Ford is doing two things: it celebrates its 21st birthday and distributes the fifth generation all-new Ford Mondeo in Europe, which becomes the first hybrid electric car built and sold by Ford there. The Mondeo Hybrid combines advanced Ford technology, better efficiency, reduced emissions, genuine style, elegant design and excellent driving performance which guarantees remarkable experience on the road.

The hybrid arrives with a large range of powertrains. The variety of engines includes: the 1.5-litre EcoBoost and 2.0-litre EcoBoost along with the award-winning l 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine.

Another option is the high-powered 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine which generates 210 PS and 450 Nm of peak torque. An ECOnetic Technology model will be available too and will be powered by a 1.6-litre diesel engine with class-leading diesel CO2 emissions of 94 g/km and 2.0-litre TDCi diesel models with 150 PS or 180 PS.

Finally, the new Mondeo Hybrid combines a specially-developed 2.0-litre petrol engine with an electric motor and 1.4 kWh lithium-ion battery in order to provide better fuel economy and CO2 emissions of 99 g/km.

Furthermore, the car comes with significantly more safety and luxury features. In Europe, the car will be offered in five-door, wagon and four-door versions with the option of all-wheel-drive. The car premiers with integral link rear suspension as well as Ford's innovative inflatable rear seatbelts, massage function-equipped multi-contour seats with Active Motion and Ford's first adaptive LED headlights in Europe which help raise the overall quality statistics.

The all-new Ford Mondeo Hybrid is available in the UK from December a four-door saloon from only £24,995 - the same as its 2.0-litre diesel Mondeo Titanium Powershift five-door equivalent.
