Ford continues to deploy its green strategy under the badge Econetic.
By the middle of next year, half of the production will be badged Econetic and Ford wants to increase this figure to two thirds by 2013.
The Focus was introduced earlier this year with the 105hp 1.6-liter Duratorq TDCi. In this new edition that will be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Focus becomes even greener and a version fitted with the 1.0l three-cylinder EcoBoost will also be unveiled.
The ECOnetic range will focus on the 1-liter and 1.6-liter EcoBoost engines and the 1.6l TDCi.
Econetic models use an Auto-Start-Stop and specific technology called NOx trap, which, combined with a particulate filter reduces emissions. These technologies will be available across the range by the end of 2012.
But the models of this article receive additional features: active grille shutter, which automatically closes the grille at a certain speed in order to increase efficiency, an ECO mode, and brake energy regeneration.
Econetic versions in figures:
95hp 1.6l TDCi Duratorq engine
5 speed manual gearbox
105hp 1.6l TDCi Duratorq engine
Durashift six-speed manual gearbox
