Default 41 MPG city Fusion Hybrid more efficient than Camry Hybrid's 33 MPG

So who still wants a Prius?

"The hybrid system for the Fusion and Milan hybrids supports operation
in all-electric mode at speeds of up to 47 mph; a smaller, lighter
NiMH high-volt battery has greater charge capacity and range than the
previous generation battery. The hybrids have a range of more than 700
miles of city driving on a single tank of gas."

http://www.greencarcongress.com/2008...ord-fusio.html


"With those numbers, the Fusion Hybrid will be America's most fuel
efficient mid-size car, topping its chief competitor -- the Toyota
Camry Hybrid -- by 8 mpg in the city and 2 mpg on the highway."

You get comfort? A car that works well for a long time (as in 10-20
years)? Backed by a company that doesn't tell you to **** off when your
transmission falls out at 37K miles?

No, you don't get any of that from Ford.

Glad to see Ford is working on this. I wouldn't want
a Prius if you gave it to me.

Me. It's a proven winner; until other vehicles hit its level of high marks
from owners, I want a Prius.

The Fusion is based on a Mazda and Volvo platform. Wonder what happens when
Ford sells those brands. Otherwise it seems like quite a nice car and the
hybrid an excellent value.

If someone gave me one of those pregnant roller skates I'd give it back.

It was a false rumour that Priuses have a built in vibrator.
