C-max has actually slightly bigger motor then Leaf- 118Hp vs Leaf's 110Hp,but it's not the point. My original post was not about acceleration or Hp, but managing the vehicle space to accommodate just electric motor or both motor and gasoline engine with fuel tank, emission systems, cooling system in more or less similar size cars under the front hood. Except Tesla I had opportunity to have and use above cars for few days, each of them has pros and cons .Lost trunk space, carry gasoline engine as ballast in my case perhaps never to be used . C-max lack of standard back up camera and turning radius reminds me Yamato battleship make me to buy and really enjoy the Leaf.

May not be the point.. but you have me curious. Where did you get that figure for the Cmax? According to Wikipedia, it has a 68 kW electric motor which would translate to roughly 91 Hp. The Leaf has an 80 kW motor rated at 110 Hp.

68 Kw is not electric motor Hp but electric drivetrain can produce a peak power of 68 kW, the same as Leaf 24Kw battery can not produce over 80kw continuous output. C-max energy info I got from the dealer Service manual but also online- http://www.caranddriver.com/news/2013-f ... ive-review
or

or just google c-max 118Hp
