Ask Ford

Why are you only selling the Hybrid and plug in Hybrid C-Max here Canada? Why no straight gasoline engine?


With the C-MAX launch, we are prioritizing fuel economy above all, as we believe this is a priority for consumers. Launching C-MAX as a hybrid-only line provides a better opportunity for us to establish this new nameplate in North America as an electrified-only model. Until now, Ford has not offered a hybrid-only product. C-MAX will be that vehicle for Ford, and we think that will help draw interest and attention—the fuel economy performance should draw interest as well! If you are interested in a five-door hatchback with more cargo space than a Focus, though, check out the new Escape that launches later this year. It is has a similar footprint to the C-MAX, but will be offered with a number of traditional engine choices.

Brad B I agree, when you say the name C-Max is will automatically trigger the Hybrid train of thought. I just wish they'ed do a Spring instead of Fall debut for the C-Max. Couple of wish list items, light duty trailer hitch, and a roof rack like the Escape. Why? For beginners a small 4ft x 8ft trailer like mine, or wheel chair / ev chair users. and the rood rack for the roof top storage carriers and sports users like a canoe among other uses.
