The Focus is built to deliver a rewarding blend of precise handling and remarkable fuel economy. And now, to help reduce emissions whilst improving power and efficiency even further, it’s available with an advanced EcoBoost Hybrid powertrain. The Focus Mild Hybrid is part of Ford’s promise to deliver 14 electrified vehicles by the end of 2020.
The Focus Mild 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 extra torque assistance to the petrol engine when needed. The Focus Mild Hybrid also uses regenerative braking technology, which charges the battery by capturing energy that’s usually lost when you slow down. This helps increase your fuel economy and reduce emissions.
