2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid Review

#2
Looks pretty cold up there in .ca

One nice feature you won't find on a non-electric Fusion is super fast warmup of your car.

OLD DAYS (No hybrid)...
Remote start the car and wait 10 minutes for it to be warm enough to get into.

NEW DAYS (hybrid)...
The mighty hybrid battery sends mucho electric power to the cabin to heat things up in like 2-3 minutes.
For a cushy platinum trim the steering wheel, seat heaters and cabin air are all toasty warm and waiting for you by the time your Keurig has the coffee made - without internal combustion!

It only takes a couple of minutes Sure the ICE fires up, but only for about a minute. I rarely catch it running as I walk out into the garage in the morning. Even with the garage door closed, there is no need to worry about a few hundred liters of CO in the garage (compared to a few thousand if you let that big V6 run for 10 minutes).

Yep. I can testify to this. I've been riding in friend's electric cars and during the winter the heat comes on pretty instantly. The only drawback is that it kills the range quickly. So there's pro's and con's.
