Re: Ford Announces 2013 Fusion with Hybrid and PHEV options!
Energi will have 20 (as they were talking about earlier) or 21 (as they are saying now) miles of blended EV range. This corresponds to 11 miles that Prius Plug-In has been rated at.
I think Energi will have a 8 or 9 kWh battery with 6 kWh being usable. This will allow them to have a smaller DOD and thus they can offer a long warranty as needed for CA ATPZEV certification.
This gives a tax credit between $4k and $4.5k. So, if they price Energi (C-max) around $35k, post tax credit it will be about $30k i.e. about the same as Prius Plug-In and a little cheaper than the Volt.
For Fusion Energi, they will first price the hybrid at the same level as Camry Hybrid (26k). The plugin will be about $10K more before tax credits and thus about $32k after tax credit.
All this assuming, Ford won't pull another FFE but will price them competitively.
