The Ford Mondeo Vignale is really surprising with the economic driving. This hybrid car is energy efficient with the 89 g/km CO2-emissions and making the best of the electric and petrol combination. According to the company calculations, the combined consumption is 3,9 l/ 100 km.
And for this reason, I was test driving this Ford model again in the winter season. While this car is not plug in hybrid, I wanted to test again the first feelings: is this energy consumption as low as it seemed to be. And yes, it was amazing. Must say, this is perhaps the most energy efficient hybrid I have test drived so far.
It is also designed to last longer – the Ford Vignale Collection is perfect for the weekend travelling. Ford has designed for example Italian-style fashion collection with mobile phone holder and weekendbag. They represent the finest leather quality, as the car´s interior design.
With this car, the car is charging itself during the driving, so there is actually no need for plug-ins at all and the size of the petrol tank is 53 litres.
The hybrid Mondeo has several technologies that increase the safe driving but also they help with communications using Apple CarPlay or Android and having smart voice service to control the navigation.
In recent years Ford Motor (F:US) has transformed its models to meet better the new low carbon regulation and last weekend the company announced that they will invest 11 billion dollars by 2022 to 40 hybrid or fully electric vechiles. This is in line with other big car manufacturers as they are preparing for the new time after fossil fuel engines in 2030 or 2040.
