The 2017 Ford Fusion Energi boasts a fully electric driving mode where the vehicle can be propelled using only an electric motor for about 19 miles. However, when that battery becomes depleted the 2017 Ford Fusion Energi functions as a traditional gas-electric hybrid vehicle. It takes advantage of technology such as regenerative braking to capture otherwise lost energy and improve overall efficiency.
One of the most popular features offered on the new 2017 Ford Fusion Energi is a simple to use in-car connectivity system called Ford SYNC. This system enables drivers to connect their smartphones or compatible MP3 player up to the car using bluetooth connectivity. SYNC technology allows drivers to make hands-free phone calls and browse music libraries with simple voice commands. SYNC helps to keep you safe behind the wheel by helping you keep your hands on the wheel, and your eyes on the road.
One of the most frustrating aspects of driving is parking. Whether you are parallel parking or just simplifying trying to pull into a tight space, it can be challenging. However, Ford has solved this issue with a feature in the 2017 Ford Fusion Energi called Active Park Assist. When this feature is turned on it is able to search for an available parking spot and actually park the vehicle for you.
