Updated Ford Mondeo Hybrid Family To Gain Wagon Version In 2019

Ford has announced the expansion of the Mondeo Hybrid lineup next year, with a wagon body style representing a more practical alternative to the electrified sedan.

Developed exclusively for European customers, the hybrid estate model will feature an updated version of the gasoline-electric powertrain currently offered on the Mondeo Hybrid and Mondeo Vignale Hybrid. Ford says full specification and pricing will be released closer to the on-sale date of the refreshed Mondeo Hybrid range.

However, the automaker does promise “attractive fuel efficiency and CO2 emission performance,” making this a compelling alternative to diesel powertrains for fleet and private customers.

All Mondeo Hybrid models are expected to get the 9.0 kWh lithium-ion battery that debuted in the 2019 Fusion Hybrid, giving it a 25-mile (40.2-km) pure-electric range. Maybe this explains why one of our readers spotted a Mondeo Wagon in the United States last year.

Currently, the Ford Mondeo Hybrid uses a 1.4 kWh lithium-ion battery that feeds electricity to an electric motor assisting the 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine, and is charged during regenerative braking by another electric motor that works as a generator. Ford says the regenerative braking technology captures up to 90 percent of the energy created during braking and uses it to charge the battery.

The hybrid powertrain offers a total of 187 PS (184 hp) and works with a Ford-developed CVT automatic. Official fuel efficiency and emissions figures for the Mondeo Hybrid sedan are 4.4 l/100 km (64.2 mpg UK) and 101 g/km CO2. For short distances of 1-2 miles (1.6-3.2 km) the Mondeo Hybrid can run in all-electric mode as well.

Expect the hybrid Ford Mondeo Wagon to offer the same features as the sedan, including the Sync 3 infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen, Adaptive Front Lighting System with dynamic LED headlights, and safety technologies such as Active City Stop, Active Park Assist, and rear inflatable seatbelts.

Ford has pledged to invest $11 billion in electrification and plans to launch 16 fully electric vehicles of a total of 40 electrified vehicles through 2022.
