According to an article by Reuters, some 2013 Ford C-Max vehicles contain seat backs that don’t comply with the National Highway Traffic Administration standards. The frames have sub-standard welds and the vehicles are being recalled. C-Max owners can check for the recall at the Ford Owner website.
This blog compares Ford C-Max sales with it’s closest competition, Toyota Prius V and Plug-in. Ford compares the C-Max Hybrid and Energi most often with the Toyota Prius V and Prius Plug-in Hybrid. The Prius is the most frequent trade-in for the C-Max. The Toyota vehicles are the most similar drivetrain, technology, and passenger/cargo-type vehicles available to compare with the C-Max Hybrid and Energi. The data was obtained from autobloggreen. The Ford C-Max Hybrid started shipping in late September and the C-Max Energi first shipped in late October 2012.
Ford Motor Company said today that 2,295 C-Max Hybrid and Energi vehicles were sold in March 2014, down 39% from March 2013. There was a month-over-month gain of 24% over the 1,853 sold in February. January 2014 was by far the lowest full-month for sales since the C-Max was introduced to the US market. Sales have increased substantially since January. Overall, Ford U.S. sales increased 3 percent from last year with Ford Fusion sales posting a record sales month of 32,963 cars, up 9 percent from last year’s record month.
