Going green, lean and very clean.

Sometimes it’s hard to think of new ways to meaningfully contribute to a greener planet on a personal scale.  Yet having an eco-friendly conscience doesn’t mean it can’t be fun, stylish and exhilarating.

Enter the all-new 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid, one of the most fuel-efficient AWD hybrid crossovers available today, freshly arrived at Hassett of Wantagh.

It’s not hard to love the XV on many levels.  Built in a zero-landfill plant with 100 percent of waste recycled or turned into electricity, the XV has unique engineering built in from the start, with go-anywhere capabilities and the lifestyle versatility to let you do what you love to do, and feel like you’re also doing your part.

The XV Crosstrek Hybrid features 17-inch alloy wheels, all-season tires, 8.7 inches of ground clearance, raised roof rails, and a versatile cargo area. It provides the right amount of engineering, energy and performance to enhance every aspect of a go-anywhere, do-anything lifestyle.

14CL_XVH_4C_AF35942_020718The Subaru Boxer® engine has a low center of gravity for agile handling backed by dedicated all-wheel drive to distribute power and deliver a constant grip on the road.  In fact, the 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient AWD hybrid SUV crossover in America, delivering 31 MPG (combined gas/electric), with loads more capabilities––and fun––than a hybrid sedan.

Which is why you can go anywhere in the XV Crosstrek Hybrid with family and friends, and have extra space for a clean conscience aboard.

EVERYTHING YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT HYBRIDS

Hybrid technologies powering automobiles with a combination of gasoline and electricity are still relatively new, and they’re advancing so quickly it can be hard to keep up.

Understandably, even seasoned motorists have their questions and doubts. What if the battery loses its charge? Is the interior no-frills and boring? Can an electric car deliver enough power and control? And aren’t these new hybrid technologies super-expensive?

“Gas and Oil Free” is the New Normal with the Focus Electric

In late 2000, hybrid gas/electric cars were just getting started and the naysayers were already piping up, calling the plug-in electric versions stillborn.  Every new technology needs an incubation period, including building a service infrastructure. Now a dozen years later, it is clear their predictions have happily run out of gas.

In 2012 alone, sales of hybrid and plug-in vehicles such as the Focus Electric, 100% powered by a rechargeable battery, jumped 228%.  While still a small piece of the overall market, it is growing at a much greater rate than other powertrain models, as the economy continues to hiccup and gas prices are steep.

Wider adoption, more accessible pricing, more efficient battery technology and the rollercoaster of gas prices proved the tipping point.

“We find many of our customers are simply tired of gas price spikes when something happens in the Middle East or Texas or California,” says Lou Evans, General Sales Manager at Hassett of Wantagh, Long Island’s  #1 volume Ford-Lincoln dealer and 10x consecutive winner of  Ford’s prestigious President’s Award.  “Plus, they genuinely appreciate the efficiency and design and clean nature of vehicles like the Focus Electric.”

Hassett offers a range of hybrid and electric plug-ins, with sales jumping 400% in New York State this year alone.  The Focus Electric is Ford’s robust entry into the plug-in market with excitingcutting edge design, styling and driver-experience enhancing technology inside and out.
