CMAX Energi Road Test gets over 115 MPG
The 2015 C-MAX Energi is one car I personally do like. I even recommended it to a friend at green4u.com and like how it’s an accessible car for mid-priced plugin hybrids.
The interior is all leatheresque from recycled plastic bottle fibers across the board. From seats to dash. It is a great looking interior. More importantly, the seats are up high to feel like a large SUV.
THEN with an extra large panoramic roof, it felt like being in a Ford Explorer or Escape but not.
Best part was the MPG didn’t disappoint. The 119.6 was a great mpg. Driving the 24 miles was more like 30 to 35 when you include the regenerative braking. This is pure battery and after then is hybrid mode. The car totally wanted to be 999 MPG at all times.
However outside of the pure EV range makes it drop.
Maybe it’s time for car companies to make plugin hybrid electrics that have a 60 mile range?!
