2019 Fusion Energi

2019 Fusion Energi

The 2019 Fusion Energi is a handsome plug-in hybrid that provides the option to run it on gas or on its battery to maximize distance. Sophisticated as it is, this car screams economy – a big bonus for those looking to buy a 2019 Fusion Energi in Goldsboro. Ford has dropped the previous SE Luxury and Platinum trims. The battery is much bigger than in previous models, increasing the EV's range to 26 mpg.

Performance The 2019 Fusion Energi is powered by a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle engine while the electric drive is supplied by a recently-updated 9.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Illuminated sections show how much the battery has charged. Ford’s mobile app allows you to monitor and schedule charging. A station locator makes finding charging stations easy. The Energi boasts 103 mpg with a full battery working alongside the gas engine, and 43 mpg on gas alone while 26 mpg on all-electric driving. Whether it’s being run on gas or electricity alone or a combination of both, this sedan delivers a quick and smooth drive. One would expect the large battery to slow down the vehicle, but that is not the case.

Exteriors While the exteriors are not very different from previous Fusion models, what's really striking is the fact that the car has made several subtle changes without trying too hard to measure up to the more sophisticated sedans available in the market today. It does sport a new grille, LED headlamps, and taillights.

Interiors Unlike the subtle changes to the exterior, the interiors of the Energi stand out sharply. Although this is a mid-size sedan, it is very spacious, with sizeable in-cabin storage space; the cabin is surprisingly quiet too. Leather-trimmed interiors against a black shade definitely make this sedan stand out in a good way. Not only do the seats look good, but they are as comfortable as they can get. At the center of the dashboard is an impressive 8-inch touchscreen running SYNC 3, which includes Alexa and Waze integration, voice-activated navigation, and SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link.

Safety features The 2019 Fusion Energi comes packed with the latest Ford Co-Pilot 360 suite of technologies. Some of the standard features included in this suite are blind-spot monitoring, automated emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlamps, and lane-keeping assistance.
