The dynamic, all-new Lincoln MKZ Hybrid delivers more miles per gallon than any luxury vehicle in America with an EPA-certified 45 mpg across the board – city, highway and combined.
“The all-new MKZ Hybrid proves that thoughtful customers who prioritize fuel economy and reducing emissions do not need to compromise on luxury, driving quality or advanced technology,” said Jim Farley, group vice president, Global Marketing, Sales and Service. “MKZ is our strongest proof yet on what the reinvented Lincoln stands for – beautiful vehicles with compelling and warm experiences that create a clear alternative in today’s increasingly competitive luxury marketplace.”
EPA ratings put MKZ Hybrid ahead of its key competitors in the luxury midsize sedan market – 5 mpg city and 6 mpg highway ahead of Lexus ES 300h; 18 mpg city and 13 mpg highway ahead of Infiniti M35h and 20 mpg city and 16 mpg highway ahead of BMW ActiveHybrid 3.
Additionally, the new MKZ Hybrid is 2 mpg city and 5 mpg better highway than the smaller Lexus CT 200h. The 2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid also is more fuel efficient than Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles.
Lincoln is offering the new MKZ Hybrid at the same price as the equivalent non-hybrid model, giving luxury midsize sedan customers maximum choice as well as top fuel economy, true luxury sedan performance and superb value.
Lincoln was the first automaker to offer a premium hybrid vehicle with a suggested retail price matching its conventional-powered sibling.
Other competitors charge a premium for their hybrid models. The 2013 Lexus ES 300h, for example, is priced at $38,850, representing a $2,750 premium over the 2013 Lexus ES 350.
