Ford’s electrified family car now starts from £26,640, £1800 less than before. Focus ST auto now off sale, too
5 November 2019

Ford has revamped its Mondeo Hybrid saloon and estate range with the addition of two new trim levels, dropping the entry price down by £1800.

The entry-level range addition is the Mondeo Zetec Edition hybrid, which is available to order now from £26,460 for the saloon and £37,960 for the estate. It still includes kit such as Ford’s Sync 3 touchscreen infotainment and sat-nav, dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors and pre-collision assist.

Also now part of the range is a Mondeo Hybrid ST-Line Edition - the first time the petrol-electric model has been made available with Ford’s sportier trim levels. It starts from £29,360 for the saloon and £30,780 for the estate, and brings a bodykit, 19in alloy wheels, sports-style part leather seats and interior details, and ‘sport tuned suspension’.

The Mondeo Hybrid is still powered by the same 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to a 35kW electric motor for a combined 184bhp. Claimed CO2 emissions drop to 94g/km for the Zetec Edition, likely due to its smaller wheel size.

Further changes to Ford’s line-up include the removal of the automatic gearbox option from the recently launched Focus ST across Europe. A spokesman told Autocar that it has been pushed back to the middle of 2020 due to “homologation improvements” needed to reach WLTP standards.

So an extra £3,100 (165ps Auto) will get you a small battery, call that progress?

Hard to believe it used to be even more.

Is that £3100 more than the equivalent standard petrol model? If so you are getting more power, lower emissions and better fuel economy, but agree £3100 is a lot to charge for those changes and it used to be more, but most hybrids are quite costly, but the Honda's I have used were more economical than an equivalent powered petrol car of similar size and they were a lower rfl band due to lower emissions, of course rfl is no longer emission based for private buyers.

Yes. You might be getting an extra 20hp but then the performance will barely change due to the weight of the battery (and I don't think the 2.0 come with a Turbo).  Possibily a 10% fuel saving for a mild hybrid + RFL reduction of £80'ish pa but as I said a private buyer will have to wait a long time to get over £3,000 back!

When I see price reduced I assume just that but the price isn't reduced on existing models it's just they've brought out a new base model with a lower price for less kit/spec, the existing models prices haven't changed.
