These days, people in Utah are finally opening their eyes to the importance of sustainability and being environmentally conscious. More and more drivers are buying into the idea of hybrid cars and that, my friends, is a huge relief. Utah is a beautiful place to live and growing hybrid popularity will help keep it that way.
Car companies are helping by pumping out the technology, affordability and usability of new hybrid cars that rock. The Prius was one of the first cars to make it big in the hybrid market in America, but more and more hybrids are emerging and the competition is getting pretty tough. It’s safe to say the Prius is no longer king of the environmentally friendly cars.
The Ford C-Max hybrid is is toe-to-toe with the Prius — and winning. In a recent test the Ford C-Max outlasted the Prius on road trips as it travelled 571 miles on a single tank, leaving the Prius behind. The Ford C-Max also K.O.’d the Prius in horsepower, by like 40%. The Prius packs 138 HP in its hybrid engine while the Ford C-Max weighed in with 188.
