New Ford Mondeo Hybrid

Hybrid Technology

The New Mondeo Hybrid Estate has two sources of power: a conventional fuel engine and a battery-driven, electric motor. The system automatically switches between the powertrains, or uses a combination or both, to deliver a perfect blend of power and efficiency. And to make the whole system even more efficient, regenerative braking captures up to 90% of the energy normally lost through friction brakes, then recycles it to recharge the high-voltage battery.

Enjoy the benefits of Hybrid Electric technology

As befits a car that pioneers technology, the Mondeo is available as a Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). By combining the benefits of both electric and petrol power, the Mondeo Hybrid enables you to enjoy outstanding efficiency and refinement along with rewarding performance and driving range. Regenerative braking, an innovative SmartGauge with ‘Brake Coach’, plus other sophisticated systems, help further maximise this car’s power and efficiency.

Drive smarter

The Ford SmartGauge with EcoGuide uses intelligent design and an intuitive interface to help you drive more efficiently. A high-resolution LCD screen on the dashboard displays real time driving information, including fuel and battery power levels. And an on-screen animation shows you when you’re driving most efficiently to help you maximise your savings.

Charge on the move

Smart engineering in the new Mondeo Hybrid means there’s no need to charge your car at the mains. Regenerative braking recaptures energy usually wasted when you apply the brakes, then uses it to charge the battery. Secondly, the petrol engine powers a generator that sends energy back to battery. This enables your Mondeo to switch to electric power when you need to maximise efficiency.

Designed to reduce emissions to save fuel and money

Intelligent design, smart technology and precision engineering maximise the benefits of a Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). Hybrid technology knows when it’s best to switch from petrol to electric power. The result is smooth, responsive performance, an exhilarating driving experience and combined fuel consumption of only 54.3mpg.

Stand out

The New Ford Mondeo Hybrid was designed to stand out wherever you go. Clean, sculpted lines make a powerful visual statement. And the chrome grille and striking 18” alloy wheels complement the design to create a contemporary look that matches its advanced, Hybrid engine.

  •  RNLI transport needs on land to be fulfilled by over 450 new Fords over three years
  • Rugged and durable Ford Ranger is RNLI’s pick-up of choice for lifeguard beach patrols
  • Transit vans including Custom hybrid, plus EcoSport and Kuga cars, also join RNLI’s fleet
  • Ford to support RNLI water safety messaging

Ford is pushing the boat out for the RNLI by supplying the charity that saves lives at sea with a replacement fleet of new vehicles.
Ford will ship 210 new vehicles to the RNLI this year, followed by a further 120 in 2020 and again in 2021 – including 100 Ford Rangers total as beach patrol vehicles for its lifeguard service.
Andy Barratt, Ford of Britain chairman and managing director, said: “Ford as UK vehicle market leader partnering one of this country’s national treasures is a real coup for us. The RNLI does an outstanding job keeping us safe around the coast, which we’re excited to be supporting.”

Ford takes its social responsibility as an industry leader, employer and charity supporter seriously. Ford will be collaborating with the RNLI on water safety messages to raise public awareness of risks around the water to help people enjoy coastal and inland waterways more safely.

The 2019 fleet of RNLI Fords will include 10 Fiesta, 10 EcoSport, 80 Focus, 10 Kuga, 80 Transit, Transit Connect and Transit Customs plus the Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), as well as 20 four-wheel-drive Rangers to be deployed on beach patrols.
Last year vehicles from eight manufacturers were tested by the RNLI in all conditions to ensure the life-saving charity had transport it can depend on, suitable for both the beach and inland.
“The Ford Ranger pick-up is a vehicle we are immensely proud of and we are thrilled that the RNLI also believes it is best suited to its tough demands,” said Andy Barratt.

Nick Saunders, RNLI senior procurement manager, said: “We’re delighted that Ford is able to supply vehicles so well-suited to carrying out our life-saving work. The RNLI is excited to be working with such an iconic brand in a relationship that goes beyond supplier status.”
A Ford Transit Custom Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) will be used in Poole and the Dorset area to test the suitability of the electric/petrol hybrid for the RNLI’s needs, helping to reduce the.

RNLI’s carbon footprint and contribute to cleaner air quality. The RNLI becomes Ford’s 10th fleet partner testing Transit Custom PHEV prototypes in real-world, everyday applications ahead of the vehicle going on sale later this year.

About the RNLI

The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,400 lives.
