Ford Fiesta leads eco charge to drive down emissions

Vehicles from the Ford fleet, including the Ford Fiesta, are at the forefront of the battle to reduce carbon dioxide levels in cars, it has been stated.

Environmental website Clean Green Cars has revealed that the latest low-carbon cars from Ford have helped the manufacturer to lead the way when it comes to reducing the emissions of its fleet.

Among the vehicles to help in this mission was the Ford Fiesta ECOnetic, which generates CO2 emissions of 98g/km and allows a driver to complete 76.3 miles to the gallon.

Buyers of this car also get the added luxury of not having to pay any road tax.

Jay Nagley, Clean Green Cars publisher, said: "New car carbon dioxide emissions are falling at an unprecedented rate and Ford is more than playing its part.

Until last year, car CO2 output had been falling at less than two per cent a year. Now real gains are being made with advanced technology, as demonstrated by Ford’s ECOnetic range."

What Car? magazine voted the Ford Fiesta as the Car of the Year for 2009, alongside it being crowned the Best Supermini.
