This version replaced the diesel version, the sales of which have recently dropped dramatically.

Ford has changed the trim list for the compact Fiesta in the UK car market. This became known on Monday, October 12. Modifications with TDCi diesel engines disappeared from the market, and the new product was the “mild” hybrid. The Ford Fiesta MHEV is based on the 1.0-liter Ecoboost turbo engine.

Such a replacement was quite expected – back in 2017, when the 8th generation Fiesta model entered the market, Ford predicted that diesel engines would account for only 9% of total sales. Ford UK confirmed the trend and said it was seeing further declines in diesel sales.

Ford cars are one of the best-selling vehicles in the British car market, so it is extremely important for the company not to miss the moment when it is necessary to switch to a more modern type of engine.

Earlier, Ford commented on the refusal to produce new sedans for the American car market. This decision was made as part of a new development strategy, which involves a global renewal of the Ford model range.
