New Fiesta and FiestaVan Econetic now deliver more than 85 mpg

New high-tech developments have made Britain’s best-selling car and small van even cleaner with latest emissions dropping from 95 to 87g/km of CO2 and combined fuel economy rising to 85.6 mpg*.

The significantly improved efficiency, boosting the environmental
performance of the Fiesta and FiestaVan featuring Econetic Technology by over 12 per cent, has been achieved through the introduction of:
> Auto-start-stop
> Upgrades to the 95 ps 1.6TDCi engine including friction and combustion improvements and calibration optimisation
> Revised gear ratios
> Smart regenerative charging
> EcoMode
> 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 line-up emitting less than 130 g/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 60 ps and 82 ps petrol engines and the latest 1.6-litre TDCi 95 ps Econetic Technology engine.
