The Green Car Journal must have been going for sexiness over utility when it picked its Green Car of the Year award. After all, the Ford C-MAX was also a contender. However, the Ford Fusion is a strikingly good looking car compared to others in the segment. The plug-in hybrid version is like a Fiskar for the common man. We are anxious to check out the Plug Ins when they hit the street. Only special Ford dealers are allowed to sell the Energi cars.
Green Car Journal today named the 2013 Ford Fusion Green Car of the Year at the Los Angeles Auto Show. With five powertrain choices including two EcoBoost® engines plus hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants, the all-new Fusion comes to market with a “game-on attitude,” says Ron Cogan, Green Car Journal publisher. David Mondragon, Ford general marketing manager, said Ford is “very honored” the 2013 Fusion has been recognized as Green Car of the Year. “From EcoBoost to hybrid and plug-in hybrid offerings, the new Fusion is delivering best-in-class fuel economy all wrapped in a dynamic package,” Mondragon said. Along with Fusion, other finalists for the award included Ford C-MAX, Toyota Prius C, Mazda CX-5 and Dodge Dart. More information about Fusion can be found here. Click here for more on the award.
