This funky five-door hybrid launched in 2013. Loved by strange individuals, it never really caught on, namely because Ford fudged the fuel economy numbers for it, twice. As a result, only a trickle of these cars rolled off dealer lots, likely meaning Ford took a loss on each one. If they’d been Teslas, most media would’ve declared the cars a roaring success.
