The UK-built Ford 1.6 diesel engine will be at EcoVelocity, featuring in the Ford Fiesta, Focus, Grand C-MAX and S-MAX.

The 1.6 turbo diesel common rail injection (TDCi) powerplant now available in all Ford models and is assembled at Ford's wind-powered Dagenham Diesel Centre.

Emissions are 95g CO2 when found in the Ford Fiesta ECOnetic, which is now on sale.

The Ford Mondeo 1.6 TDCi produced 114g/km CO2 with fuel consumption of 65.6mpg, allowing the Mondeo to benefit from zero road tax in the first year and then £30 form year two.

Andy Barratt, Ford Britain sales director, said: "Ford has an outstanding low-carbon vehicle line-up at EcoVelocity, combining design style, technology and affordability thanks to impressive fuel economy".

Ford's Dagenham Diesel Centre in East London is 100% powered by wind-generated electricity. The centre can assemble 1,000,000 engines every year. A new turbine currently being installed will double annual CO2 savings from 2500 to 5000 tonnes per year.

Chris Wollacott, Ford Dagenham Diesel Centre manager, said: "The Dagenham Diesel Centre assembles Ford's greenest engines, which return over 76mpg. Rising demand has prompted the extra turbine to maintain the plant's green energy source."
