The 2013 Ford C-Max goes all California by becoming the first exclusively hybrid Ford vehicle!

Ford made a bet that American drivers would get used to, and even come to like, the high-roof design of the C-Max. Its tall proportions create a spacious interior in a small format – a layout common on the other side of the Atlantic but one that has struggled for acceptance in this market. Then, one might say, Ford went ‘all California’ and remade the American-market C-Max into the company’s first exclusively hybrid model. There is no gasoline-only C-Max offered in the United States, only hybrids: a standard gas-electric C-Max Hybrid and a plug-in version, called the C-Max Energi, which can recharge from the power grid.
