Ford adds mild-hybrid to Fiesta line-up
Ford has added mild-hybrid technology to the Fiesta, promising enhanced efficiency and new safety technology.
Available from £19,860 with Fiesta Titanium, the 48V mild-hybrid “EcoBoost Hybrid” powertrain is said to improve fuel economy by up to 5%.
In addition, the new cars get driver assistance technologies including Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Speed Sign Recognition.
Roelant de Waard, vice president, marketing, sales & service, Ford of Europe, said: “The Fiesta EcoBoost Hybrid will help Ford bring the benefits of electrification to more drivers than ever before.”
Ford is committed to offering an electrified version of every passenger vehicle it brings to market in Europe and will grow its range of electrified vehicles in Europe to 18 on sale before the end of 2021.
Fiesta’s non-hybrid powertrains are also further enhanced with the latest generation 1.0‑litre EcoBoost petrol engine and a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, for optimised fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions.
In addition, Fiesta is now better connected than ever following the introduction of a standard FordPass Connect modem enabling a range of functions to make the ownership experience easier and more rewarding using the FordPass mobile app.
