NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- After over 20,000 miles in General Motors' (GM - Get Report) Chevrolet Volt, it was time to test Ford Motor's (F - Get Report) answer to the Volt, the C-Max Energi, for a 1,247-mile drive, mostly at high speeds of 65-75 miles per hour. The verdict is complicated.Let's start with the body: The Ford is a tall but somewhat short station wagon. Think of it as a mini-mini-minivan. The only drawback is the battery intrudes materially into the trunk space, which will be a deal-killer for many potential buyers.
