  7. Cross-shopping the competition - Ford Fusion Energi

    Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Competitors
    We have been strongly considering the purchase of a Volt for a few months now, but given my analytic nature, I know I have to consider all options for new and slightly used cars, and balance features and costs to arrive at a decision of what truly is the "best car" for us. Like many Volt...
