Both the 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid and the 2017 Ford Fusion Energi sit atop the green car market as desirable options, but when it comes to making a purchase, you may be wondering which model makes more sense for you. In today's post, we will highlights the advantages of both to ultimately help you determine which Ford model is right for you.

The 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrd is the perfect vehicle for anyone that is looking for a stylish hybrid at an affordable price. The Fusion Hybrid, for instance, starts at $25,675. When it comes to the 2017 Ford Fusion Energi, however, you're going to have to pay just under $34,000, but you will likely receive more in government incentives being that it boasts an electric motor.

Both the Fusion Hybrid and the Fusion Energi boast a similar 2.0-liter base engine that outputs 188-horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. However, the Fusion Energi will go up to 20 miles on electricity alone before it engages the engine. This makes the Energi a more desirable option for drivers that engage in short commutes and have access to a charging station at work. When it comes to safety and entertainment, both models offer the Sync 3 infotainment system and regenerative braking systems.

What it ultimately comes down to is the price and range. If you're looking for a top-of-the-line, entry-level luxury model with up to 20 miles of electric range and your office offers a charging station, the Fusion Energi may be for you. If affordability is most important to you, and you don't have access to a charging station, the Fusion Hybrid may be the better option.
