The New Enhanced & Electric Ford Fiesta 

Ford has announced that the incredibly popular Ford Fiesta is now available as a mild hybrid. The new Fiesta is electrified and enhanced, better on fuel, more enjoyable to drive, and packed full of technology.

 
The Ford Fiesta is renowned for providing both power and efficiency; there's a reason why you see so many on the roads! The latest edition to the diverse Fiesta range offers everything the petrol counterpart does and more, and, with the additional hybrid features boosting your power and minimising emissions, this is the best excuse for joining the electric revolution. 
 
After the success of the EcoBoost hybrid technology in the new Ford Puma, Ford decided to integrate it into Europe’s best selling compact hatchback. The mild-hybrid Fiesta uses the EcoBoost engine and is assisted by a 48 voltage electric motor when needed. When you're driving at slow speeds or stationary, the engine can switch itself off to save energy and seamlessly restart when it's required. 
 
Thanks to the torque substitution, which reduces the amount of work required from the engine, it contributes to lowering co2 emissions and increasing fuel efficiency, in the 125 ps EcoBoost hybrid it's improved by almost 5% compared to the petrol equivalent. Even the non-hybrid powertrains are now benefitting off this multi-award-winning 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine for optimised fuel efficiency and co2 emissions.  
 
A great feature of mild hybrid vehicles is that there is no requirement to plug the battery into a power source, as it automatically recharges by regenerative braking during coasting and braking. These features are great for capturing energy which is usually lost, therefore helping increase fuel economy and reducing emissions.
 
Alongside the new hybrid technology, Ford has also introduced new driver assistance technology. This includes adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go and Speed Sign Recognition. These incredibly smart features reduce stress during long trips and busy built-up areas.  
 
To make the ownership experience easier the fiesta range is better connected than ever with the FordPass Connect. This allows customers to access features like remote locking and unlocking all via the FordPass mobile app. 
 
The new Ford Fiesta mHEV is a great stepping stone into the electric vehicle range. Sticking to the trusted 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine, and combining its electric assistance, will provide you with nothing but benefits. 
 
The Ford Fiesta Mild hybrid is available to order now from £19,860.
