The 15-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine is no longer in Ford Mondeo’s European range. The carmaker confirmed the change of offer.
“The move to full hybrid production in our Mondeo range of petrol models is another major step forward on Ford’s path to electrification,” said Roelant de Waard, Ford’s vice president of Europe.
He also explains that “for customers who drive less than 20,000 kilometers a year, our hybrid is a smart choice that offers an even better offer than diesel and electricity, without the need for recharging.”
Ford says the hybrid version increased its share of total model sales in the first seven months of this year by 25 percent compared to 2019, more than a third of all mondeo sales.
The hybrid system uses a combination of a two-liter four-cylinder petrol engine operating in the Atkinson combustion cycle and an electric motor. It is a full-hybrid with a 1.4kWh lithium-ion battery, without the possibility of external recharging but capable of short-term driving on electricity. The combined power is 138 kW, 187 hp.
The 2.0 EcoBlue diesel also remains on offer in three levels of tuning. It has 88 kilowatts (120 hp), 110 kW (150 hp) and 140 kW (190 hp).
