Automotive News reported that the last Ford C-max hybrid was built Friday in Wayne, MI.

I haven't seen a report yet on the total number of C-max's produced 2012-2018.

I plan on keeping mine several more years, and to enjoy its scarcity value.

 

(Other Ford news reported that production at Ford's Mexico plants (Fusion, Lincoln MKZ, Fiesta) is way down.)

Well, well, the end of an era. :sad:  Just 20 more years and our 2013 C-Max cars will be antiques! :)

    (Of course we might not be able to find any gasoline by then!  :stirpot:  Should have bought an Energi!)

RIP.  Plan to keep ours for in-town driving which it is perfect for.  May never replace it if it can last another 20 years, about my expiration date.

Interesting read, but not very encouraging.

I owned a 1963 Chevrolet Nova and the flywheel broke and the only place I could find a new one was Chevrolet. It was 37 years old at the time.

There were several C-max and Fusion hybrid batteries on Ebay last time I looked.  Seems to me salvage would be the place to get a replacement HVB.

 

 Suspension parts I looked at were shared with Focus and/or Mazda models. 

Used door locks are cheap (joke).
