Ford introduced the new Fiesta Van facelift in the UK. The car-derived van for large and small businesses, will deliver class-leading fuel efficiency and segment-first technologies when it launches in 2013.
With a practical 1.0 cubic metre load space, the Ford Fiesta Van offers a load compartment featuring a secure steel bulkhead and four cargo tie-down hooks, both developed in accordance with the international DIN standard for load restraints, plus a tough rubber floor mat and durable sidewall trim. The van’s load length of 1.3 metres and gross payload ranging from 485-508kg means space for bulkier items.
All diesel engines in the new Fiesta Van achieve sub-100g/km CO2 emissions and 76.4mpg or better. The Fiesta ECOnetic Van features enhanced fuel-saving technologies to deliver best-in-class 87g/km and 85.6mpg, a value that no other manufacturer in the class matches.
The Fiesta Van powertrain choice includes the new 75PS 1.5-litre Duratorq TDCi and 95PS 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi engines – both built in Dagenham – and the 82PS 1.25-litre Duratec petrol units, assembled at Bridgend.
The efficient Fiesta Van ECOnetic version offers the specially developed 95PS 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi powertrain with standard Auto-Start-Stop, lowered suspension, aerodynamic rear under-tray and wheel trims, and low rolling resistance tyres.
The new Fiesta Van is available to order now, with customer deliveries from January 2013.
