Green Car Journal recently named the 2013 Ford Fusion, now available at Marketplace Ford, as the Green Car of the Year.
Online PR News – 07-December-2012 – Devils Lake, ND – The Green Car Journal, an editorial magazine that attempts to provide an automotive view on global environmental issues, has now selected the 2013 Ford Fusion as the Green Car of the Year. This magazine puts an emphasis on the enjoyable nature of driving but, at the same time, provides a realistic a responsible opinion about the need for balance between the energy a vehicle uses and its impact on the environment it operates within. From as early as 1992, the magazine has shown that environmentally friendly vehicles can be fun and enjoyable with articles written by expert auto journalists.
Some of the major factors in the Green Car Journals decision for Green Car of the Year include a vehicle’s affordability, availability at dealerships, fun-factor, and daily drivability. A panel of judges, including car-nut Jay Leno, and automotive journalists were tasked with deciding which vehicle to announce as winner at the LA Auto Show on Nov. 29th. While there was a good deal of competition from the four other finalists that were chosen, the Fusion was decidedly more favorable than the Dodge Dart Aero, Toyota Prius C, Ford C-Max, and Maxda CX-5.
Because the Fusion is readily available at dealerships across the country at an affordable and realistic price, the Fusion is considered to be much better for the environment than even the Tesla Model S which is an all-electric vehicle. It is believed that this sedan can make a larger positive impact on the environment simply because it is a more reasonable substitute for fuel-guzzling vehicles. Also key to the Fusion’s recent victory are its unmistakable styling, extreme versatility, and exceptional performance and handling for such a fuel efficient vehicle. While other candidates only offered one or two fuel-efficient engines, the 2013 Ford Fusion is available with three separate fuel-efficient engines, a hybrid setup, and a yet-to-be-released plug-in hybrid powertrain. It is for all of these reasons that the Fusion has been honored by the Green Car Journal at the LA Auto Show.
Customers interested in getting into a fuel efficient and sporty sedan with great styling should put the 2013 Ford Fusion high on their list of vehicles to check out. Here at Marketplace Ford in Devils Lake, ND the Fusion is in stock and ready for a test drive.
