It’s not often we talk about vans on TheGreenCarWebsite.co.uk: however, when it comes to green vans there has arguably never been a more attractive option than the new Ford Fiesta Van (pictured).
The vehicle features diesel engines, all of which have emissions below 100g/km of CO2 with fuel economy figures topping 76mpg. The standout model from an environmental standpoint has to be the Ford Fiesta ECOnetic Van which achieves 85mpg and emissions at 87g/km.
So how has this been achieved?
There are several powertrains to choose from including: a new 75PS 1.5litre Duratorq TDCi model; as well as a 95PS 1.6litre Duratorq TDCi model. There are 1.25litre Duratec petrol engines available too. The Fiesta Van ECOnetic model benefits from a host of environmentally focused features including: an aerodynamic rear under tray and wheel trims; low rolling resistance tyres; and an auto start-stop.
Of course it’s a van, so it’s not all about economy: it actually has a 1.0 cubic metre load space; a load length of 1.3metres; and payload ranging from 485kg-508kg.
Safety features and driver assistance is also a big feature of the vehicle: technologies include Ford MyKey, which encourages businesses to employ safer driving and provides fleets with ownership information; and Ford SYNC with emergency assistance that can connect the vehicle occupants to the emergency services.
The vehicle is already available to order with deliveries starting in January.
