The Plug-In Hybrid: An EV That Doesn't Need a Charging Station

In the Phoenixville area, electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are few and far between. This can make the idea of owning an EV intimidating and impractical, even for the most dedicated environmentalist. Ford has a better way.

The Ford C-Max Energi and Fusion Energi are plug-in hybrids. They plug in and charge up, just like an EV, and can drive on electricity alone. However, these vehicles do not require a specialized station (although you can purchase a 240-volt home charging station). The C-Max Energi and Fusion Energi can be charged using a standard 120-volt wall outlet.

Just like charging a laptop.

What happens if you need to make a longer trip, say, out of state? Never fear. While Ford's plug-in hybrid models can run on electricity alone, eliminating the need for gasoline, they also contain an internal combustion engine and can be fueled up at any gas station for extended-range trips.
