20 Miles Electric Range : What does that mean ?

I've speculated on likely electric only range a couple of times. But now we have official word from Ford in a video that Fusion Energi has 20 to 21 miles of electric only range. It would be very surprising if C-Max Energi had a different range. So, what does that mean in terms of battery capacity, price and tax credit ?

Ford expands Plug-In line with Fusion Energi

Yes, Ford is doing the unthinkable. From zero plug-ins it will go to 2 plug-ins come this fall. Ahead of the Detroit Auto Show, Ford announced the new Fusion 2013 lineup. Apart from the gas version, we get a new Hybrid and a new Plug-In Hybrid, Fusion Energi. This Fusion PHEV joins the C-Max Energi that was announced last year at the Detroit Auto Show.
