Ford Unveils Transit Custom ECOnetic
It features the same 2.2-liter diesel engine, with 100 hp, yet it gains different gearing, for improved efficiency, a start/stop system, as well as low rolling resistance tires. This means that the Transit ECOnetic is easily the most fuel-efficienct vehicle in its class, returning an excellent 6 l/100km, or 47.1 UK mpg. Another innovative feature is an ‘Acceleration Control system’, which the manufacturer claims will reduce consumption by between 4% to 15%.
“The Transit Custom already delivers great fuel economy and the new ECOnetic model pushes the bar higher, into the realm of the family cars [. . .] The Transit Custom ECOnetic is packed with advanced fuel-saving technologies that help businesses keep running costs to a minimum and reduce their carbon footprint,” said Barb Samardzich, VP of Product Development at Ford Europe.
