New MPV 'is greenest ever'

Tue, 09 Dec 2008
Car buyers who like a large vehicle but are concerned about the environmental impact of such motors may want to pay a visit to their local Ford dealership.

The manufacturer has announced engineering developments to its new C-Max MPV have resulted in a much greener model.

According to the carmaker, the 1.6 TDCi version now offers CO2 emissions of 119 g/km.

It pointed out this means owners will pay £35 per year for vehicle excise duty (VED), rather than £120.

Ford added this would drop to £30 in April, when new VED bands are due to be introduced.

In terms of fuel economy, the manufacturer stated the vehicle was capable of achieving 62.8 mpg.

Meanwhile, for those buying a car who want something smaller, Ford pointed out it offers more than 50 models with CO2 emissions of less than 120 g/km.

In other motoring news from the manufacturer, it recently reported it had increased its market share of new car sales by more than five per cent last month.
