When looking to purchase or lease a new car there are number of green requirements which vehicles must posses in order for potential buyers to even consider a test drive.
This could be where Ford comes into itís own with the new 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine.
Whilst the radical new engine is the size of an A4 piece of paper, donít be fooled as this engine seems to have a bite much bigger than its bark.
Ford claims that the new engine will offer the same performance as the previous 1.6 litre engine, but can this really shift a Focus around the road at the same velocity? The engine has 3 cylinders which offer up to 56.5 mpg and emitting 114g/km of CO2.
The release of this new engine is to show drivers that it is possible to provide a 1.0 litre engine which offers punch without consuming large amounts of petrol or emitting excessive amounts of CO2. Reduced CO2 emissions are highly sought after as customers want to be seen as being green. This should make it even easier to change to this innovative vehicle as it offers performance and an eco- friendly approach which works!
Many other manufacturers have produced cars with l.0 litre engines such as Toyota and also Citroen, although none have been able supply the same amount of power which the new 1.0 litre EcoBoost Focus has. You should strongly consider testing it for yourself as you may be pleasantly surprised with what it can offer.
