Do you use Facebook? If you “Like” the C-MaxChat page in Facebook, you will get postings in your Facebook news feed for most of the blogs I post. This is an easy way to see what I’m posting each day, without the need to come back to the C-MaxChat blog. If you want to discontinue the postings to your Facebook news, just “unlike” the site.
Do you use Twitter? Just choose to follow me on Twitter. If you follow me, you will get Tweets with the latest blog articles as they become available, plus a few more tweets on other C-Max related tweets that you may find interesting. If you want to discontinue the tweets, just stop following me.
California and Maryland buyers between October 1, 2015 and October 1, 2016 of the Ford C-Max Energi will receive free access for three years to the SemaConnect and NRG EVgo charging networks. For information on enrolling, go to the EV 1-2-3 Charge website. In the area of Southern California I’m currently in (Irvine), there are very few chargers on these networks. For most customers, this is probably of minimal benefit. I suggest you check out the map for charger locations to see how beneficial it would be for you.
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 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 Autoblog. The Ford C-Max Hybrid started shipping in late September and the C-Max Energi first shipped in late October 2012.
Before 2015, the Ford C-MAX Energi was sold only in the U.S. and Canada. In February 2015, Ford starting selling the C-MAX Energi in the Netherlands. These are made in Michigan and slightly modified for the Dutch market. They are not produced with other European C-MAX vehicles in Germany. As far as I can tell, Ford doesn’t sell the C-MAX Energi in any other countries.
