Ford is introducing a new version of its Fiesta Van in Europe. All diesel engines in the new Fiesta Van achieve sub-100 g/km CO2 emissions and 3.7 l/100 km (63.6 mpg US) or better (measured according to the technical requirements and specifications of the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 as last amended).
The 1.6L diesel Fiesta ECOnetic Van variant, featuring enhanced fuel-saving technologies, delivers fuel consumption of 3.3 l/100 km (71 mpg US), equivalent to 87 gCO2/km.
Fiesta Van powertrain choice now includes the new 75 PS (74 hp, 55 kW) 1.5-liter Duratorq TDCi diesel, alongside the 95 PS (94 hp,70 kW) 1.6-liter Duratorq TDCi diesel and 82 PS (80 hp, 60 kW) 1.25-liter Duratec gasoline units. The ultra-efficient ECOnetic Van variant offers the specially developed 95 PS 1.6-liter Duratorq TDCi diesel ECOnetic powertrain with standard Auto-Start-Stop, along with lowered suspension, aerodynamic rear under-tray and wheel trims, and low rolling resistance tires.
The Fiesta Van offers a 1.0 cubic meter load space. The load compartment features a secure steel bulkhead and four cargo tie-down hooks, both developed in accordance with the international DIN standard for load restraints, plus a tough rubber floor mat and durable sidewall trim. Load length is 1.3 meters and gross payload ranges from 485-508 kg (1,069 to 1,120 lbs).
The new Fiesta Van offers a number of Ford driver assistance and safety features including segment-first technologies. Ford MyKey allows businesses to encourage safer driving and limit the driver’s exposure to risk at the wheel as well as providing fleets with ownership information. Following on from the new Transit Custom, Fiesta Van also offers the in-car connectivity system Ford SYNC.
Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance directly connects the vehicle occupants to local emergency services operators after an accident, in the correct language for the region. Also introduced to new Fiesta is class-first technology Active City Stop, a system designed to help drivers avoid low speed collisions, alongside Hill Launch Assist, Easy Fuel and Rear View Camera.
