Ford Focus ECOnetic

From Ford press: Ford’s range of economical TDCi diesel models features dedicated, ultra-high-efficiency ECOnetic derivatives, which feature an optimised specification for the best fuel economy and lowest possible CO2 emissions. The current Ford ECOnetic model line-up includes versions of the Fiesta, Focus, Mondeo and Transit, with CO2 emissions starting as low as 98g/km on the extremely frugal Fiesta ECOnetic.

For 2010, an updated Focus ECOnetic is launched, and can be specified with Ford's first Auto-Start-Stop System in Europe. This takes CO2 emissions down to a class-leading 99g/km with combined fuel economy of 3.8 l/100 km (74.3 mpg)*.

In addition to the highly efficient petrol and diesel powertrain offering, the new Focus range also incorporates other features from the Ford ECOnetic Technologies programme to help minimise fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Most notably, the Focus is the first Ford model to standardise Ford Auto-Start-Stop technology across a significant part of the range. All vehicles with the 1.6-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine and the 1.6-litre TDCi diesel engine – equating to around 50 per cent of the European sales volume – are equipped with Ford Auto-Start-Stop, which typically reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 10 per cent in urban driving.

For the ultimate in efficiency, the Focus range will be available with a dedicated, ultra-low CO2 ECOnetic derivative later in 2011.
