Hybrid Technology


(2012 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Shown Above)

Hybrid efficiency meets Lincoln luxury.

Getting 41 city mpg, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid can take you more than 700 city miles on a single tank of gas, making it the most fuel-efficient luxury sedan in America.*

Lincoln hybrid technology pairs a nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) battery-powered electric motor with a 2.5L Atkinson-cycle I-4 hybrid engine, providing a combined 191 hp. The vehicle can operate in electric mode when traveling up to 47 mph – the best top EV-mode speed in its class.** The traditional combustion engine takes over once 47 mph is reached, and also steps in if more power is needed at lower speeds.

The Regenerative Braking System helps keep the battery charged. When brakes are applied in a conventional vehicle, kinetic energy is lost to heat due to friction. Regenerative braking recovers more than 90 percent of the braking energy normally lost through friction and sends it to the battery pack to be stored for later use. This highly efficient system also helps minimize wear on the brake pads.
