The Ford Fiesta EcoBoost Hybrid and Ford Focus EcoBoost Hybrid models have been announced for the European market.
UPDATE, 27/03/19: Ford Australia says it has "no announcements on Fiesta Hybrid or Focus Hybrid at this stage".
Both models feature a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine with a belt-driven integrated starter/generator in place of the regular alternator.
The integrated starter/generator recovers energy typically lost during braking and coasting, and stores it in a new air-cooled 48V lithium-ion battery pack.
Additionally the starter/generator works as a motor to provide a torque boost. This, Ford says, has allowed it to fit a larger turbocharger to the 1.0-litre engine to increase power output.
The company has yet to announce overall power and torque figures, nor do we have any indication about pricing or performance numbers.
Further details about the new mild-hybrid models are likely to surface at an event Ford has planned for the beginning of April.
Note: Non-hybrid models shown.
