While Democrats and Republicans don’t agree on much, President Barack Obama and Arizona Republican U.S. Sen. John McCain have both acknowledged Ford hybrid technology in recent weeks.
According to USA Today, Sen. McCain took delivery of a 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid on June 16. The silver sedan replaces McCain’s 2004 Cadillac CTS. Just a few days before McCain purchased the car through Ourisman Ford Lincoln Mercury in Alexandria, Va., he tweeted, “Time to get a new car – decided on the Ford Fusion Hybrid.” You can read the full article in USA Today by clicking here.

Fuel economy of the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid is an EPA-estimated 41 city/36 hwy mpg. Actual mileage will vary.
Last month, the political nod to Ford came from President Obama. At the end of a speech announcing the signing of a bill that effectively raises the gas-mileage standard, President Obama came back to the microphone to tell the crowd that he has a Ford Hybrid Escape back in Chicago, and it runs great.
The 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid achieves an EPA-estimated 34 city/31 hwy mpg. Actual mileage will vary.
