The C-MAX can travel up to 19 miles on electric power alone. Its battery only takes about 2.5 hours to fully recharge, and can charge from a standard 120-volt wall outlet. This gives owners at least five hours of extended battery power.
The C-MAX Energi seats five passengers and is available in two trim models that include SE and Titanium. The Energi also comes in a non-plugin version.

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Ford C-Max invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Ford C-Max MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
