Ford light commercial vehicles meet European stage V emissions

Ford's FiestaVan 2011 models will come with engines that meet and exceed the European Stage V emissions requirements. This means Ford light commercial vehicle customers can benefit from improved fuel economy and reduced emissions.

Mark Simpson, marketing director, Ford of Britain, said: "Despite a tough business climate, Ford FiestaVan sales are up 40 per cent this year. This work towards maintaining class-leading low cost of ownership is how we try to make the Ford range the one that British businesses choose."

All 2011 FiestaVan engines now reach Euro Stage V emissions. The 1.4-litre has an additional 2PS of power at 70PS and the 1.6-litre gets an additional 5PS at 95PS. The 2011 model also comes with a Diesel Particulate Filter and trip computer.

Ford Transit Connect customers can now choose the new 1.8-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi engine 90PS or 110PS option that exceeds the new Euro Stage V emission requirements. Features include a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) with vaporiser technology that collects over 95 per cent of all engine soot emissions.
