Price Estimates previous to Ford releasing the C-max Energi pricing
In June 2011, Ford’s Farley hinted that the Ford C-max would cost less than the Volt. Farley said Ford can bring down the cost considerably because the hybrid and plug-in hybrid C-max will share many parts. The Volt starts at $40,280 doesn’t share the hybrid system with any other General Motors vehicle. The Ford C-max is built on the global-c platform.
Aaron Bragman with IHS Automotive thinks Ford could sell the C-max hybrid for as low as $25,000 and the plug-in hybrid will cost a few thousand more.
Since the Ford Focus Electric is priced higher than what anyone first suspected, we suspect the Ford C-max Energi will be priced higher than the $25,000 estimate. Ford does need to compete with the Toyota Prius V which is priced around the mid-$20K range. EVNow’s blog c-maxenergi.com thinks the Ford C-max Energi price will be $34,500.
