FORD IS EXPANDING its Mondeo Hybrid range in 2019 with the addition of an estate model.

At present, the Mondeo Hybrid is only available as a saloon, which has a smaller boot than the non-hybrid model due to the batteries. So, the estate model should offer a solution to those looking for more space. You can also buy an upscale Mondeo Vignale variant.

The Hybrid estate model will use an Atkinson-cycle 2.0-litre petrol engine, paired with an electric motor and a 1.4kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The combination of engine and motor produces 187hp and returns 99g/km of CO2 emissions on the combined cycle.

Speak about the Hybrid estate version, Roelant de Waard, Ford European Marketing, Sales and Service vice president, said:

For many customers the practicality offered by a estate body style is an absolute must, so we’re excited to announce that from next year those drivers will also be able to reduce their fuel bills using the sophisticated petrol-electric powertrain of our new Mondeo hybrid estate.

Irish prices and specifications have yet to be decided but looking at the current Mondeo Hybrid and estate prices, a price of around €37,000 for the Titanium-spec model should be a good guess.

Sales of the new Mondeo Hybrid estate should being in the spring of 2019 in Ireland.
