Sub-100g/km diesel line-up for Fiesta van

A new 1.5-litre diesel makes its debut in the facelifted Ford Fiesta van, with all diesel models promising 76.4mpg or better on the combined cycle.

The new model is now available to order with customer deliveries beginning this month.

The new engine makes its debut in Ford's commercial vehicle range, while more new technology is carried over from the recently revised Ford Fiesta car.

The Fiesta Econetic Van features enhanced fuel-saving technologies to deliver best-in-class 87g/km and 85.6mpg.

"The new Fiesta Van is a stylish mobile workshop for light duty tools and equipment that makes great business sense," said Mark Easton, Ford Britain light commercial vehicle product manager.

"Both local tradesmen and urban delivery fleets will appreciate its sharp, professional looks, while relying on its versatility, dependability and exceptionally low running costs."

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 Ford Transit Custom, the 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 relevant country.

Also introduced to new Fiesta is class-first technology Active City Stop, a system designed to help drivers avoid low speed collisions. It is offered alongside other convenience features such as Hill Start Assist, Easy Fuel and Rear View Camera.
