One of the great debates is the world car of the alternative fuel strategies will be enough to emerge as the main subject to acceptance by the magic of the big sales to consumers and automakers.
Is there a parallel to serial hybrids like the ones already on sale for the last ten years? It will focus on battery electric vehicles (BEVs) as the new Nissan Leaf? Or will it be plug-in hybrid Volt power plants like the new Chevy? No one really knows, because it is clear that the Ford Motor Company to secure and to provide plans for vehicles with a variety of other-fired power plants.
Witness of the line C-Max, both a parallel hybrid powertrain offers well-known series such as the current in the Ford Fusion hybrid sedan and a plug-in hybrid powertrain Energi C-Max. Ford will also be available to new priorities, not only with conventional power plants but also as an electric version from late 2011.
The hybrid C-Max, and energy, his will, on sale sometime in calendar year 2012. All C-Max models to a new U.S. market converted Ford Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan, set up in part by solar energy powered generator system.

Here are some other very interesting news about the C Max: Max TC you could have heard, for the seven-passenger long-wheelbase C-Max, the so-called C-Max Grand in Europe. It is only with conventional power plants, and has been to before powertrain option C-Max models on sale in the United States. But now, like the C-Max hybrid models and looks Energi is only available in the short wheelbase, five-person body style, this will go on sale before the seven-passenger C-Max, Ford sought because moving to a long wheelbase C-Max production to North America and delay the process. Confused? So are we. But you know, sometime in 2012, you become a hybrid-drive C-Max or C-Max Plug-in hybrid energy and you will be able to for four passengers on the trip.
