2012 Ford Fiesta Econetic


As the produciton of the new Ford Fiesta Econetic gets underway in Germany, Ford dealerships get ready to launch the most fuel efficient hatchback ever into the market.

New high-tech developments have made Britain’s best-selling car and small van even cleaner with latest emissions dropping from 95 to 87g/km of CO2 and combined fuel economy rising to 85.6mpg. It’s all down to a 95 hp 1.6 liter duratec diesel engine with a host of fuel saving features like auto start/stop.

Ford Fiesta’s value story continues with five engines in the Fiesta car line-up emitting less than 130g/km of CO2 making them exempt from vehicle excise duty in their first year. This includes the 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre TDCi diesel engines, the 1.25-litre 60PS and 82PS petrol engines and the latest 1.6-litre TDCi 95PS ECOnetic Technology engine.

Details in Ford press release:

The significantly improved efficiency, boosting the environmental performance of the Fiesta and FiestaVan featuring ECOnetic Technology by over 12 per cent, has been achieved through the introduction of:

  • Auto-Start-Stop
  • Upgrades to the 95PS 1.6TDCi engine including friction and combustion improvements and calibration optimisation
  • Revised gear ratios
  • Smart regenerative charging
  • EcoMode
  • Improved efficiency of the air conditioning, cooling fan and alternator

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

Sustainability is important not only for the car, but also for the facilities behind its manufacture. Ford’s Dagenham-built Duratorq TDCi engines are produced in a facility that derives all its electricity from renewable sources, with three dedicated wind turbines.

The Ford Fiesta with ECOnetic Technology has three trim levels to suit different customer requirements: Edge, Zetec or Titanium. Such advanced fuel economy avoids UK road tax (Vehicle Excise Duty) contributions, yet the refinement and fun-to-drive personality of the original Fiesta is retained intact.

* All fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures in g/km are from officially approved tests in accordance with EC Directive 93/116/EC.  Fuel economy figures quoted are based on the European Fuel Economy Directive EU 80/1268/EEC and will differ from fuel economy drive cycle results in other regions of the world.
