2016 Ford C-Max Hybrid horsepower and fuel economy
So, what is something that might turn potential hybrid drivers away from such a car? Horsepower, or lack thereof, might be a turnoff for some drivers, but the C-Max has that covered. The 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle inline-4 gas engine and dynamic electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery produces 188 horsepower. That’s even more power under the hood than plenty of non-hybrid models! With that kind of power, you will still be getting an estimated 42 city and 37 highway miles per gallon.
Such great power and fuel economy is helped by the Regenerative Braking and Brake Coach features. In a conventional vehicle, applying the brakes can cause a loss of kinetic energy due to friction. What the C-Max Hybrid does, however, is use regenerative braking to recover over 90 percent of that lost energy and sends it to the battery pack to be used. The Brake Coach will then show you the percentage of energy you have recovered, so you are always in the know.
