New Ford B-Max achieves best-in-class fuel economy

and CO2 emissions for diesel and petrol models

The all-new Ford B-MAX – the versatile multi-activity vehicle debuting at Roy Chapman Ltd this summer – sets a new standard in its class for fuel economy and CO2 emissions with Ford’s latest petrol and diesel engines.

The B-MAX with a 1.0-litre 120PS EcoBoost petrol engine will offer 114g/km CO2 emissions and fuel economy of 57.6mpg.  Customers could save £387* per year compared with B-MAX’s petrol rivals, which trail with fuel consumption under 50mpg.

The new B-MAX powered by a 1.6-litre TDCi engine delivers 104g/km CO2 emissions and 70.6mpg.  This compares with 119 g/km CO2 figures from competing multi-activity vehicles on the market.

Roy Chapman Ltd, located in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, are anticipating delivery of their B-MAX demonstrator during the first week of May.  Pre-bookings for test drives of this all new model are now available.

The B-MAX features a range of technologies which reduce fuel consumption and CO2emissions. These include Auto-Start-Stop, which automatically shuts down the engine when the vehicle is at idle; the Ford Eco Mode driver information system, which helps drivers adopt a more economical driving style; Gear Shift Indicator, to highlight the most efficient gear changing points; and Smart Regenerative Charging, which charges the battery at the most economical points in a journey.

“We are really looking forward to this new model from Ford and we’re already fans of the new 1.0 EcoBoost engine which features in the Ford Focus”, said Justine Chapman, Director at Roy Chapman Ltd.  “We believe it will create new opportunities for us, from customers who have previously favoured the Vauxhall Meriva or Citroen Picasso.
