Ford debuted the all-new global Mondeo
Built on Ford’s global CD-segment platform, the refined new version of the Ford flagship will be available as a five-door and wagon – uniquely developed for Europe – as well as a four-door that will also be offered as segment-first petrol Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV).
It will be the first car in its segment equipped with a 1.0-litre powertrain, the 2012 “International Engine of the Year” 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, to deliver expected best-in-class fuel economy.
Ford’s new global design language informs the all-new Mondeo’s refined, elegant, sporty and highly expressive exterior. The low roofline enhances the sports coupe profile while retaining a spacious and practical interior, and incorporates a retractable panoramic glass roof for the wagon bodystyle.
The lean side-profile is sculpted to convey “visual lightness”, while the sophisticated and technical front end design features Ford’s new, more prominent trapezoidal grille, a power-dome bonnet and segment-first adaptive, full LED headlamps.
The new Mondeo is the first Ford to feature headlamps with LED high-beam, low-beam and signal lighting. Quicker to illuminate, more durable and more energy-efficient than traditional filament bulb headlamps, the all-new Mondeo’s LED headlamps turn with the steering and adapt beam projection to vehicle speed – providing a greater depth of illumination at high speeds and a wider field of vision at slower speeds.
The interior delivers unprecedented levels of ergonomics and comfort, with superior craftsmanship throughout the driver-focused cockpit. Soft-touch materials, premium finishes and equipment contribute to the most premium Mondeo experience ever.
The all-new four-door Mondeo HEV is Ford’s first hybrid passenger car for Europe, and combines a specially-developed Atkinson Cycle 2.0-litre petrol engine with a 35kW lithium-ion battery allied to a CVT automatic transmission to provide high fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. Total output 188PS, with 47PS from the electric motor alone which is capale of propelling the car to 100kmk on irts own.
All new Mondeo also delivers the European debut of Ford’s rear inflatable seatbelts. These are designed to reduce head, neck and chest injuries for rear-seat passengers. In the event of an accident the belt rapidly expands to disperse crash forces across a body area five times greater than that achieved by a conventional seatbelt.

Mondeo Estate Hybrid announced
Ford enhanced the fuel-efficient Mondeo hybrid petrol-electric range with the introduction of the practical and spacious Mondeo hybrid estate arriving in 2019.
The Ford Mondeo Hybrid powertrain uses an electric motor to support the specially-developed 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine in driving the wheels, and a generator to enable regenerative charging of the 1.4 kWh lithium-ion, air-cooled, recyclable battery located behind the rear seats. Regenerative braking technology captures up to 90 per cent of the energy normally lost during braking to replenish the battery.
The Mondeo Hybrid is capable of driving in pure electric mode, delivering ultimate refinement and efficiency particularly in city and stop-start driving scenarios. The hybrid powertrain delivers 187PS, supported by a Ford-developed continuously variable automatic transmission for further enhanced fuel efficiency.
The Ford Mondeo Vignale 2.0 Ti VCT 187PS Hybrid estate is priced at £32,600.
