The Euro V emission regulations have claimed another victim as the Ford Focus ST has been killed off.

The Euro V emission regulations have claimed another victim as the Ford Focus ST has been killed off.

The hot hatch's turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine couldn't meet the stringent new regulations which go into effect in January.

While we will certainly miss the Focus ST, a new Euro V compliant model will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show. It is expected to feature a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with approximately 250 hp (186 kW / 253 PS).

As we have previously reported, Honda recently announced plans to stop European sales of Civic Type-R because it couldn't meet Euro V requirements.
