In case you are not satisfied with the hybrids then a niche of the hybrid cars may serve all your needs and requirements. The 2015 Ford C-Max Energi is one such vehicle from that niche. It has the capability to travel for 20 miles on electricity without the need of gasoline. This car is known to be one of the best options for the people who travel within the city and can be recharged at home in an easy manner.
Most likely the standard C-Max Hybrid, the Energi has been equipped with a 2.0-liter gasoline engine along with an electric motor. At the same time, it is worth stating that the car has been adorned with a larger battery that can be recharged with an outside power source. This has contributed to estimated EPA rates of 88 MPGe and 38 miles per gallon in the absence of electricity option.

The vehicle is known to offer better drive feeling as compared to its rivals.
