I know this is totally random: I'm thinking of picking up tires + rims for my 2013 Fusion in my (girlfriend's) Energi. I haven't really done that before - most I've done is transported tires that were already mounted, and that was for a much older car. Any idea if all this will fit in the back?

 

Also, the pickup location has J1772 ports - making the 180 mile roundtrip slightly more tolerable, fuel-wise :)

Are the tires mounted on the rims?  Even if they aren't, you should still have room with only you and a front passenger.  I have a spare 17 inch wheel with a 205/50 tire for my daughter's car and placed it on the rear seats in their upright position and they alone could handle four of those.   You'll want to strap them down for safety.

Nope, they'll be brand new, so not mounted. Those pictures are really helpful - thanks!

I have transported 4 mounted tires in the back of my 2013 Energi.  But protects your interior with shipping blankets, etc. 

 

You might have to have those tires mounted first because I'm not sure how well they would fit in otherwise.  You would have to try it.
