I don't see many 2013 Fusion Hybrids where I live yet, but I have seen a number of Tesla Model S.


Same here. Have seen more Teslas than FFHs so far, including one Sunday in the church parking lot. Maybe they're waiting for the pricier Hytaniums and NRGs to arrive.

Seeing a reasonable number here in the northern VA area, even saw one that had been repainted in school bus yellow and was being used as a taxi. 

 

That would be odd to see it turned into a taxi!!

 

Wow.  That's a lot of Fusions!  

 

I parked across the street from one today when I went out for lunch.  It was a silver hybrid.  Whoever owned it had pasted Aston Martin wings over the Ford badge in the front and was sporting a not-so-legal Aston Martin tag on the front where the front license plate is supposed to be!  The back had CA tags so I know it wasn't an out of state person.  

 

That's pretty hilarious.

 

There's a black SE Ecoboost we see fairly regularly in our neighborhood, so I think it lives nearby. An older couple drives it, they passed me yesterday while I was walking home from work. There's a Ginger Ale one that works at the office tower where one of our subsidiaries is located, I've seen it in the parking ramp when I've been over there for meetings. And there's a blue one in the neighboring office building to where I work. Those are all gas models though. According to the hybridcars.com February Dashboard 15% of all Fusions solds are hybrids, so we should start seeing more of them. Whenever I see another Fusion I look first at the rims, as the hybrid-specific rims are one of the easiest ways to identify the hybrid quickly (however, that doesn't work if someone upgraded to the 18-inch rims...)

 

It's fun to see other Fusions out there on the road. Since buying the 2013 I've also started noticing the older Fusions a lot more than I used to...

Saw a gray one today, not as sharp looking as the other colors, but still stands out to know its a Fusion.

I almost collided with a gray one that jumped out in front of me while I was on my way home from work yesterday (that was after I had posted about the silver one).  So, yes, they are starting to show up more and more.

Okay now I am seeing more Fusions. I saw 3 yesterday on my way to work. 1 of them was a white Hybrid.

I saw one in Ginger Ale color too. Definitely not fond of that color...

This is weird but it seems to as if Silver and the Grey color seem a little understated in the Fusions. Whites, black, reds and blues seem to make the car stand out more. At least in my eyes.

Not to say that silver and gray are bad colors at all. But they seem to make the car blend in more with the rest of surrounding traffic.

I saw a few in the last couple days. One thing struck me as odd. Both of them I saw at twilight with their lights on. One of the cars tail lights were lit up around the edge of the light, like a halo. The other cars tail lights were only lit in the center of the light, inside the halo. Neither of them were braking as they were flying down the highway. Is there a difference in how the lights glow with different trim?? Maybe I was just seeing things.

Titanium trim models will have the better looking tail lights at night. I believe the halo around the tail lights

Agree with the silver and gray.  It's not to my taste, anyway, though I know others here love theirs in those colors.  But they do seem understated a bit, to me.

Saw a gray one on Thursday in the same general area as the one that jumped in front of me.  Gave him a scowling look, but he was too far away to notice.  I guess I already have a Fusion-enemy.  Or is it a Fusenemy?

Awesome, I liked how those looked, and since i'm getting a Titanium I guess that's a good thing.

Since December 2012 I've only seen two 2013 Ford Fusions on the road in California and today is March 12, 2013.

They are nice looking cars and I expected to see more.

My wife and I looked at an Ice Blue w/Dune and we didn't like it. Looks nothing like the promo pics. We chose the Bordeaux w/dune. I wish they made it with the Frost color that comes on the Escapes. Might have bought that.

I have seen them and I must say, if you want to own a fusion that states, "It's a Hybrid" the Ice Storm Metallic color does it very well and very elegantly. Pair it with the 18" Luxury SE silver wheels and be rewarded with a very nice and elegant looking car! I have seen the Dune interior as well as my test drive vehicle was a Ruby Red w/Dune interior. I liked it.

 Bordeaux w/dune. 

 

Good choice! 

 

I got a glimpse of an Ice Storm on the road once.  Seemed a little greenish to my eye but I am always in those arguments about whether something is more green or blue :)

 

I do have a dune interior, and I must say I love it, even though it wasn't want I thought I wanted.  Now that I have it, I can't imagine the car with black.

In the past week, I've more than doubled my Fusion sightings compared with the past four months. The lack of a Dune type interior on other cars eliminated them as canidates. If the Escape had a Dune leather interior option, it is very likely I would have purchased a Frosted Glass one and not waited for the Fusion. The Dune color makes the interior look bigger, and for me it is more calming. So far, not a bit of dirt or ware is showing.
