Well, we think it’s safe to say that ecological awareness and the increasing concern for our global footprint isn’t going anywhere. And it shouldn’t; regardless of your opinion on global climate change, the fact is that gas prices are high and when given the opportunity to save (more than) a few bucks, you should take it.
At first, none of us were sure how people would react to the hybrid. Would it be a trend? Would only the hemp-wearing, green tea drinking, dreadlock wearing people of the world drive them, or would the average soccer mom now pack up the goldfish in a hybrid instead of a mini van.
Well, it seems to be the latter. As of August 2013, there have been a reported 6.8 million hybrid vehicles sold worldwide according to Wikipedia. Hybrid cars are here to stay, and the Ford Fusion combines the practicality of an electric car with the luxury that customers have come to know and love in Ford cars.
Consumers do not have to choose between social responsibility and a car they can be proud of. And unlike most of the early Hybrids, the price point of which was much too high for most consumers, the Ford Fusion is well within most consumers’ budgets. Plus, with Ford’s sleek and stylish design, your friends and family won’t even believe that it’s a hybrid.by
