Ford introduces Fiesta and Fiestavan ECOnetic

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 30, 2012

ECOnetic Technology models will offer lower emissions levels from 95 to 87g/km of CO2 and will have a better combined fuel economy to 85.6mpg as it makes use of new high-tech advances for the top-selling car and small van in the UK a.k.a. Ford Fiesta and Fiesta Van.

They get the original equipment that were used as standard on the Fiesta and FiestaVan ECOnetic, such as rolling resistance tyres, an aero pack comprising undershield and wheel deflectors, variable flow oil pump and shift indicator light.

These models and its facilities are sustainable. The facility that makes Ford’s Dagenham-built Duratorq TDCi engines gets all its electricity from renewable sources, with three dedicated wind turbines.

There are three trim levels offered for the Ford Fiesta with ECOnetic Technology -- Edge, Zetec or Titanium – to meet the various customer needs. With its impressive fuel economy, those who buy the model could avoid UK road tax (Vehicle Excise Duty) contributions. However, the refinement and pleasant personality of the original Fiesta is unchanged.

The Ford Fiesta is offered with even higher value with its five engines in the Fiesta range having very little emissions of lower than 130g/km of CO2 to make them exempt from vehicle excise duty in their first year. Among these engines are 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.
