First all-new Ford Mondeo Hybrids leave the assembly line

Ford has started production of its all-new Ford Mondeo Hybrid - the first hybrid electric car built and sold by Ford in Europe.

The Mondeo Hybrid combines a specially-developed 2.0-litre petrol engine with an electric motor and 1.4 kWh lithium-ion battery for 67.3 mpg (combined),
reaching 100.9 mpg for urban driving and 99 g/km CO2 emissions*.

"The Ford Mondeo Hybrid offers consumers the best of both worlds: the enhanced efficiency and reduced emissions of electric power, and the range and performance of a traditional powertrain," said Roelant de Waard, VP, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe.

"With a range of Ford vehicles that also includes the Focus Electric, as well as fuel-efficient ECOnetic diesel and EcoBoost models, our customers will soon have more options than ever to optimise running costs."

The all-new model is produced at Ford’s state-of-the-art plant in Valencia, Spain.

The widest-ever range of powertrains for Mondeo includes Ford's new 1.5 litre EcoBoost petrol and enhanced 2.0-litre TDCi diesel. The Mondeo Hybrid offers pricing competitive with Mondeo diesel powertrain variants, delivering on Ford's promise to give fuel-efficiency-minded customers the power of choice.

The all-new Ford Mondeo Hybrid is available in the UK from December a four-door saloon from £24,995 - the same as its 2.0-litre diesel Mondeo Titanium Powershift five-door equivalent.
