Fusion Hybrid Offers SmartGauge

Hybrid

The new Ford Fusion Hybrid has many innovative features. Unlike some of its main competition, notably the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Toyota Prius, the Fusion Hybrid has an innovative display system to monitor eco driving. Called SmartGauge, it consists of a four inch LCD colored screen with an "eco guide" to help drivers enhance fuel mileage. It works by showing fuel and battery power levels and fuel economy. When set in tutorial mode, the instrument panel shows leaves and vines appearing on the screen.

The more leaves and vines that appear, means that driving behavior is good and more fuel is being saved. Such an innovative and easy-to-understand system is not available on Toyotas.
