As if Ford\'s 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine isn\'t environment-friendly enough with its high power output and low fuel consumption, the American carmaker has improved it even further by producing an ultra-efficient version for the Focus that has been specially calibrated to produce 99hp and yet only puts out 99g/km of carbon dioxide.

\"Just a couple of years ago, few would have thought that a medium-size petrol car could break the 100g/km carbon dioxide barrier,\" said Ford\'s European product development vice president, Barb Samardzich. \"Ford\'s 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine has a habit of taking expectations of what a petrol engine can deliver and turning them upside down.\"

According to Ford, this brings to three the number of Focus models in Europe that are offered with the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine, alongside the standard 99hp version with its carbon dioxide emissions of 109g/km, and the 123hp model with its emissions at 114g/km.

The carmaker added that this new Focus variant will feature its ECOnetic Technology, which includes ultra-low rolling resistance tires, unique under-car aerodynamics, and revised gearing \"to help deliver the company\'s most fuel-efficient petrol-powered family car.\" This is on top of other environment-friendly features that the Focus already boasts, like an auto start/stop system, smart regenerative charging and active grille shutter.
