Going “Green”? Come to Kearny Pearson Ford

green cars

You can recycle, upcycle, and bring your own reusable grocery bags to Trader Joe’s. But more and more drivers around the San Diego area are realizing the environmental impact of their driving and looking for environmentally-friendly “green” cars as a result. They should be taking a close look at the Ford models at Kearny Pearson Ford. Here are our favorite green cars.

2017 Ford Focus Electric

The Ford Focus is a perennial favorite. The 2017 Ford Focus Electric puts the same good looks and great handling on top of an all-electric drivetrain. Its 100-mile range is an improvement of 24 miles over the 2016 model, and it reaches a full charge in roughly three and a half hours on 220v current. If most of your driving is local or regional, this is a perfect fit. There’s not much of an exhaust note, admittedly. But the trade-off is a car with zero emissions and — more importantly for many drivers — zero trips to the gas pump.

2017 Ford C-MAX Energi / 2017 Ford C-MAX Hybrid

Like the Ford Fusion above, the 2017 Ford C-MAX comes in both hybrid and Ford C-Max Energi variants. However, unlike the Ford Fusion — which has a traditional gas-only version — the Ford C-MAX was designed from the ground up as a dedicated hybrid MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle). That allows for a fun and distinctive look that sets it apart from the competition, and since this is a Ford vehicle, you’re liable to forget that this is a “green” car. Just take it on its own terms — ample cargo space, a fun drive, and a ton of great tech — and enjoy yourself.

2017 Ford Fusion Energi / 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid

The 2017 Ford Fusion Energi and 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid get a welcome and extensive facelift this year, so you get some style to go with your substance. Spring for the Platinum trim for a truly luxurious experience with the kind of quiet you typically only get in your average library or cathedral.

One advantage of plug-in hybrids, or PHEVs, is that they can be run all-electric. The Ford Fusion Energi has a 20-mile all-electric range, meaning that you can go even longer periods of time without seeing a gas pump.

Ford isn’t exactly synonymous with green cars. However, the diversity of their lineup is promising, and their investment of 4.5 billion dollars into green tech means they’re putting their money where their mouth is.
