Putting power to the front wheels is a continuously variable transmission or eCVT (the "e" is for "electric"). The Fusion's power train is a no-frills system without paddle shifters or sports modes like the Honda Insight, or multiple hybrid power train modes like Toyota's hybrids. Just put it in Drive and go.
