Ford creates "green" labelling for Austrian market: ecosport

Ford in Austria has decided to launch its own "green" label of cars which will fit into the new anti-pollution legislation that was passed recently. This legislation creates government rebates according to a vehicle's CO2 emission levels.. Therefore, instead of the "ECOnetic" brand elsewhere in Europe, Austria will use its own label, called "ecosport".

The range of "ecosport" models includes the following cars:

  • Ka (1.3 l gas)
  • Fiesta (1.3 l gas)
  • Fusion (1.4 l gas - the Euro model pictured above)
  • Focus (1.4 l gas, 3- and 5-door versions, 1.6 diesel Station Wagon)
  • C-Max (1.6 diesel)
The corresponding rebates from the Austrian government for cars with lower CO2 emission levels range from 1,751 EUR for the Ka to the 3,460 from the C-Max.
