The C-Max Hybrid was new for the 2012 model year. It comes with a two-liter electric hybrid engine, which Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) claims gets 47 mpg in both city and highway driving. The C-Max is the first plug-in hybrid from Ford in the United States, which puts it into competition with other large international car companies that have released electric cars in the past two or three years. The Chevy Volt probably has gotten the most press of these cars, largely because of flaws with its batteries. As the sales figures for the C-Max, Volt and Nissan Leaf show, it has remained difficult to gain a mainstream consumer base for electric cars.
