Will You Be One of the First to Order a 2013 Ford C-MAX Hybrid?
MAY
22

You know how the cool kid in school always had the newest gadgets first? This is your chance to leap to the top of the cool chart, as Ford dealers are starting to place orders for America’s most affordable and fuel-efficient hybrid utility vehicle – the 2013 Ford C-MAX Hybrid!

The C-MAX is the first Ford dedicated line of hybrids. The 2013 C-MAX Hybrid will be available in the fall of 2012 with a base price of $25,995 – approximately $500 lower than the Toyota Prius v base price.

The C-MAX Hybrid blends fuel economy with performance, with projected best-in-class horsepower and torque along with the Ford third-generation powersplit technology that allows for higher speed while in electric mode than Toyota Prius v.

C-MAX Hybrid benefits from 20 years of research and innovation behind the software and hardware technology driving it, with many of the almost 500 Ford hybrid vehicle-related patents contained within.

That means that along with SYNC® with MyFord Touch®, drivers can get class-exclusive available features like hands-free liftgate (offering hands-free cargo access with a simple kicking motion), SmartGauge® with EcoGuide, regenerative braking and an advanced lithium-ion (li-ion) battery pack that is being used for the first time in a Ford hybrid.

The C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid will follow later this year with better electric-mode fuel economy and overall driving range than the Prius plug-in hybrid.

Christian Nous allons recevoir la livraison de la première C-Max Energi du concessionnaire sur la rive-sud cette semaine. Beaucoup d'engouement depuis mes première recherche il y a 2 ans déjà et c'est un départ pour notre jeune famille de roulez électrique le plus possible en rechargant par nous même. This week, we will be the first to receive the C-Max Energi after almost 2 years. The dealer will come back on it but they believe it's the first in the province of Quebec if not in the country. Our young family will now enjoy has much as possible driving electric here in Montreal, Canada

Tom R Not until they smarten up and also offer the Grand C-Max so I have some extra storage room and a place for my kids friends when I make a run to the fields. Worst move ever not including the grand C-max or the diesels for that matter.

Jeff We are going on 3 weeks with our c-max. Everything in Dan's post is identical to our experience including the dubbing the car. Except we are calling it the anti-climax. Don't get me wrong we love the car but really Ford 47 mpg. Maybe if it was being towed. Highway mileage is around 38, have managed a best of 52.2 (est) on a 10 mile trip in San Diego traffic. Mostly though I'd say 38 is an average all around for the car 9 miles less than the made up numbers. Roof racks are available. They are made by Thule. As this is a euro model imported to the states you would think they would have learned more. The sliding door would have been nice see c-max grand or grand c-max. The stereo leaves much to be desired and should be offered as an entertainment upgrade without the leather package. Please note that our prior vehicles came equipped with a chevy installed Bose (500) watt stereo, and our Ford escape was a LA sound and security show piece for Boston acoustics. Needless to say when it comes to mobile sounds we are kind of spoiled. Car drives great, was comfortable on a 1000 mile trip, and is everything we could ask for in a good run around town vehicle. Well Done Ford.

Robert T The Grand Cmax get 56 MPG cost cheaper($3000) and has 3rd row seating . So every one that loves there C max W/ the battery getting 42 MPG. Well ford is just ripping you off in my opinion.

Carol P Just bought my C-Max two weeks ago and LOVE it!! Has all the features my Edge had(Limited)but much better mileage.Thank you Ford!

Dan Just got my C-Max and love it with a few minor exceptions: 1: I am not getting anywhere near the 47, I drive 65mph on the highway and I tend to get about 40-42. In the city I am getting closer to 38. Still not bad, but I don't know how they were driving to get 47. I'd say that I drive conservatively 2: Ford totally missed the boat on not putting roof rails or even the slots for a roof rack on this car. Interior space isn't bad, but I can see hauling bikes is going to be kind of tough. 3. My car has been deemed the Ford Climax and joked about countless times so far. Can we come up with something other than C-max?

Robert T I just don't get it. All i want is a Grand Cmax Van not a stupid EV. BTW they stop making Ford Transite connect EV, the Ford Focus EV is not selling, and these EV cmax's wont sell as well. DOSE any body know that these batteries do more damage to the environment then gas. Most people wanted the Grand cmax anyway

Tim I was hoping to see Ford offer the 1.6 TDCI with the C-Max Hybrid boy that would rock! everyone knows diesels put out alot less pollution than gas and twice the fuel economy but I quess we're not worthy imagine a C-Max with a diesel electric drive that would be totally awsome in bumper to bummer traffic.......less chance of running out of fuel. I'll just hold on to my old Focus until the diesel electrics show up!

