Cars Creater Buys Ford C-Max Energi

Breaking up isn’t easy. That’s what creator Lyle Dennis realized when he couldn’t fit his wife and three kids into his Chevy Volt.

The Chevy Volt lover recently decided he needed an electric hybrid that could ferry all five members of his family, and the Volt just wasn’t meeting that critical need. So, after 14,000 miles and one leading enthusiasts’ website later, Dennis is courting the Ford C-Max Energi.

At a lower price than the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid, and 5 seats, the C-Max Energi is hitting all the right buttons for Dennis.

Of course, Dennis still has glowing reviews for the Volt, but it goes to show how important a seat for your third kid (if you have 3 kids) can be.
