Eco-conscious consumers find Ford Hybrid models at Rod Baker Ford

August 27, 2014

Hybrid technology continues to capture the attention of fuel-economy-focused drivers

PLAINFIELD, Ill., Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — The rising cost of gas in recent years has made lengthy daily commutes more of a financial burden on many drivers. Since the price of gas isn’t likely to return to the rates of 10 or even five years ago, vehicles must adapt to better meet the needs of the modern driver. Ford has been at the forefront of the shift from gas-powered vehicles to hybrid models with a number of new vehicles as well as hybrid versions of already popular Ford vehicles.

Rod Baker Ford, a Plainfield Ill. Ford dealership, caters to the needs of those drivers looking for better fuel efficiency and less harmful emissions from their vehicles. Among those vehicles is the Ford C-Max Hybrid, which is currently on the Rod Baker Ford lot.

The 2014 Ford C-Max hybrid gets its power from 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine, like a traditional vehicle would. But the engine is coupled to an electric motor that gets its power from a lithium-ion battery pack that combine to generate 188 horsepower. Rather than relying solely on the gas engine, the vehicle will generate electric power and utilize it at the most opportune times to maximize fuel-economy. During short commutes, the lithium ion battery provides enough power to the electric motor to allow drivers to reach their destination solely on electric power.

While the C-Max Hybrid is among the most popular hybrid models available, the Ford lineup also includes hybrid versions of the Ford Fusion and Ford Escape for drivers looking for a familiar nameplate with hybrid technology.
