Ford vans prove a clean and economical choice 27 March 2012

High-tech developments have made Britain's best-selling small van even cleaner, with emissions dropping from 95 to 87g/km of CO2 and combined fuel economy rising to 85.6mpg, according to Ford.

The improved efficiency, boosting the environmental performance of the Fiesta and FiestaVan's ECOnetic technology by over 12%, has been achieved through: auto-start-stop; upgrades to the 95PS 1.6-litre TDCi engine, including friction and combustion improvements and calibration optimisation; revised gear ratios; and smart regenerative charging.

Original equipment fitted as standard to the Fiesta and FiestaVan ECOnetic – including low rolling resistance tyres, an aero pack comprising undershield and wheel deflectors, variable flow oil pump and shift indicator light – is now carried over on all ECOnetic Technology models.
