24/7 Wall St.: Cars So Hot They Are Out of Stock

1. Ford Fusion Hybrid

Days to turn: 11 (tied for the fewest)
2012 sales: 10,856
Price: $27,200
Configuration1: four-door sedan

The Fusion Hybrid has not gained much traction for Ford. Sales reached 20,816 in 2010, but will be about flat from last year at around 12,000. The Fusion is the least-expensive hybrid sold by America’s second-largest car company. Ford claims the car gets 47 mpg for both city and highway driving. The fuel plant used in the Fusion Hybrid is a 2.0L Atkinson-Cycle I-4 Engine, which Ford says can go “from a complete stop and can travel under light to normal acceleration up to 62 miles per hour on electric power alone … with no fuel used.” With a full set of options, the Fusion Hybrid costs as much as $36,000, which seems a small price to pay for a car that saves all that gas.
