2013 Ford C-Max

Maximize Your Lifestyle

The 2013 C-MAX is the first-ever hybrid-only vehicle line from Ford in North America.

Both the all-new C-MAX Hybrid and the all-new C-MAX Energi Plug-in Hybrid offer the sporty style and performance of a Ford vehicle with the added benefit of leaving a smaller carbon footprint. The vehicles run on a combination of gas and electric.

The key difference between the C-MAX Hybrid and the C-MAX Energi is that the C-MAX Energi is the first plug-in production vehicle for Ford. That means that the C-MAX Energi is like a “hybrid plus,” which operates just like a traditional hybrid, plus features a charge port and larger lithium-ion battery. This allows you to plug in for electric-only range, which enhances efficiency.

Whichever model suits your lifestyle, both feature the SmartGauge® with EcoGuide, a 2.0L Atkinson-cycle I-4 gas engine teamed with an advanced high-voltage lithium-ion battery, and innovative technology like the available SYNC® with MyFord Touch®. The C-MAX Energi also seamlessly integrates with the smartphone app and website, MyFord® Mobile.*

2.0L I-4 Hybrid Electric Powertrain

For more than a decade, Ford has engineered alternative-energy vehicles. These include the world's first hybrid SUV - powered by a gas engine/electric motor and designed to be efficient and reduce impact on the environment while still offering impressive performance.

The C-MAX Hybrid and C-MAX Energi both offer an engine that was designed for hybrid efficiency

C-MAX Energi Technology

Think of the all-new C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid as a "hybrid plus". It was designed to deliver maximum efficiency by combining an advanced state-of-the- art battery and electric motor with a gasoline engine.

The gasoline engine does not run all the time, so you may go farther between refueling stops

Plug-in capability lets you charge the battery using either a standard 120-volt or a 240-volt outlet upgraded with available electric vehicle supply equipment

Available SYNC® with MyFord Touch®

EV Mode button allows the driver to easily switch between all-electric and gas power

*The vehicle must be equipped with a navigation system to get EcoRoute.

Illuminated Charge Port

You’ll always know at a glance when your car is charged and ready to go.

When the connector cord is plugged into the C-MAX Energi charge port, located between the driver’s door and front wheel well, the port will illuminate into quadrants to indicate its current level of charge

When all four quadrants are illuminated, the vehicle has fully charged

Available 240V charging cord shown.
