The Ford C-Max Energi is manufactured in the U.S.A. (Michigan Assembly Plant) and sold in the U.S.A. and Canada. Ford announced that the C-Max Energi will be sold in Europe in 2014 but manufactured in Michigan rather than the plant in Spain where the European C-Max is made. Although C-Max Energi sales are restricted to the U.S.A. and Canada, it is interesting to note where it stands relative to worldwide sales of plug-in vehicles – hybrid (PHEV) and electric only (BEV). There were more than 200,000 plug-in vehicles sold worldwide in 2013. The C-Max Energi accounts for about 3% of worldwide sales and is the 8th most popular plug-in worldwide last year. The Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt, Prius Plug-in, Tesla Model S, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, Renault Zoe, and Volvo V60 Diesel Plug-in are all ahead of the C-Max Energi, in that order. The Leaf is by far the most popular plug-in, accounting for 23% of worldwide EV sales in 2013. The first four vehicles are available in the U.S. and Canada. The Outlander is expected to be sold in the U.S.A. in 2015. For more information, visit the ev-sales blog.
