    100 MPGe Combined | All-New Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid

    • All-new Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid with advanced fourth-generation hybrid technology system has a class-leading EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 100 MPGe combined
    • Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid has an EPA-estimated all-electric range of 37 miles – 11 more miles than even Ford Fusion Energi, with more passenger space and up to four times the cargo volume behind its second-row seats
    • In addition to potential savings at the pump, purchasing an Escape Plug-In Hybrid may qualify a customer for state tax incentives or rebates; Escape Plug-In Hybrid starts under $35,000 MSRP
    DEARBORN, Mich., June 8, 2020 – The all-new Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid now has a best-in-class EPA-estimated economy rating of 100 MPGe combined and an EPA-estimated 37 miles of all-electric driving range.

    MPGe, or miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent, is an Environmental Protection Agency metric to compare the amount of energy consumed by alternative fuel vehicles – including those partially powered by electricity, like Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid – to what traditional gas-powered vehicles consume.

    “The original Ford Escape was the world’s first hybrid SUV and the all-new Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid represents how far we’ve come in technology and efficiency,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford chief product development and purchasing officer. “The all-new Escape plug-in has more power and more passenger space than the Fusion Energi plug-in, as well as up to four times the cargo volume behind its second-row seats.”

    Hybrids can serve as a hedge against rising gas prices. The Escape Plug-In Hybrid is available as gas prices are expected to rise, according to AAA, following the easing of stay-at-home mandates across the country. As consumers begin returning to work and taking weekend trips, demand for gasoline is expected to spike from the decades-low prices of the past two months.

    Whether gas is $1.87 a gallon like today or $2.87 a gallon like this time last year, Escape Plug-In Hybrid is suited for both, with an EPA-estimated all-electric range of 37 miles and an EPA-estimated rating of 41 miles per gallon combined when running strictly on gasoline.

    “The economic and environmental impacts of this virus have created a roller coaster for consumers looking to balance value, need and efficiency going forward,” Thai-Tang said. “Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid is that ideal balance our customers want.”

    • A state tax credit or rebate is a potential future tax savings. The amount of your tax savings will depend on your individual tax circumstances. Please consult with your own tax or legal professional to determine eligibility and the specific amount of your incentive or rebate available. Tax incentives and additional rebates are not within Ford's control. This information does not constitute tax or legal advice. ://afdc.energy.gov/laws
    • 2.5L Plug-in Hybrid. Actual mileage and range will vary. Range calculation based on 11.2 gallon tank.
    • Charge time based on manufacturer computer engineering simulations. The charging rate decreases as battery reaches full capacity. Your results may vary based on peak charging times and battery state of charge.

    This just drives me nuts about hybrids and electric vehicles and how the gov is setting regulations for vehicles when 62.7 percent of energy source in the states is from fossil fuels and going electric is going to put a higher demand on the electric grid which in turn creates more pollution then an internal combustion engine with emissions restrictions

    It also will cause an increase in consumer cost for that electric energy.

    Absolutely! The Gov is going to tax it more because of decrease in revenue from gasoline. Going electric is not the solution at all. Atleast not right now or the near future until the energy is 100 percent from a green source. Then again pissing in the wind makes perfect sense to the Gov
