It’s been a while coming, but the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has finally approved gas-mileage ratings for the 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid. 

As Ford predicted, the $25,995 hybrid has achieved an official rating of 47 MPG City, but its highway rating of 47 mpg improved on Ford’s own estimate by 3 mpg. 

That gives the five-seat hybrid hatch one of the easiest gas mileage ratings to remember: 47 mpg city, 47 mpg highway, and 47 mpg combined. 

The official EPA ratings for the 2013 C-Max Hybrid place it in just behind the erstwhile 2012 Toyota Prius Liftback’s 50 mpg combined in the high gas mileage charts.

It also means the blue-badged hybrid is more fuel efficient than the 2012 Toyota Prius V and 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid.

Due to go on sale this fall, Ford’s first hatchback hybrid also offers some impressive features that Toyota has yet to match, including an all-electric top speed of 62 mph and a hands-free powered tailgate. 

It will be followed a few months later by a staged rollout of the 2013 Ford C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid, which Ford claims will have twice the electric range of the 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in hybrid.
