Ford's all-new C-Max Hybrid is proving to be a hot commodity. During the C-Max's first full month of sales it was able to outsell is nearest competitor, the Toyota Prius v.

Ford sold 3,182 units of the C-Max Hybrid in October, besting the Toyota Prius v and its 2,769 sales during the month.

"The new C-MAX is off to a fast start in the heart of the hybrid market, not only outselling Prius v, but drawing a lot of interested Toyota customers who chose our new hybrid instead," said C.J. O'Donnell, manager, Ford Electrified Vehicles.

According to Ford, more than 70 percent of C-Max buyers either traded in a competitive model or purchased the hybrid without trading in another vehicle. About 25 percent of all C-Max Hybrids have been sold in California.

The Ford C-Max Hybrid is rated at 47mpg combined, which is 7mpg better than the Toyota Prius v.
