2010 Paris Auto Show: Ford Mondeo ECOnetic [Live Photos]
The new Mondeo ECOnetic is powered by a 109 hp 1.6-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi engine equipped with a standard diesel particulate filter and coupled to a Ford Durashift 6-speed manual transmission.
The car is also fitted with a special aerodynamic kit including lowered suspension and low rolling resistant tires. Standard Ford Auto-Start-Stop system which can reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions is also included, accompanied by a high performance Improved Flooded (IF) Battery with a Voltage Quality Module (VQM).
The second generation Mondeo ECOnetic is targeted to deliver a combined fuel consumption lower than 4.3 l/100km (more than 65.6 mpg) and to emit around 115 g/km of CO2.
“The introduction of these new models follows Ford's substantive contributions to lower CO2 mobility already delivered to European customers in 2010. So far this year, the company has introduced its new range of Ford EcoBoost turbo-charged direct injection petrol engines as well as significantly improved and new versions of its powerful yet fuel-efficient Duratorq TDCi diesel engines across its line up,” a company statement reads.
According to Ford, the new Ford Mondeo ECOnetic will be available across all Mondeo bodystyles and series except for the Titanium S.
