectable economy for a mid-size sedan that requires little in the way of sacrifice for the Hybrid treatment, but even the non-hybrids of this class can approach low 30s in mixed driving by way of naturally aspirated and small-displacement turbocharged four-cylinders. You also won’t have to put up with the Sonata’s, ahem, distinctly hybrid-like brake and steering feel that I touched on last year. 40478_1_1 Elsewhere, the Sonata is better resolved from a driver’s perspective. Take-off is eerily quiet thanks to electrified propulsion, and even when the gas engine does kick on, the transition is seamless and silent. You won’t feel penalized for ticking the hybrid option box when you put the hammer down, either – there’s enough grunt on tap to easily keep pace with fast-moving traffic. The six-speed automatic is well programmed, and earns brownie points from me simply for not being a CVT. And the ride-and-handling balance feels better resolved than the Passat I’ll review next week - though the Sonata’s LRR tires dissolve into understeer far sooner than normal all-seasons. 40475_1_1 As a value proposition, the Sonata Hybrid stands up quite well, which prompted its comparison to the Passat SEL in the first place. The VW rang in at $31,715, just a grand shy of the Sonata’s $32,685 sticker. Were it not for the $1,000 panoramic sunroof of our tester, the two would be priced within spitting distance of one another. However, in the Hy-Hy (Hyundai Hybrid) you get real-world economy that shades the Passat’s, a lengthier standard equipment list and an arguably “tech-ier” driving experience. The Passat counters with enough trunk and rear seat room to support a fledgling limo business. 40473_1_1 There’s still plenty to like here, even though the new Sonata is around the corner – proof of just how solid the work that Hyundai did on this generation was, as well as how pivotal this car has been to the brand’s image revival.   [gallery ids="10174,10173,10172,10171,10170,10169,10168"] 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited Base price: $31,560 Price as tested: $32,685 Options on test car: Panoramic sunroof ($1,000), Floor mats ($125) Powertrain: 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, 270V lithium polymer battery, permanent magnet electric motor, six-speed automatic transmission, front-wheel drive – 199 combined system horsepower S:S:L-observed fuel economy: 34.1 mpg Hyundai provided the vehicle for testing purposes and one tank of gas.

Driven: 2014 Toyota Prius

IMG_5077-2
IMG_5077-2 I’ve admitted on these pages before to not being the World’s Greatest Hybrid Fan. Yeah, I can see their purpose, and although their net impact on global sustainability remains questionable and hotly debated, I do at least understand that a reduced dependence on fossil fuels is a goal we should all be working toward. If in the near term we accomplish that by building vehicles with battery packs that greatly reduce fuel consumption, so be it. But that still hasn’t burnished a place in my heart for the Prius as a vehicle I would recommend to my friends when they ask me, the car guy in their lives, for advice. IMG_5080-5 That could be starting to change, though. For a little background, this is now the fourth Toyota-built hybrid vehicle I’ve driven for our website. I tend to receive a fair number of the Japanese automaker’s vehicles from the local press pool, and over time (as is probably the goal) they’ve started to cement a case for themselves in the cold light of weekday commuting duty. Especially in America’s great outposts of suburban sprawl, like my native Tampa Bay, there are fewer and fewer roads on which to enjoy a fun car during one’s daily commute – most of my route to work and back is straight, clogged and flat as a board. Why grind through it to the tune of mileage in the mid-20s when you can have the same level of comfort and practicality at twice the economy? IMG_5074-1 Such was my mindset after the week in the Prius. Point-A-to-Point-B appliancedom has always been the Prius’ forte. It’s not fun to drive, at least from a driving enthusiast’s perspective. The steering offers nil for feel and the cornering, while pleasantly flat, is light on grip from the efficiency-minded LRR tires and never tempts you to explore the limits. Likewise, the brake pedal exhibits that classic hybrid elasticity as it jumps between slowing the car and recovering energy for the batteries. Dialed back to the type of daily driving 95% of us do, the Prius shines. The ride is smooth and, surprisingly for what many would consider an economy car, the cabin is hushed at speed. The only noise that really makes itself known is that of the powertrain when you dip the pedal into the “power” range on the dash consumption meter. IMG_5082-1 Hybrids have a way of forcing a heavy right foot to buckle under the pressure of the various dashboard doo-dads monitoring your instant and average economy, tempting you into greater and greater returns on your last investment at the gas pump. I decided to turn all of that stuff off this time around, and drive the thing the way I try to drive every car – with gusto. That means hitting the “POWER” button on the dash by the gear selector every time I started the car up, thereby returning more acceleration for a given prod of the throttle. I figured when I tallied up my efficiency report card at the end of the week, I’d see mileage in the high 30s or somewhere thereabouts. Maybe I’d crack 40 if I was lucky. IMG_5078-3 The result? 47.1 MPG. That’s just about bang on the money for Toyota’s claimed economy numbers (51 city/48 highway/50 combined), which I almost never hit regardless of vehicle. The fact that I achieved it without trying to keep that efficiency meter in the black just speaks to the car’s engineering. That it also managed to be comfortable for four, quiet at speed, have a killer A/C system that kept the cabin chilled even during a week of early-summer Florida humidity, a pretty decent stereo, plus a nice-sized cargo area, and I now realize that I’d be hard-pressed to recommend a better car for someone with a budget around $25 grand and no interest in “dynamics”, but instead sturdy, reliable, roomy and comfortable transportation that also happens to blow other compacts and midsizers away when it's time to fill up the tank. For a commuter, you can’t ask for much more than that, really.

Inside, australia, uk, us, usa, Where can i order Cephalexin without prescription, the Sonata remains a nice place to spend time, confirming for me that the design that seemed so ahead of its time in 2010 (and a leap forward in interiors for Hyundai back then) has aged well, buy Cephalexin without a prescription, Cephalexin maximum dosage, despite being on the market for nearly four years.

IMG_4082 Cephalexin For Sale, The Sonata suffers a bit in the EPA ratings against the Ford and the Honda, with estimates of 36 miles per gallon on the highway and 40 in the city against the brand new Honda’s 50/45 ratings and the Ford’s 47 all around. I achieved 35 mpg overall in my time with the car, nothing to shrug at, as I’m not known to be overly judicious with my right foot. On the whole, it's a valiant first attempt at hybridization for Hyundai's midsize sedan. The fact that the Sonata provides a solid platform to start with is evident in the way the Hybrid conducts itself. A few inherent gas-electric personality quirks aside, I'm sure the Sonata Hybrid would provide enough shoppers in the market with a compelling reason to save a few bucks over a comparable Ford or Honda.
