Ford has announced today that dealers will begin taking orders on the new C-Max Hybrid, due out later this fall. The C-Max Hybrid will carry a base price tag of $25,995 (excluding destination charge), which undercuts its closest competitor, the Toyota Prius V by $500.

The C-Max Hybrid will come equipped with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack delivering an estimated 141 HP. Fuel economy numbers hasn't been released, but Ford does say it will be America’s most “fuel-efficient hybrid utility vehicle”.

Features for the C-Max Hybrid include hands-free liftgate, rain-sensing windshield wipers, active park assist, MyFordTouch, and SmartGauge with EcoGuide. SmartGauge with EcoGuide shows real-time fuel economy and uses gauges to help drivers maintain a fuel-efficient driving style.

Nice, now to see if it really can live up to the hype and if people will pay for it compared to the volt.

Given that the Volt starts at $41K, that should be no problem since the C-Max undercuts that by $10K at least. A typical Prius V starts around $28K.

I guess this is the replacement for the Escape Hybrid.

It may well be a more practical replacement for the Escape hybrid. Kudos to Ford for taking direct aim at Toyota's halo car.

I wonder when GM will role out Volt technology in other vehicles. I love the Volt but want an AWD CUV version.

Don't know why there isn't more hype about this car, but I think, quietly, it will be one of the most important releases of MY 2013. It's the first-ever direct Prius competitor.

If it rides a bit like the Mazda 5, I would beg to differ... :)
