The new Ford Fiesta Van which has just arrived in Ireland delivers class-leading fuel efficiency and segment-first technologies for both large and small businesses.

All diesel engines in the new Fiesta Van achieve sub-100 g/km CO2 emissions and 3.7 l/100 km(76.4 mpg)* or better.

“The new Fiesta Van is a stylish mobile workshop for light duty tools and equipment that makes great business sense,” said Eddie Murphy, Chairman and Managing Director of Ford Ireland. “Both local tradesmen and urban delivery fleets will appreciate its sharp, professional looks, while relying on its versatility, dependability and exceptionally low running costs.”

With its practical 1.0 cubic metre load space, the Fiesta Van offers businesses an adaptable van with classic Fiesta driver appeal. The load compartment features a secure steel bulkhead and four cargo tie-down hooks, both developed in accordance with the international DIN standard for load restraints, plus a tough rubber floor mat and durable sidewall trim. And with a load length of 1.3 metres and gross payload ranging from 485-508 kg, there is ample capacity for bulkier items.

Fiesta Van powertrain choice now includes the new 75 PS 1.5-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel, alongside the 95 PS 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel and 82 PS 1.25-litre Duratec petrol units.

The new Fiesta Van’s package of leading Ford driver assistance and safety features includes a number of important segment-first technologies. Ford MyKey allows businesses to encourage safer driving and limit the driver’s exposure to risk at the wheel as well as providing fleets with ownership information. Following on from the new Transit Custom, Fiesta Van also offers the in-car connectivity system Ford SYNC.

Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance directly connects the vehicle occupants to local emergency services operators after an accident, in the correct language for the region. Also introduced to new Fiesta is class-first technology Active City Stop, a system designed to help drivers avoid low speed collisions, alongside Hill Launch Assist, Easy Fuel and Rear View Camera.

In Ireland, the vehicle is available in three series, Fiesta Van, Trend Van and the really stylish Sport Van.
