Ford expects the new derivative to take a quarter of all sales in the car derived commercial vehicle market.

The addition now means the Econetic model range covers the Mondeo, Focus, Fiesta, Fiesta Van and Transit.

Steve Kimber, commercial vehicles director, Ford of Britain, said: "Fiesta Van has always been popular with fleet operators and that's sure to develop further with the arrival of the Econetic. It makes a statement as soon as you see it and we know that whilst professionals are keen to 'go green', it's just as important for them to leave a good impression with their clients.

"Overall, I expect we will sell around 2,500 Fiesta Vans a year, aiming to take around 25% of the car-derived market."
Ford says sustainability has influenced not only new Fiesta Van’s development but also the facilities in manufacturing. Ford’s Dagenham Diesel Centre produces Duratorq TDCi engines for all new Fiesta versions and derives its electricity from renewable sources, using two dedicated wind turbines.
