Lincoln's first hybrid is also being billed as the most fuel-efficient luxury car in North America.

Looking to build its position among high-mileage makers, Ford Motor Co. has been rolling out a variety of green products, and the latest entry into its line-up promises to give its high-line Lincoln brand bragging rights as the most fuel-efficient luxury car in America.

The marque’s first gas-electric model, the 2011 Lincoln MKZ, promises to deliver 41 miles per gallon in the EPA’s City cycle, a full 6 mpg more than its closest competitor, the Lexus HS250h.  The Lincoln also can operate in battery-only mode at speeds up to 47 miles per hour, compared with 25 mph for the Lexus in EV mode.

“Lincoln’s hallmarks are design, technology and comfort. Now, Lincoln also delivers the best fuel efficiency of any luxury sedan in America,” Mark Fields, Ford’s president of The Americas, declared in a press release.
