Ford C-Max Hybrid Is Hard to Find; C-Max Energi Impossible?

2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid

There is plenty of inventory for the 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid on Christmas Eve.

According to Forbes, most cars stay in dealer inventory for two months.  The Ford C-Max has a dealer inventory time of 17 days.  That short time places the C-Max in the list of the top ten hardest cars to find according to Forbes.  Of the ten, only the Kia Soul sold more than the C-Max in November 2012.  Half of the vehicles on the list have very limited production.  Forbes combined the C-Max Hybrid and C-Max Energi for their article.  The C-Max Energi is far more difficult to find.

I did a little research with the Edmunds.com site to determine how difficult the C-Max Energi is to find.  There were nineteen markets that were the first to receive plug-in electric cars from Ford, including the plug-in version of the C-Max, the C-Max Energi.  A search within 500 miles of each of those nineteen markets with the Edmunds.com inventory search shows that the C-Max Energi is very hard to find.  I couldn’t find one.  A less exhaust search weeks ago did find very limited inventory.  It appears as though thousands of C-Max Hybrids are available at dealers using the same Edmunds.com search.  It’s possible that Ford is filling C-Max Energi orders for GE rather than providing inventory to dealers.  Asking Santa to bring you a C-Max Energi is probably more successful than going to your local Ford dealer.
