I assume serious model year fudging here, but what the heck;  as we know, there will be almost nothing new to look at anyway.

 

1, is a yawner;  2 ahh, OK, cover your ears on the MPG lines, but that Ruby Red is sure a 'looker';  & 3 kind of fun (2013 Energi).

I see no diff in terms of  :airquote: better aerodynamic as we heard earlier, seems the same to me. Some one might be better to spot the changes than my beer filled eyes ;)

I was wonder the same thing.

I don't think it's a 2014, they arn't going to start building them till Dec, or have they sent a few out for reviews?

 

If it is a 2014 then the PODs are really starting to look promising.

Regarding the first one from Frankfurt, Germany.  Is Ford launching the Energi in Europe, or just show-casing it to that audience for feedback?  It is almost certainly a 2013 from here.

 

Regarding the second, I would guess the vendor is just trying for hits by posting way early and using 2013s for props. Cheap trick?

I don't see any differences in the white Energi, particularly I looked at the rear airfoil and went out and looked at mine and they look identical.  There may be some subtle difference but I didn't see it.

I've read that Ford will be selling the 2014 Energi in Europe. Not the Hybrid though, probably too similar to the diesel model they already have.

That will be interesting to watch.  They do have the advantage of higher voltage circuits everywhere.  Quicker charge without rewiring.

where are the new mods for aerodynamic?

the video for number 3 clearly stated it was the 2013 model in the lower left corner.

please make sure you post accurate into. i think 2 of these are not for the new 2014 model at all.
