The Ford Fusion Hybrid - Cutting Edge Technology

The 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and electric motor combined delivers 188 horsepower with speeds over 80 miles-per-hour. In electric mode, the Fusion offers a built-in heuristic tutorial providing instantaneous response and instruction. The electronic tutor is called SmartGauge with EcoGuide and tracks both your driving habits and the vehicle operations, including fuel economy.

SmartGuide allows you to customize views to suit your personal learning style. Screen choices include Empower and Engage. Engage shows readouts for engine power and battery power. Empower offers the same information, but includes how close you are coming to needing gasoline power and how much energy is needed for acceleration.

The Fusion Hybrid is designed to route as much energy as possible back to the battery. When applying the brakes, more than 90 percent of the recovered energy is captured and returned to the battery. EcoSelect mode automatic approach to energy conservation. If EcoSelect is mode is activated, acceleration is softer is the heating/air-conditioning is slower to respond.
