    Fusion Energi $39,495 - C&D & others

    2013 Ford Fusion Energi (You Know, the Plug-In Hybrid) Priced at $39,495 - Car And Driver
    November 20, 2012

    Ford may be setting up the Fusion Energi, the plug-in-hybrid version of the Fusion, for bad “sticker shock” puns when it arrives at dealers in January. The less-expensive SE Luxury trim will be priced at $39,495, while a fully loaded Fusion Energi Titanium will cost $40,995. Both prices exclude a federal tax credit, which will probably be around $4000, and any applicable state tax credits.

    The Fusion Energi should offer a combined powertrain output similar to the Ford C-Max Energi, which offers 188 hp from its gasoline and electric motors. With the non-plug-in Fusion hybrid starting at $27,995 and running up to $32,995 for a Titanium model, the step into the Energi is steep. Even with an electric-only range of roughly 20 miles, most buyers won’t expect the Energi to pay for itself in fuel savings. Instead, they’ll buy it to avoid using gasoline specifically and for the cool factor.

    ...Still, Ford may have a hard time convincing buyers to spend their money on the Energi when the (albeit smaller) Chevrolet Volt lands at $39,145, plus destination, and offers 40 miles of all-electric range. Throw in the fact that the Fusion Hybrid comes in a full $11,500 cheaper than its plug-in sister, and the argument for the Fusion Energi becomes even thinner.

    The Fusion Energi gets a $4k credit.
    The CMax Energi gets $3,750

    ...The Chevy Volt starts at $39,145 but is eligible for the full $7,500 federal tax credit, bringing the effective price down to $31,645. The Prius Plug-in starts at $32,000, and is eligible for $2,500 in tax credits for a price of $29,500. While the Fusion offers more passenger room than the Volt, and more all-electric range than the Prius, those looking purely at the dollars and cents may be convinced to keep looking.

    Some of Ford’s own vehicles make a more compelling sales pitch than the Fusion Energi. The regular Ford Fusion Hybrid starts at $27,995 and offers 47 mpg across the board, and upgrading to the Titanium model costs just $32,995. Even the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, starting at $35,925, seems to be competing for the same buyers. Those who insist on plug-in capability can get the Ford C-Max Energi for as low as $29,995 after tax incentives, and it offers 21 miles of all-electric range…one more than the Fusion. Maybe that’s why GE is ordering 2,000 of them?...

    I don't think that's a bad price at all. It's worth it in the long run.

    Doesn't this sound like Ford is 'bracketing' the Volt? ...between this Fusion and the C-Max Energi's $30k?
    ie similar size for le$$, bigger size for the $ame $
    OR
    is it just that Ford's electrificated lineup is becoming so broad that the Volt is 'surrounded'?

    I don't know how well the math actually works here. Its a premium of about $10k over the hybrid fusion, its going to take a very, very, very long time to make up that difference in milage and with only a 20 mile electric only range it will be using more gas for the same trips then the hideous Volt. I think this is going to be similar to people who buy diesel trucks claiming they buy them to save on fuel expenses, yet when you consider the added maint costs along with the premium for diesel fuel they end up paying more. The people who are going to buy this either aren't doing the math, or they're likely the type that gives their tree a nice hug every day prior to leaving home! ;)
