The C-Max Hybrid is more of a hatchback than a minivan: The second-row doors open conventionally, rather than slide open. Competitors to the C-Max Hybrid include the Toyota Prius. A plug-in version of the C-Max dubbed C-Max Energi can be charged to increase the electric motor's ability to move the car gas-free.

The principle difference between the C-Max Hybrid and C-Max Energi is the Energi's plug-in capability. Plug it in — Ford says the Energi can get a full charge overnight on a household 120-volt outlet — and the C-Max Energi can putter around on electric power alone for substantially longer than a C-Max Hybrid.
- Total drivetrain output of 195 hp
- Programmable battery charging
