New Econetic version of the Mondeo has been launched at the Geneva motor show
9 February 2011

Ford has launched a new 114g/km version of the Mondeo Econetic at the Geneva motor show.

A new 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi engine with 113bhp will power the model, which will also feature Ford’s new stop-start system taken from its new 158bhp 1.6 Ecoboost engine.

Ford hasn’t offered an ultra-frugal Econetic version of the Mondeo since the range was facelifted late last year. The previous five-door Mondeo Econetic was powered by a 2.0-litre diesel and managed combined economy of 54.3mpg; Ford has yet to reveal a figure for the new model.

The new engine will also be available in the S-Max and Galaxy, which share a platform with the Mondeo, but performance and economy figures for these models have yet to be confirmed.

Ford has also launched a new version of the Ka at the Geneva show. Called Metal Ka, it is part of Ford’s Individual programme that offers more distinct exterior and interior colour options for its models. The Metal Ka reaches the UK in April.
