Current sales of Ford’s Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi Plug-in Hybrid might stimulate the Blue Oval to adopt Randy Newman’s 1983 hit I Love LA as its signature tune. The mid-size stalwart started offering its 2017 model-year variation last month, and Ford says the Fusion’s two hybrid variants got a particularly big sales boost in Los Angeles, the largest United States vehicle market of any single town. Knowing that midsize sedan sales had actually been down about five percent for the year in LA, that need is specifically excellent.

For June, Ford Fusion Hybrid sales in LA increased 35 percent from a year previously, while Fusion Energi sales leapt 39 percent, as per the automaker. Ford tells that the plug-in hybrid can go 610 miles on a full tank of gas and a full battery charge, which implies intrepid Angelenos can take a trip from their home town north to the Oregon border without a fill-up or a charge.

Ford’s “green” Fusions were presently popular in LA, where the hybrid and plug-in hybrid accounted for more than 40 percent of Fusion sales during May. When it comes to total US sales through the very first five months of the year, outcomes were more blended. Countrywide, US Fusion Hybrid sales decreased 19 percent from a year earlier to 8,945 units, while Fusion Energi sales jumped 55 percent to more than 5,500 automobiles. With those greater June sales, the Fusion hybrid’s year-to-date sales gap narrowed to about 9 percent.

The Fusion Hybrid is priced at about $3,000 more than the standard-issue Fusion. The plug-in’s cost premium is rather a bit more substantial, at about $9,000. Ford released an entire press release about the sales numbers.
