Ford Europe announces 1.0 turbo Focus

By

Ford Europe has launched a reportedly more efficient version of the Focus hatchback, sporting a 1.0-liter EcoBoost turbo gasoline engine. The car will is capable of 23.9 km/liter on test runs, and will emit 99 g/km of CO2 , the first gasoline-powered family car in Europe to have such low emissions. This qualifies it for exemptions from excise taxes and congestion charges in London.

The 1.0-liter engine was awarded International Engine of the Year in 2013 and 2012. It uses a low inertia turbocharger, split cooling system and direct fuel injection to deliver 99hp from three cylinders. It also has auto start-stop, regenerative charging, and active grille shutter.

To help boost fuel economy further, the Focus will have ultra-low rolling resistance tires, unique aerodynamics under the car, and revised gearing.
