2020 Ford Fusion Energi Performance Review

Scorecard

Performance: 6.7

The 2020 Ford Fusion Energi accelerates quickly from a stop, but it struggles to reach passing speeds on the highway. Its ride is more comfortable than sporty, and its subpar all-electric driving range doesn’t measure up to several class competitors.

  • "The Energi isn't much fun to drive either since any inherent sprightliness has been blunted by the extra weight and killjoy tires. If fun is what you want, look elsewhere." -- Edmunds
  • "Driven sensibly, the Energi is pleasant, and the silent electric-mode operation and smooth ride are totally in character with the Platinum version's luxury pretensions." -- Car and Driver (2017)

Acceleration and Power

The Ford Fusion Energi has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that make a combined 188 horsepower. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is standard.

The Fusion Energi is ideal for driving on local roads and in the city. It accelerates immediately from a stop, but it can struggle to reach highway speeds. The CVT operates smoothly, and transitions between gas and electric power go mostly unnoticed. 

Using a standard 110-volt household outlet, you can fully charge the Energi’s battery in about seven hours. A 220-volt outlet reduces that time to 2.5 hours.

The EPA rates the 2020 Fusion Energi’s fuel economy at 103 MPGe and 42 mpg combined city/highway, which is decent for a midsize hybrid. However, its 26-mile all-electric driving range is on the low end for a plug-in hybrid.

  • "The Fusion Energi's acceleration is quick and smooth enough, but the rest of the Energi's abilities are unimpressive." -- Edmunds
  • "Around town, electric operation is pretty punchy and swift thanks to the characteristics of electric motors, which provide maximum torque right off the line. That smooth, rapid acceleration peters out, however, once you get above roughly 40 mph, making highway on-ramps an exercise in patiently planning your actions well in advance. The Energi is an extremely quiet car even with the gasoline engine in operation, making for a serene cruising experience at just about any speed." -- Cars.com (2017)

Handling and Braking

The front-wheel-drive Fusion Energi’s steering is pleasantly light and accurate, but the sedan has a clumsy ride and significant body lean around turns. The regenerative brakes feel inconsistent, meaning they can be overly sensitive one moment and weaker than expected the next.

  • "The terrible brakes deserve a special mention. The modulation is subpar, making it difficult to be smooth. The feel is synthetic, and the brakes act grabby (or not) depending on how much pressure you're applying and when. Panic-stopping distances are mediocre." -- Edmunds
  • "Steering feel is reasonably good, but handling is not the Fusion Energi's strongest attribute. … It leans through corners with considerably more body roll than its siblings, and its tires are better suited for fuel economy than spirited grip." -- Cars.com (2017)
  • "The low-rolling-resistance tires prioritize fuel economy over grip, so sharp maneuvers prompt a fair bit of squeal followed by urgent intervention from the stability-control system. Driven more calmly, both the steering and the brakes offer wonderfully natural feel." -- Car and Driver (2017)
