Hi all, I have been interested in the Ford Maverick Hybrid ever since it was announced. However, once the initial excitement wore off, I crunched a few numbers...and I'm more than a little skeptical of Ford's "40 MPG in the city" claim. First off, let's look at vehicle weight and battery capacity : Prius C : Weight = 2,500 lbs, Battery Capacity = 0.9 Kwh, EPA = 53 city / 46 hwy Gen3 Prius Liftback : Weight = 3,042 lbs, Battery Capacity = 1.3 Kwh, EPA = 51 city / 48 hwy Prius V : Weight = 3,274 lbs, Battery Capacity = 1.3 Kwh, EPA = 44 city / 40 hwy Ford Maverick Hybrid : Weight = 3,674+ lbs, Battery Capacity = 1.1 Kwh, EPA = N/A Just looking at these weight vs. battery capacity numbers...something seems a bit off. Do we really think folks are going to consistently get "40 MPG in the city"? I'm thinking Ford is pushing it here and many may end up disappointed...especially after adding options and such. Also odd that no EPA estimates exist yet. Of course, absolutely nobody is discussing this on any of the Ford forums, etc... So I thought I'd post here and see what people think. Incidentally, my neighbor has a hybrid F150 ( that has a 1.5 Kwh battery and weighs 4,465lbs - 5,014lbs ) and has been disappointed in the 'city' MPG number. The F150 is a completely different beast though...but worth thinking about as well. Long story short...I'm waiting on 'real world' MPG numbers before I would even consider it. Also, Toyota really blew it here by not offering a competitive small pickup truck. Thoughts?
