If you're sick of emptying your wallet at the pump, you may want to think about switching to electric. More car manufacturers are moving toward hybrid and electric vehicles, giving consumers more green options than ever before. Ford recently came out with two hybrid electric vehicles: Ford Fusion Energi and Ford C-MAX Energi. Both vehicles run with a combination of gas and electricity. Drivers of the new Fords will get 108 MPGe and 620 miles on a single tank and charge. Common stereotypes of electric cars are that they're expensive and need to be charged frequently. The C-MAX Energi is priced under $30,000, making it America's most affordable plug-in hybrid. Ford promises with the combo of gas and electricity, their new cars can drive from Phoenix to Los Angeles without having to stop to refuel, even if you're driving at 80 mph. FOX 10's Kristin Anderson checks out the cars for herself.
