Ford has used the 2012 Oxford to London Eco Rally to demonstrate how eco-friendly its latest Focus models are. Three different Focus versions took part in the 65-mile event, which happened on 18 August.

The Ford Focus models were powered by the company’s most fuel-efficient engines – the 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol, the 1.6-litre Duratorq diesel and the zero-emissions electric motor.

Andreas Schamel, managing director of Ford’s European Research Center and Ford’s chief research engineer, said: "Ford is developing a portfolio of high-technology, low-CO2 engines that offer customers affordable choice and the excellent fuel efficiency they want and value. Ford is committed to reducing CO2 output across its entire range.

“The Ford Focus cars in the EcoRally demonstrate how choice can be provided within a single model range. The Focus Electric shows our commitment to providing a full suite of minimum-CO2 technologies, which will be supplemented by hybrid and plug-in hybrid cars that Ford is launching in Europe.”
