Fiesta gets greener

Fiesta gets greener

econeticFord has increased the efficiency of its ECOnetic Technology Fiesta models, with CO2 emissions dropping from 95 to 87g/km.

Car and van versions benefit from the improvements, achieved through the introduction of auto stop-start, upgrades to the 95PS 1.6TDCi engine including friction and combustion improvements and calibration optimisation, revised gear ratios, smart regenerative charging and improved efficiency of the air conditioning, cooling fan and alternator

Original equipment fitted as standard to the Fiesta and FiestaVan ECOnetic, including rolling resistance tyres, an aero pack comprising undershield and wheel deflectors, variable flow oil pump and shift indicator light, is carried over on ECOnetic Technology models.

Sustainability is important not only for the car, but also for the facilities behind its manufacture. Ford's Dagenham-built Duratorq TDCi engines are produced in a facility that derives all its electricity from renewable sources, with three dedicated wind turbines.

The Ford Fiesta with ECOnetic Technology has three trim levels to suit different customer requirements: Edge, Zetec or Titanium. Such advanced fuel economy avoids UK road tax (Vehicle Excise Duty) contributions, yet the refinement and fun-to-drive personality of the original Fiesta is retained intact.

Ford Fiesta's value story continues with five engines in the Fiesta car line-up emitting less than 130g/km of CO2 making them exempt from vehicle excise duty in their first year. This includes the 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre TDCi diesel engines, the 1.25-litre 60PS and 82PS petrol engines and the latest 1.6-litre TDCi 95PS ECOnetic Technology engine.
