NY Show: 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Returns 41mpg in the City

Wednesday, March 31, 2010 | 0 Comments » Categories | Hybrids, Lincoln, Lincoln MKZ, New Cars, New York Auto Show |

Following in the footsteps of its Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan siblings, the Lincoln MKZ will be offered with FoMoCo's new hybrid powertrain that comprises of a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that churn out a combined output of 191HP.

Lincoln's first-ever hybrid model is expected to deliver at least 41mpg (5.7 lt/100km) in the city and reach speeds of up to 47 mph (75 km/h) in pure electric mode.

Ford stresses that both these figures are better than the MKZ Hybrid's closest rival, the Lexus HS 250h, which returns 35mpg in the city and reaches a top speed of 25mph in battery-only mode.

The 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid will have its world premiere today at the New York Auto Show with sales to follow in the fall.
