Can't say this does not intrigue me.

16-kwh battery (30 mile range)

2 hour charging time on 240v

 

Wish Ford would do something similar with the Flex.

Very interesting... the first offering of an Atkinson V6 too.

 

As most know, I wish they would do something like that to the F150. :)


I am The White Fury in Region 5 on MyFord Mobile.

A PHEV F150 would have me very interested as well :)

I'm looking forward to seeing this at our Auto Show in a few days. I imagine that the Pacific PHEV is going to be roped off, though. This would be a great next car for my aging parents. They find the height & size of minivans to be most comfortable for their stiff joints.

The ease of access is just the reason I went with the C-Max Energi over the Fusion. It is easier to get into than a minivan, and it gets better mileage. Have them try it out before looking at the vans.

They currently have a C-Max Energi. They got it in early 2013. The Pacifica would potentially replace their aging Nissan Murano. They find the C-Max to be too small for long drives. They only use it on short trips around town. They still do road trips to visit family & need something bigger than the C-Max for that.

Ah, yes, you have to be willing to live with the small cargo space. However, I don't have any trouble with just two people; I just put stuff in the back seat, or put the seats down if more space is needed. I've done a number of long trips with it - but never with more than 2 people on board.

 

Ironic isn't it? My dad (85) has a Honda minivan that they use for long trips. The only time I've owned a van is when the kids were young and I needed the space. As I get older, I feel the need to downsize (while keeping comfort, of course).

The issues for them is passenger space, not cargo space. They feel too confined in the front seats of the C-Max. The legroom is too limited for long trips, the elbow room/shoulder room is too minimal, etc.

OK. My wife is 4 foot 10 inches, so she is not that confined. Personally, I don't find the space that limiting, but I do keep the seat high.

My parents are 5'10 & 5'11, they're also both bigger, thus they find the space limiting.

I'm 5 11, and it is OK for me. But I do keep the seat higher, which makes a difference in leg room, and there is only one seat position that is really comfortable.
