First Mondeo hybrids leave assembly line

2

Ford has started production of its Ford Mondeo Hybrid.

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 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, vice president, marketing, sales and 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 new model is produced at Ford’s state-of-the-art plant in Valencia, Spain.

The range of powertrains includes Ford’s new 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol and enhanced 2.0-litre TDCi diesel.

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

    I know we've waited a long time for the 'new' Mondeo to arrive, but good on them for bringing out a Hybrid too .... only shame is restricting it to a four door saloon. Surely at least the hatchback should be offered it too??
