My good friend and talented industry pal Kari Hawker stopped by for her Ford segment on KUTV's Fresh Living, and she wowed me with some stats about Ford's new Hybrid - the C-Max.
47 miles to the gallon!
And the little leafs on the dashboard GROW when you are driving responsibly (not stopping and starting abruptly, etc.)!
And the first 60 miles of your trip use only electricity!
And you can operate a lot of the functions, and check its stats, from your phone!
OK, we kind of want one. But more importantly, we had a blast trying to re-park this little car in a place that looked pretty for the segment.
"Driving these cars make me nervous!" Kari confessed, a look of surprise and concern on her beautiful face in the midst of a four-point turn.
The belly laughs commenced as we stopped-and-started our way up onto the sidewalk, backing up and turning around in a whirlwind of silliness.
So, even though we weren't driving it very eco-friendly like, I just wanted to let you all know that this awesome, Earth-loving car exists. Thank you, Kari, for the info (and ab workout!).
