The 2013 Ford Fusion hybrid flirts with 50 miles per gallon ... Lexus shows us its new concept car ahead of the Paris motor show ... And the Nissan DeltaWing is ready to go racing again.

Plenty of carmakers brag about getting 40 miles per gallon. But Ford is closing in on the 50-mpg mark -- and not with a stripped-down compact either. Ford says the hybrid version of the redesigned Fusion sedan has been certified to deliver 47 mpg in city, highway and combined driving. That gives the Fusion a 4 mile per gallon advantage in city driving over the Toyota Camry hybrid. Of course, the regular Fusion is a gas-sipper, too. The base turbocharged 1.6-liter four-banger gets up to 37 mpg on the highway. The new Fusion will be in dealer showrooms about a month from now.

Press preview days for the Paris motor show are about a week away, which means automakers sending out first looks at some of their new cars. Among them is Lexus, which is bringing a new concept car to Paris -- the LF-CC coupe. At first glance we see this concept as a preview for a redesign of the Lexus IS. But styling cues from the previous Lexus LF-LC concept are evident too. The LF-CC rolls with, what else? A hybrid powertrain -- in this case a four-cylinder gasoline engine mated to an electric motor. Check out all the news from the Paris motor show at http://www.autoweek.com/section/paris....

Finally for today, the ground-breaking . You'll remember that the DeltaWing, with its long nose and closely spaced front wheels, first took on the world at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. But its race was over early after being forced off the track and damaged beyond repair. Now Nissan, which has supplied money and engines to the DeltaWing project, says the car will race in the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta in mid-October. The Petit Le Mans runs for 10 hours and 1,000 miles. Get all the details on the DeltaWing's return at http://www.autoweek.com/article/20120....
