Why choose between power and efficiency? With the Ford Fiesta you can have both. The award-winning 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine delivers a seamless blend of power and fuel economy. While the new EcoBoost Hybrid features an electric motor to boost power whilst minimising emissions. And with sophisticated driving dynamics, this is the car that delivers a rewarding, no compromise driving experience.
The Fiesta EcoBoost Hybrid engine uses a small electric motor with a 48-volt battery to improve efficiency. Instead of driving solely on electric power, the electric motor provides torque assistance to the petrol engine when needed. It also uses regenerative braking technology, which charges the mild hybrid's battery by capturing energy that’s usually lost when you slow down. This helps increase your fuel economy and reduce emissions.
It has also received several great technology upgrades, including the introduction of Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Speed Sign Recognition for improved safety, in addition to a FordPass Connect modem which gives occupants a whole new connectivity experience and enables advanced features via the FordPass smartphone app.
Available in 125 PS and 155 PS power outputs, Fiesta EcoBoost Hybrid models feature a belt-driven integrated starter/generator (BISG) in place of the standard alternator, enabling recovery and storage of energy usually lost during braking and coasting to charge a 48-volt lithium-ion air-cooled battery pack.
The BISG also acts as a motor, integrating with the engine and using the stored energy to provide torque assistance during normal driving and acceleration, as well as running the vehicle’s electrical system.
