Test Driving Ford CMAX Energi Packs a Green Punch


| 4/7/2014 8:25:00 AM


So, I have been driving the C-MAX Energi from Ford Motor Company, I am getting a 23-27 mile state of charge. However, these miles do not degrade as quickly as when I got the car. I think the dealership did not refresh the batteries or it is a car right out of Detroit to Manhattan to my house.

However, the hubbub is I got 42 miles for a charge once for the C-MAX Energi. It’s staying now at the 20’s but they are more reliable 20’s. I think there might be some glitches with the controller and batteries. Also, people need to refresh these batteries. Refreshing batteries means to drain the electric vehicle and even hybrid electric battery packs get drained all the way down. It keeps the integrity of the batteries in check and assures a real range that’s equal to your driving style.

After speaking in 2013 with the head of the Eco gauges from Ford the C-MAX Energi, he explained that the smart gauge gave me a range related to my driving patterns. 

In the right cluster, redesigned imagery of green leaves shows overall driving efficiency. The left cluster shows Brake Coach, a feature that helps drivers optimize their use of the regenerative braking system so that driving range can be enhanced through proper braking techniques.
