Looks like a pre-prod Escape Energi has been spotted:

I am very happy about this. One of the primary reasons I went with the C-Max was originally being set on the early Escape hybrids but them being so hard to come by (specifically the 2nd gen 08-12 models). If they do this one right, it'll very likely be my next car down the road when I decide to trade in the C-Max.

Now if they had an AWD version with 10KWH+ available that be my next vehicle after a Volt(while I wait for the used ones to drop in price).

There's some irony in this, given that the current C-MAX borrows many of its interior and exterior parts from the last-generation Escape. Now the Escape will "borrow" the C-MAX' powertrain. :) {Jonathan}

That's what I'm kinda hoping as well. The AWD shouldn't be too difficult. They managed it with the early Escape hybrid and it was a traditional mechanical AWD system rather than solely a second electric motor for the rear wheels like most AWD hybrids like to do.

I like the Cmax and don't need the bigger SUV.  Nice that they add it to the fleet but I hope that they don't delete the Cmax in the process.

They are moving the plant to China, to build the Focus. I've heard nothing about 2018 C-Max production.

China?  I thought originally there were going to Mexico?  But then Trump is going to stop them from going anywhere?

I'm not sure that they plan to build PHEVs for the North American market in China, but there is a huge demand for PHEVs in China due to regulation and/or incentives.  If they want some of that market, it makes sense to have at least an assembly facility there.

Ford's plans for its PHEVs and EVs have taken better shape since this image leaked, and sure enough, they include both a PHEV Escape and many others (although not C-MAXes or Fusions at this point):
 

 
Electrified future
 
Ford plans to introduce 13 electrified models by 2021, 7 of which it has identified.
• Police Responder Hybrid Sedan, 2018*
• Ford Escape plug-in hybrid, 2019
• Lincoln MKC plug-in hybrid, 2019
• Ford Expedition hybrid, 2019
• Lincoln Navigator hybrid, 2019
• Transit Custom plug-in hybrid, 
 2019* (Europe)
• Electric small SUV with 300-mile range (expected to be called
 Model E), 2020*
• Ford Mustang Hybrid, 2020*
• Ford F-150 Hybrid, 2020*

I might trade in my Escape and C-Max Energi for one of these.

You can't just put periods wherever you want. That's not how English works.

You can forgive him as he is a product of the Texas education system.  I too am a fellow smug Iowan.

 

BTW, the only one of their new vehicles I would be somewhat interested in, is the Transit PHEV. Unfortunately it is EU only. I guess after the C-Max, we will be looking elsewhere.

What really boggles me is they decided to give the Expedition a hybrid option but no sign of giving the Explorer one. You'd think with the Explorer being a more popular model and a tad smaller it'd be a shoe-in to have a hybrid option. Was mentioning this to my mom last night who has been itching to get into an Explorer.

 

I am really anxious though to see what upgrades they make to the overall hybrid platform and what is shared between models. Hopefully they bring back proper cooling for the battery packs.

I think Ford is STUPID to get rid of the Cmax, its an excellent car and the new 2017 does even better with MPG numbers they really needed to RAISE the MPG stated numbers back up to what they used to be if not better.

 

I'm really glad I have this car and its sad to see it not in production any more down the road.

The Expedition is only getting one because it shares power train with F150.
Agree the Explorer, Edge, and Tarus need ones
