Power comes from the same 2-liter, double overhead cam, inline four cylinder with Atkinson cycle engine that’s in the new, fuel-efficient Ford C-Max.The engine is mated to an 88-kilowatt electric motor and battery pack — all of which automatically deliver and store power as needed. The driver doesn’t do anything but drive.
As a bonus, Ford includes the same ‘‘brake coach’’ that’s in the C-Max to give drivers feedback on whether their brake application is collecting and retaining as much regenerative power as possible.
A small display in the instrument panel tells instantly how much braking energy was recouped in a just-finished stop. .
