Exterior and interior look
The new Fiesta Van will benefit from the same exterior design look launched with the new generation Fiesta. But, the Van’s the exterior design will differ depending on the trim level.
For example, the Trend series will features a broad upper grille with strong horizontal strakes and high-gloss chrome surround. It will ride on 15-inch steel wheels, and will be offered with a choice of two exterior colors: Boundless Blue and Beautiful Berry. For the interior, the new Fiesta Van Trend will offer new ebony trim and comfort seat foam.
As it name suggests, the Sport trim will be a little bit more “aggressive.”
It will feature a honeycomb grille with gloss black finish and wide, body-colored side vents. The Sport models will come with a lower sport suspension and standard 17-inch metallic-finish alloy wheels. As an option, customers can also opt for the 18-inch Pearl Grey machined alloy wheels. For the interior, Sport models will offer a two-tone red and ebony trim with contrast red stitching.
The new Fiesta Van will offer a gross payload of up to 531 kilos (1,170 poounds), a maximum load length of 1,283 mm (50.51 inches) and a load volume of 0.96 cubic meters (34.0 cubic feet).
The new Fiesta Van also offers a very impressive list of technologies:
– * Parking Pack
– * Rear-view camera
– * LED headlights
– * Optional Matrix LED headlight
– * Glare-Free High Beam
– * Adaptive Cruise Control with Speed Sign Recognition
– * Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert and Active Braking
– * Pre-Collision Assist with Active Braking
– * Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and information system
– * 8-inch touchscreen
– * Navigation system with Live Traffic updates and Local Hazard Information
Like all the other Fiesta models, the new Van model will be offered with a choice of fuel-efficient performance with EcoBoost Hybrid 48‑volt mild hybrid and EcoBoost petrol powertrains. In certain markets, the Fiesta Van will also be offered with E85-compatible powertrains.
The EcoBoost mild-hybrid Fiesta van delivers 124 horsepower.
It features a belt-driven stater/generator that serves in place of an alternator and allows for energy recuperation during braking and coasting.
Power recuperated is stored within a 48-volt lithium-ion, air-cooled battery back. This system also helps power some electrical systems within the van and can provide torque assistance during heavy acceleration. The auto start-stop system is capable of restarting the engine in just 350 milliseconds after the accelerator is pressed, essentially eliminating any lag when taking off from a stop.
The system will shut down the engine anytime you’re coasting to a stop below 25 km/h (15 mph) even when the vehicle is in gear with the clutch pedal depressed.
Thanks to this system, the Fiesta EcoBoost van is capable of delivering a fuel efficiency rating of 5.0-liters per 100 km, or about a five-percent improvement over non-hybrid models.
