When Ford unveiled the 2013 Fusion Energi Plug-In Hybrid at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year, it said it expected the car to get “up to 100 mpge.” Late yesterday, Ford announced that official EPA rating is actually 108 MPGe in the city, which makes the Fusion Energi, “America’s most fuel-efficient sedan.” The Fusion Energi also gets 92 MPGe on the highway, for a combined rating of 100 MPGe.

For a quick comparison of other non-luxury plug-in hybrids, the 2013 Chevrolet Volt gets 98 MPGe (combined) and the Toyota Prius Plug-In gets 95 MPGe. So, while the Fusion Energi wins that contest (well, it ties with the C-Max Energi – and we don’t yet know what the numbers will be for the Honda Accord plug-in hybrid), we’d like to know how it fares when the lithium-ion battery runs out of juice. After all, the C-Max Energi drops to 43 combined miles per gallon on gasoline only. Ford’s announcement doesn’t say what the Fusion Energi gets in hybrid mode, but we know this information will be released by the EPA soon enough.

The Fusion Energi starts at $39,495.
