New 1.0-liter EcoBoost Ford Focus emits only 99 g/km of CO2

Article by Anita Panait, on August 14, 2013

A new ultra-efficient version of the Ford Focus 1.0-liter EcoBoost will be the first gasoline-run family car in Europe to offer carbon dioxide emissions of just 99 g/km. The Focus 1.0-liter EcoBoost returned 67.5mpg in mileage tests, all thanks to a calibrated 100PS version of the fuel efficient engine.

The new Ford Focus is set to feature Ford ECOnetic Technology – which includes ultra-low rolling resistance tires, distinct aerodynamics under the car and revised gearing – all designed to help increase the car’s fuel efficiency.

Barb Samardzich, European Product Development vice president, remarked that years ago, only a few thought that a medium-sized petrol car could break the 100g/km carbon dioxide emission barrier. He noted that Ford’s 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine “has a habit of taking expectations of what a petrol engine can deliver and turning them upside down.”

The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine makes the new Ford Focus considerably powerful than a first generation Ford Focus powered by 1.6-liter engine from less than a decade ago. Much more, the new Ford Focus will emit 47 percent less carbon dioxide than the first generation offering.

The new model brings to three the number of Focus models powered by the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, alongside the standard 100PS version that emits 109g/km of CO2, and the 125PS variant that emits 114g/km of CO2. Ford introduced the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine in 2012 to models like the Fiesta, B-MAX, C-MAX and seven-seat Grand C-MAX.

The carmaker will now fit the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine into the EcoSport SUV, Transit Connect, Transit Courier, Tourneo Connect, and the Mondeo. Ford’s 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine employs a low inertia turbocharger, split cooling system and direct fuel injection to be able to deliver impressive performance from the three-cylinder engine block.
