This means that the MKZ hybrid is 5 mpg more efficient than the Lexus ES300h, which only manages 40 mpg, despite the Japanese manufacturer having considerably more experience in the field than either Ford or Lincoln - it even beats the smaller Lexus CT 200h by 2 mpg city and 5 mpg highway.

However, despite using the same hybrid system as the Ford Fusion Hybrid, the Blue Oval’s offering boasts even better figures, managing a combined figure of 47 mpg combined. The MKZ will be a very promising prospect for those in the market for such a car, when it goes on sale later this year.

Jim Farley, Group VP, Global Marketing, Sales and Service said: "The all-new MKZ Hybrid proves that thoughtful customers who prioritize fuel economy and reducing emissions do not need to compromise on luxury, driving quality or advanced technology [. . .] MKZ is our strongest proof yet on what the reinvented Lincoln stands for – beautiful vehicles with compelling and warm experiences that create a clear alternative in today's increasingly competitive luxury marketplace."
