2019 Ford Mondeo Wagon Hybrid

The enhanced Ford Mondeo – introducing elegant new exterior and interior design details and a new Hybrid Wagon variant for the first time – was today revealed at the 2019 Brussels Motor Show, Belgium. The new Ford Mondeo Hybrid is a unique offering in its segment, and now offers an even more refined petrol-electric driving experience. Adaptive Cruise Control enhanced with Stop & Go joins Mondeo’s sophisticated suite of driver assistance technologies alongside Intelligent Speed Limiter, for easier driving in motorway and stop-start traffic. Built at Ford’s state-of-the-art assembly plant in Valencia, Spain, Ford has sold more than 250,000 Mondeos in Europe since the fourth generation model began reaching customers in 2015.

For customers who require greater load-carrying capability, the new Ford Mondeo Wagon Hybrid delivers the driving range and freedom offered by a traditional combustion engine with the efficiency and refinement of an electric powertrain. In both wagon and coupe-inspired four-door body styles, the self-charging Ford Mondeo Hybrid is capable of pure electric driving and offers silent key start capability for refinement particularly in city and stop-start driving scenarios. The powertrain eliminates both range anxiety and the need for customers to use an external power source to charge the battery. The latest generation of Mondeo Hybrid powertrain control software delivers a smooth, linear response to acceleration demand for a refined driving experience. The enhanced powertrain software is also more effective at using the engine’s torque to deliver greater fuel efficiency and performance – seamlessly adjusting transmission ratios to utilise the highest engine torque at lowest engine speed.

The hybrid powertrain delivers 187 PS, and combines a specially-developed 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine; electric motor; generator; 1.4 kWh lithium-ion battery; and a Ford-developed power-split automatic transmission that emulates the performance of a continuously-variable transmission. Regenerative braking technology captures up to 90 per cent of the energy normally lost during braking to replenish the battery, contributing to anticipated CO2 emissions from 96 g/km and fuel efficiency from 4.2 l/100 km for the four-door, and anticipated CO2 emissions from 101 g/km and fuel efficiency from 4.4 l/100 km for the wagon. The new wagon body style provides 403 litres load capacity beneath the cargo cover for Ford Mondeo Hybrid customers with the rear seats in place, and up to 1,508 litres with the rear seats folded, while a flat floor makes loading and unloading of large or bulky items easier. Additional storage is concealed beneath the load floor. The top-of-the-range Mondeo Hybrid Vignale is also now offered in both wagon and four-door body styles.

Ford’s advanced 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine is introduced to Mondeo for the first time, delivering the driving performance of a larger capacity engine alongside the fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions synonymous with a smaller engine capacity. An integrated intake system with mirror-image porting for optimised engine breathing; low-inertia turbocharger that enhances low-end torque; and high-pressure fuel injection system that is more responsive, quieter and offers more precise fuel delivery than the outgoing 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engines, all help meet the latest stringent Euro 6d Temp emissions standards. Standard SCR emissions after-treatment contributes to improved NOX reduction. Ford’s new eight-speed automatic transmission – offered with 150 PS and 190 PS 2.0-litre EcoBlue engines – has been engineered to further optimise fuel efficiency and deliver responsive performance and smooth, swift gearshifts. Ford’s 165 PS 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine remains available, delivering from 150 g/km CO2 emissions and from 6.5 l/100 km fuel efficiency supported by integrated exhaust manifold and water-cooled intake charge cooler technologies.

Elegant updates to Mondeo’s exterior and interior design enhance the premium and executive appeal of four-door, five-door and wagon models, while amplifying the visual differentiation between Mondeo variants including Titanium, ST-Line and Vignale. Rear design updates include new C-shaped tail lights intersected by a stylish, full-width applique in satin silver or chrome finish, and Mondeo continues to feature a lean side-profile sculpted to convey “visual lightness”, power-dome bonnet and, a slim-line headlight design. Mondeo customers are now offered more options to personalise their vehicle. New 17- and 18-inch alloy wheel designs are available, as is a premium Liquid Aluminium finish option for the 19-inch alloy wheel design. Distinctive new exterior colour options include Vignale-exclusive Blue Panther, ST-Line-exclusive Stealth grey, and new Urban Teal for the full Mondeo range. Mondeo’s upgraded interior features new seat fabrics, new door handle appliques, and new decorative spears unique to Titanium, ST Line and Vignale models. The addition of the rotary gear shift dial for models equipped with Ford’s eight-speed automatic transmission frees-up additional storage space in the centre console, where a USB port is now conveniently located for charging mobile devices or accessing portable media. Interior craftsmanship is also enhanced with improved fit and finish between centre console and instrument panel components, delivering and even more premium feel to the sporty, cockpit-like cabin.

Mondeo now also offers Adaptive Cruise Control technology – which enables the vehicle to automatically maintain a comfortable driving distance from vehicles ahead – enhanced with additional Stop & Go functionality. Enabled by the introduction of Ford’s eight-speed automatic transmission, the Stop & Go feature can bring the vehicle to a complete halt in stop-start traffic, and automatically pull away if the stopping duration is less than 3 seconds. For stopping durations greater than 3 seconds, the driver can push the resume button on the steering wheel or gently apply the accelerator to pull away, greatly enhancing comfort when driving in stop-start traffic. Introduced to Mondeo for the first time, Intelligent Speed Limiter combines Ford’s Speed Limiter and Traffic Sign Recognition technologies, and can help ensure the vehicle’s maximum speed is automatically adjusted to remain within changing speed limits. The system uses a windscreen-mounted camera to monitor road signs and when the speed limit is lower than that maximum set speed, slows the vehicle as required. As the speed limit rises, the system allows the driver to accelerate up to the set speed, providing it does not exceed the new speed limit.
