TEVAdrive discuss the differences between the latest model year of Ford and its previous 2016 version, as well as its impressions of the new set up – which is always useful to know prior to a new purchase.

Our monthly plug-in sales stats shows that the new 2017 Ford Fusion Energi has never sold better, especially in comparison to other petrol Fusion powertrains.

In August, September and October the Energi grabbed Fusion market share of 7.5%, 8.0% and 7.3% respectively.

Total U.S. sales of the plug-in Ford have already exceeded 40,000, while in 2016, the Fusion Energi has passed the Nissan LEAF as the 4th best selling plug-in.

The 2017 model year pricing starts at $27,988 after $4,007 tax credit, while the 7.6 kWh battery is now rated for up to 21 miles (EPA).

All this review did was reinforce my view of Fusion Energi drivers which is based solely on the guys at my work that have one. None of them can apparently follow EV etiquette and move their cars when they are done charging, only park in a charging spot if they are going to plug in and just like the driver in this review park within their own parking spaces!!!!

Meanwhile the Volts, Sparks, Leafs, and Fiats all some how get it.

Truly surprised you found reinforcement of your views. My view is, that never happens.

I see that crap all the time.
No charge parking etiquette at all.

I see PiP’s, energi’s and volts in spots for hours, over 4-6 hours and you know those batteries don’t take long to charge full on a 6.6KW charger.
Some are parked and not even plugged in……WTF?!?!?!?

PiP’s, Energi’s and Volt’s have only 3.3 to 3.6 kW chargers. So they can take 2-4 to fully charge.

“Hard drive based” – I seriously doubt it.

“simulate gear changes” – so instead of running the engine at the most efficient speed it panders to the easily confused?

Lincoln version is prettier.

We should see a plug-in version of the Next Gen MKZ in MY2019, as it gets the all new modular platform with better battery storage as well.

– They had a 2014 model, not a 2016 model before.

– Fill ups every 4 months when charging daily.

But I wished they guy would just ask the Ford guy the questions and let him talk, instead of trying to already know everything.
