Ford B-Max 1.0 EcoBoost to burn 4.9L/100km image

The North American based automaker Ford has recently announced that the B-Max model, with the 1.0 EcoBoost engine, will burn just 4.9 liters of fuel every 100 km.

According to the car manufacturer, the Ford B-Max will be the most economical model in its class and thanks to the EcoBoost technology, the vehicle will have an average fuel consumption of just 4.9 liters every 100 km. Ford says that the B-Max equipped with the 1.0 liter EcoBoost engine will generate a total output of 120 horsepower, close to the Meriva, but unlike the Opel model, which is averaging 6.1 liters of fuel every 100 km, the Ford vehicle will burn just 4.9 liters., while emitting 114 grams of CO2 per km.

The new technology like the start / stop system, with Eco Mode, which is helping drivers to “travel greener” and the Gear Shift indicator, which is offering precious info on when to change gear, is helping the new Ford B-Max to be an important player in the B-segment. Besides the 120HP output, the new 1.0 liter EcoBoost engine will also be available with 95 horsepower, along with a wide range of diesel units. The B-Max will be the first model to be made at the company’s new plant in Craiova, Romania, and the starting price is expected to be set at GBP12.000. The model will be officially presented at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March.
