Ford C-Max Hybrid first drive

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...el_first_test/

Does the C-Max Hybrid give the Prius V a run for its fuel-efficient money? If you're a car nut who enjoys stylish five-passenger road machines as much as my uncle, you already know the answer. And you'll be insisting on a ride very soon.

Great vehicle, this one could be a real hit among the Hybrid crowd. Just hope Ford does a good job selling it.

agreed. it looks to be a better car than the prius equivalent, but its just a matter of if Ford can get people to know about it.

Ford C-Max Hybrid is Blue Oval's best-selling hybrid in first month of sales



Ford moved 969 C-Max Hybrids in September, edging out the Fusion Hybrid, with 898 sold, and the Lincoln MKZ, with 781. Granted, the C-Max fell well short of the Prius V's September sales of 1,652 vehicles. Still, the C-Max eclipsed the Ford Fusion Hybrid's debut-month sales of 402 units in March 2009 (the Fusion moved 1,073 units the following month). And in its debut month of September 2010, the Lincoln MKZ hybrid moved just ten units, followed by sales of 366 units in October 2010.

Well one is an electric and one is a hybrid, not to mention the size difference (albeit not a vast difference.) I am sure there are production and CAFE issues as well.

this car is a styling fail. In my the Prius looks MUCH better... the current ford styling looks worst on this shape of vehicle. It needs to look more "spaceship" and less minivan. the interior looks great, but the outside looks dated.
