Ford of Europe has started making a version of the Fiesta compact that the company says gets 71 miles per gallon on the forgiving European driving cycle, making the new Fiesta Ford's "most frugal car ever."

Ford has announced the complete range of ECOnectic models of its lineup. Besides the already known Ford Focus ECOnetic, which is good for 115 g of CO2 per km, with a new oil develped by BP which helps reducing even more engine friction, there are two new models.

At the Frankfurt Motor Show, Ford will take the wraps off their own lineup of special low CO2 variants of their European model range. Joining VW's BlueMotion and GM's ecoFlex, Ford has created the ECOnetic brand for their cleanest models. The first one to hit the streets will be the Focus ECOnetic which will have CO2 emissions of just 115g/km.
