Plug-in hybrid vehicles will operate under electric power until the battery is depleted. At that point, the gasoline engine will kick in and power the car. Under pure battery power, the Fusion Energi has an estimated range of 21 miles. The gasoline system then provides an additional 588 miles. These two numbers combined allow the total range of the Fusion Energi to break the 600-mile mark. This is an increase of over 50 miles from the 2016 Ford Fusion Energi.
