If you are shopping for an eco-friendly vehicle that takes advantage of gas-efficient hybrid technology without having to plug in and recharge, you’re in luck. Rusty Eck Ford in Wichita has exactly what you are looking for in the form of the all-new 2016 Ford Fusion.

So what makes this cool compact car the perfect compromise for you and the environment? Well, a 2016 Ford Fusion features a hybrid trim that is stylish, fuel efficient and comfort-rich. The car operates so powerful and capable, it’s likely you will forget its eco-friendly nature until you realize you haven’t stopped at the gas station in a long while or when you notice the extra money in your finances from fewer trips to the fuel pumps. Simply stated, the hybrid Fusion from car dealerships in Wichita, KS, is the best of both worlds.

Besides saving money on gas, a 2016 Fusion Hybrid from your local Ford in Wichita dealer allows you to do something good for the environment without having to sacrifice power. The hybrid trim of the 2016 Ford Fusion has a 2.0-liter engine with an electronically controlled transmission and a battery-powered electric motor. This combination will deliver a combined effort of 188 horsepower and fuel efficiency of 40 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.

Ah, but don’t worry. Just because there is a battery providing partial power for the motor doesn’t mean it sacrifices any power. In fact, the Fusion hybrid can travel in electric mode at speeds up to 85 mph, so it can handle itself just fine. So how does this hybrid work without plugging into a wall outlet or recharging station? A 2016 Ford Fusion from your Wichita Ford dealer uses Regenerative Braking as its power source. The way that works is the motor is connected to the brakes, and captures energy from the heat of your brakes and converts it into energy for battery power.

So what are you waiting for? Do something good for the planet and for your wallet, and visit Rusty Eck Ford in Kansas today and test drive the all-new Ford Fusion.
