In an acknowledgement of changing driver tastes and new technology, the Ford Motor Company has announced it will stop producing and selling its small car lineup in North America. It will focus instead on producing SUVs, trucks, commercial vehicles, and expanded lines of e-mobility vehicles. This means the Ford Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid is an endangered species. Before it takes a final bow and leaves for good, Ford is trying to sell as many as possible.

To do that, Ford has given its 2019 Energi a mild facelift and increased its battery capacity from 7.6kWh to 9.0kWh. The more energy-dense battery chemistry increases its electric range from 21 to 26 miles, moving it up in the competition to compete with the best-selling PHEV on the market, the Prius Prime. Automotive reviewers driving the car say they haven’t quite been able to reach the magic 26 number, though the U.S. Department of Energy (www.fueleconomy.gov) has provided the 26 mile all-electric rating. They’ve also rated Energi’s Fuel Economy at 43/41mpg city/highway, and 42mpg combined. And they’ve rated Energi’s Total Range at 610 miles – an astronomical number that crushes the competition.

Which is one of the reasons Ford has found this car to be so popular.

The modest 2019 redesign has updated the front and rear of the exterior. More importantly, the automaker has added Ford’s Co-Pilot360 – a suite of driver-assistance tech which includes blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, automatic high-beams, and a reversing camera.

For 2019, the Fusion Energi is available in a single trim level: Titanium ($36,595 MSRP). Adding a moonroof ($1,095) and the destination/delivery charge brings the total price to $38,585.

Interior features include a 10-way Heated and Cooled power driver's seat with 2 memory settings and 10-way Heated and Cooled power passenger seat with (fore/aft, up/down, tilt, recline, 2-way power lumbar) with 1 memory setting for passengers.

Standard Comfort and Convenience features include: a Rotary gear shift dial, Power door locks, Intermittent/speed sensitive wipers, Rain-sensing wipers, BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, a Lane-Keeping System, Active Noise Control, Hill Start Assist, a Remote deck lid release, Dual illuminated visor mirrors, Two 12-Volt Power points, a Message center with trip computer, a leather-wrapped, tilt and telescoping Steering wheel with cruise and redundant audio controls, an Auto-dimming rear view mirror, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, an Intelligent Access with Remote Start System, Remote Start System, Push Button Start, SmartGauge  with EcoGuide, MyKey, MyFord Mobile, and an EV mode button.

Safety Features include: a Rear View Camera, Dual stage front driver and passenger airbags, Front-seat side airbags, 1st- and 2nd-row side curtain airbags, Driver and front passenger knee airbags, Seat belt pretensioners, an Individual Tire Pressure Monitoring System, AdvanceTrac with electronic stability control (ESC), LATCH (lower anchor and tethers anchors for children) system, Child safety locks-rear doors, SOS Post-Crash Alert, Inflatable rear safety belts, Personal Safety System, Perimeter alarm, Keyless entry key fob, SecuriCode  keyless entry keypad, SecuriLock Passive Anti-Theft System, and an Electric-assist parking brake.

The plug-in 2019 Fusion qualifies for a $4,609 Federal Income Tax credit for buyers (www.fueleconomy.gov). If you lease the car, Ford will subtract a large chunk of this amount from the MSRP. A Current EV representative can explain the details of this significant cost reduction.
