Ford C-Max Energi owners may not be aware that September 28 and 29, 2013 (Saturday and Sunday) is “National Plug In Day.” There are local events scheduled throughout the world. There’s more information available and a page to find local events near you at the National Plug In Day website.
Ford continues to collect information on EV use using the MyFord Mobile application and website for the Ford Focus Electric, C-Max Energi and Fusion Energi. Ford said 203,000 electric miles are driven every day by Energi (Plug-in Hybrid C-Max and Fusion) owners. After six months, nearly 30 percent of all trips are gas-free compared with about 20 percent at the beginning of Energi ownership. Ford doesn’t collect information on individual drivers according to the press release, but aggregates group data so that it can continue to deliver the best possible ownership experience. Ford also announced the “PowerUp Tour” to inform consumers about the Energi. The PowerUp website has a form to enter a sweepstakes to win a Ford C-Max Energi.
