There is big demand in the UK for ‘low emission vehicles’ as at the moment these types of vehicles enjoy generous tax benefits by being less polluting.

Ford has put it’s hand up with the new Fiesta ECOnetic, which claims ultra low emissions of carbon-dioxide.

View the press release below.

The Fiesta ECOnetic becomes the most fuel efficient new five-seater family car in the UK.  With CO2 emissions at under 100g/km, Ford Fiesta ECOnetic is zero rated both for road tax (Vehicle Excise Duty) and for the ‘showroom tax’ element of VED introduced for the first year of ownership in this year’s Budget.

Aerodynamic body styling, lowered suspension, low resistance tyres and low friction oil all help the Ford Fiesta ECOnetic achieve ultra low CO2 emissions.  Additionally a green shift indicator in the instrument cluster highlights the optimal point to change gear to maximise fuel economy.

Roelant de Waard, Ford of Britain chairman and managing director, said:  “Many drivers are prepared to be green – but still want comfort, performance and an affordable price.  ECOnetic answers that demand.

“Ford’s ECOnetic range, complete with new Fiesta, delivers style with a green conscience.”

Fiesta ECOnetic — what’s different?

* Aerodynamic  rear air deflectors
* Lowered suspension
* Optimised rolling resistance tyres (175/65R14) and low friction oil
* Green shift indicator light
* Modified engine calibration
* Transmission final drive ratio changed from 3.37 to 3.05
