Ford has recently announced its plans to offer an eco-friendly version of the Focus, which will emit only 99 g/km of CO2 and it will be powered by the award-winning 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine.
According to the North American based automaker, the eco-friendly version of the Ford Focus will get an active shutter grille, low-rolling resistance tires, underbody aerodynamics, engine start/stop system, optimized gearing, regenerative brakes and some other tweaks, which will help it burn less fuel and emit less CO2 every km.
“Just a couple of years ago few would have thought that a medium-sized petrol car could break the 100g/km CO2 barrier. Ford’s 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine has a habit of taking expectations of what a petrol engine can deliver and turning them upside down”, said the Ford VP of European Product Development, Barb Samardzich.
The brand new eco-friendly Ford Focus will be powered by a 1.0 liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine, which is producing a total output of 100 HP (73 kW). The average fuel consumption in this model will stand at approximately 4.1L / 100km (67.5 mpg UK / 56.2 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions should stand at 99 g/km. The model in question will go on sale next year and its price will e announced close to its launch.
