GE To Add Ford Plug-In Hybrids To Fleet Of Volts, Other Electric Cars

General Electric is adding a large fleet of 2013 Ford C-Max Energi plug-in hybrids to its growing fleet of plug-in and electric vehicles.

The 2,000 Energi models will join GE’s existing fleet of Chevrolet Volts and other plug-ins.

The deal is Ford’s largest delivery of plug-in vehicles so far. For GE, it now means that 10 percent of its fleet, or around 5,000 vehicles, is now made up of alternative-fuel vehicles.

That goes some way to reaching GE’s initiative to convert half of its global fleet to alternative fuel vehicles, a scheme which it dubs “ecomagination”.

Ford’s C-Max Energi is currently America’s most fuel-efficient plug-in hybrid, with a 108 MPGe city rating according to the EPA. Range is quoted at 620 miles on a single tank, ideal for some of the company’s long-distance operatives. GE’s fleet of Volts is also fairly efficient, with an EPA combined rating of 94 MPGe on electricity, and 37 mpg combined on gasoline.
