Ford starts production of first hybrid Mondeo
Crucially, the Mondeo Hybrid offers pricing competitive with Mondeo diesel powertrain variants. The four-door saloon Hybrid will be priced from £24,995, putting it on a par with its 2.0-litre diesel Mondeo Titanium Powershift five-door equivalent.
The Mondeo Hybrid combines a specially developed 2.0-litre petrol engine with an electric motor and 1.4 kWh lithium-ion battery, giving an official combined figure of 67.3mpg with 99g/km CO2 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 & 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 Ford Mondeo Hybrid four-door saloon is available in the UK from December.
