Lifecycle cost experts at Vincentric put together a cost-of-ownership analysis of hybrid models last November, analyzing 27 models from 2011 and 2012 model years using data from its October 2011 database update.
The 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid saves owners on average $4,438 compared to the gasoline MKZ version. Lincoln might not be the first automaker that comes to mind for hybrids, yet its MKZ fuel sipper returns the best cost of ownership differential over its gas-only brother. It's not hard to understand why, as the MKZ hybrid is offered at the same price as the standard MKZ. It also offers the most fuel economy savings of any hybrid-ICE vehicle in the report.
The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid is one of three luxury limousine vehicles that is part of the Ford Fleet Limousine & Livery Vehicles line-up.
