Ford reveals 95g/km Focus
11 April 2011
Ford has announced its new Focus Econetic, on sale early 2012, which will emit less than 95g/km CO2 and achieve around 80mpg.
The brand's 1.6-litre diesel engine has been further optimised with a new injection system and turbocharger, enhanced charge air cooling and friction reduction technologies, according to the carmaker.
Additional features include improved aerodynamic package with standard active grille shutter, ultra-low rolling resistance tyres and revised final drive ratio.
The full range of Ford Econetic technologies is also shared with other new Focus models including auto-start-stop, regenerative charging, eco mode and shift indicator light
"The Focus Econetic is a testament to our company's relentless drive for technological innovation and commitment to environmental leadership," said Gunnar Herrmann, Ford's global medium car line director. "It's also going to be a great car to drive."
It will be available in both stylish five-door and estate bodystyles.
The existing Ford Focus 1.6 TDCi, which went on sale last month, and is available across all series, emits 109g while returning 67mpg.
