I only have the 13 FFH, but am looking at getting a new or slightly used FFHE.

What I see are (new) 17's for very close to the cost of 18's

But I'm not sure if there is an advantage to an 18 over a 17.  Especially if the cost difference is minimal.

 

as far as features, I know I don't want the SE, so a Platinum or Titanium would be what I'd get.

 

This is not going to happen till summer anyway, so I'm sure the deals will happen, especially if the 19's are coming and the 18's price comes way down to get rid of them.  8)

 

 

No equipment differences between the '18s and '17s afaik. Maybe some color options were added or removed at best.

 

The '19s make some driver assist tech standard on all models, but add nothing that isn't already available on the '17s and '18s. The Energi version gets a slightly denser battery pack that increases its range to 25 miles - but if you drive like a grandma and are very conservative about climate control usage, you can easily exceed that with even the '13-'16 Energis.

 

Go with a '17 and negotiate hard. If they don't budge and the '18 is just a few hundred more, take the '18 instead. 

 

The Platinum was discontinued for 2019 btw - grab a remaining '17 or '18 Platinum while you can!

Is there any difference between a Platinum and a fully loaded Titanium?

The dashboard has more leather on it, and the seats use Nappa leather which is of higher quality. The steering wheel position is also power adjustable. However the Nappa leather only comes in one color. When it comes to tech, the Platinum is identical to a loaded Titanium.

What did you or will you buy after the Fusion Energi? 

 

Whatever I buy, it sure as heck won't be a Ford. Too many problems with my FFE and too little responsiveness from Ford. Not to mention 21 EV-almost miles is barely worth it when there are so many better choices out there.

 

I'm definitely interested in the Jaguar i-Pace coming later this year.

What better choices are out there that look like a car and not a roller skate and is at the price point of the Fusion Energi?

Fusion Energi starts at $31,400 and tops out at around $42,100. So most of the following would fit your criteria for "at the price point" (depending on configuration). As for not looking like a "roller skate," I assume you mean cars like the Chevy Volt, Toyota Prius Prime, Nissan Leaf, Chevy Bolt, and BMW i3, so I won't include those vehicles in the list.

 

Off the top of my head, I can think of the following:

  • Tesla Model 3 (if you can even get one this year)
  • Honda Clarity PHEV or BEV
  • Kia Optima PHEV
  • Hyundai Sonata PHEV
  • Hyundai IONIQ PHEV or EV
  • BMW 330e
  • Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
  • Audi A3 Sportback eTron
  • Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

Of course, if you're like me and only bought the Ford because the Volt was too small and the Tesla Model S was too expensive (meaning I could have afforded more, but couldn't find a plug-in that met my needs for a reasonable price), there are other cars:

  • Cadillac CT6 Plug-in (but note this doesn't qualify for HOV stickers in CA or the state rebate, despite having 31 electric miles)
  • BMW 530e
  • BMW X5 xDrive40e
  • Mercedes-Benz C350e
  • Jaguar i-Pace
  • Volvo XC60 PHEV
  • Volvo XC90 T8 PHEV
  • Volvo S90 T8 PHEV
  • Mercedes-Benz GLE 550e
  • Porsche Cayenne S-E

I saw the BMW 530e at the 2018 NAIAS - they even showed off a wireless charging pad for the car itself (you literally drive on top of it to charge, similar to charging a phone wirelessly). 

 

If it were reliable and had more than 15 miles of EV range, it would be my ideal car. 

 

The GLE 550e's existence is head-scratching - it gets about 8 miles of EV range...
