It is reported by the foreign edition of Automotive News Europe, citing its trusted sources. In addition, the automaker will show and soft-hybrid power units for models Focus and Fiesta.

The American brand can call its new compact crossover Puma, and its mass production can be established in Romania at the same plant that produces the EcoSport crossover.

 Ford patented the Puma trade name as early as the end of 2018, raising suspicion that the company would revive the old model. Previously, under this name was sold 2-door coupe, which was produced by Ford from 1997 to 2002.

  Blue Oval has already announced the official details of the soft-hybrid Focus and Fiesta before their debuts. The engine uses the Ecoboost 1.0-liter 3-cylinder engine as the main engine and uses the power of the built-in starter / alternator with belt drive. The technology uses regenerative braking to collect energy and store it in a small lithium-ion battery. The electrical component is activated at low speeds.

According to official data, the soft hybrid Fiesta will consume 4.9 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. The model Focus this figure will be equal to 4.7 liters.
