Ford Motor Company announced today that General Electric (GE) has placed the largest order for plug-in electrified vehicles. 2,000 C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrids will bolster GE’s already substantial alternative energy fleet of cars.
“Ford is launching six new electrified vehicles – a big bet that fuel prices will continue rising and lead to more demand for advanced fuel-efficient vehicles,” says Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “We are pleased to partner with GE, a company that is charting a similar course, to promote advanced technology and energy savings.”

“At GE, we are focused on providing our customers and our fleet with more economically and environmentally efficient vehicles. The Ford C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid is a great addition to our expanding fleet of alternative fuel vehicles,” said Mark Vachon, vice president of ecomagination at GE.

The Ford C-MAX Energi is one of the cleanest cars on the market right no. It’s been rated at 100 MPGe combined according to the EPA cycle, beating its rivals, the Toyota Prius Plug-In’s figure of 95 MPGe, as well as the 98 MPGe achieved by the Chevy Volt.