Ronald W I am waiting on the C-MAX ENERGI or the 2013 FUSION ENERGI, but FORD really needs to do something about its EXTERIOR COLOR SELECTIONS!! THE CHEVY VOLT has much better ECS than the C-MAX line.
2 year(s) ago via
James C I will!!! I have already gone to the dealer to get the option package information. Just waiting for the chance. I aready have a F-150, which I am keeping. I have had 2 Mustangs, and 2 Escorts in the past, but now is the time to get something that will really save gas.
2 year(s) ago via
John I'm hoping for a class 2 hitch so I can attach a rack to hold the family's four bikes. A roof rack for a thule box is also a must. Hopefully this will be available on the Energi model and I hope that will be available in Toronto soon.

Sandra R sounds nice to me. I drive a 2009 Kia Rondo and I love it very much so it's not going anywhere without me. But if I hadn't bought this a year ago, I definately would look into thi Ford C-Max Hybrid.

Robert T curb weight Grand C-max 3150 lbs. C-MAX Hybrid 3,682 lbs. C-MAX Energi 3,986 lbs. how is it better to carry all that extra battery I rather keep the 3rd row diesel at 49mpg .Also a Grand Cmax would start 2 or 3 thousand Cheaper.E-cars are stupid

Brad B Hey Ford & Mark Evans ! It's not too small, saw it in January at the Detroit Auto Show and rented one not to long ago in France. The C-Max is the right vehicle for the time. At the price point shown in the story (around 25K) you can get a mid-sized that happens to be a hybrid for a bit more than a standard vehicle. I can forsee quite a few acessories coming across the Atlantic (see Ford UK site) that will translate well to our needs. I want a SEL, Sterling Grey with a few options. Be proud Bill Ford, your C-Max Team is great, and done a great job. As a earlier comment from me, a 1 1/4" hitch for a wheel chair carrier, and a roof rack like the Escape ..... We plan to travel some and wave the Ford Flag this Fall on our C-Max Hybrid.
2 year(s) ago via
Brad B Hey Ford ! How about a few more options: 1- Luggage Rack like the Escape. 2- 1 1/4" trailerhitch for a wheel chair carrier. 3- Moonroof for us older people (54). 4- 6 CD changer. 5- Daytime running lights. Not real big ones, but what we look for.
2 year(s) ago via
Christy D No. I had hoped to get a C-Max, but need room for 4 kids at least some of the time. If I have to drive twice as much because I don't have room to carpool, that wipes out all the energy savings from getting the hybrid. Maybe in a few years when we replace the commuter car, but this year a new family vehicle needs to take priority.

Robert T To the people who live in the real world Hybrids are stupid they cost to much Vs just buying gas. and most of use wanted the 7 Passenger Cmax with a diesel like the rest of the world has. ford seems determine to shove these E-cars down are throat.

Seth A Interesting about all the negative comments- just because this is a hybrid. These are nothing new. Hybrids have been around for almost 2 decades now. They're a common sight in major cities. Many are just as roomy inside as any full size family car. So basically the term "Hybrid" is generic at this point might as well be the same as using a general term- like " Electronic fuel injection", or "Diesel engine". Its just a car that happens to use a different drivetrain. If this car is everything its being claimed Ford will sell them and sell a LOT of them. In my opinion its good to have more direct competition with the prius. We own one ourselves and its now getting on towards being 11 years old. I can see a car like the C-Max being a real contender for our next possible purchase and I am assuming that will be the case for many others like us.

Michael A Brad is right on. A tow hitch should be available. Another miss is the lack of roof rails. Prius V missed the market here as well. This isn’t a sedan it’s a SUV. That means Sports Utility Vehicle. Ford should consider the lifestyle of those who would buy the car and what they would like to do with it. People who choose to go Green generally have an active lifestyle. We are the hikers, kayakers, skiers, cyclists and the disabled. These racks generally use 2” receivers. Put the appropriate warning label: Not to be used as… and you will have communicated its intended use. This is a significant market that Ford could own.
