Performance and Efficiency

A new age of cleaner hybrid electric vehicles is here, and Ford Puma embodies this new direction. Offering a choice of new forward-thinking, advanced EcoBoost hybrid petrol options, the Puma engines deliver outstanding performance, together with impressive fuel economy and noticeably lower CO2 emissions figures than other conventional, non-hybrid engines.

What is Hybrid?

Puma’s EcoBoost hybrid technology incorporates a small electric motor to help improve efficiency. A Hybrid vehicle cannot be driven solely on electric power; instead the electric motor provides additional support to the petrol engine when needed, helping both to increase your vehicle mileage, and reduce emissions figures.
There’s no need to connect Puma to an external power source, as the separate battery pack which powers the electric motor is recharged while you drive. Regenerative braking works by redirecting energy from the brakes and back into the hybrid battery.

Award-winning performance

Clean doesn’t have to mean compromised. The 1.0-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine is a six-time winner at the International Engine of the Year awards. And no wonder. Available on Puma with a choice of 125 PS or 155 PS hybrid options, you’ll enjoy all the uncompromised performance you’d expect from a conventional 1.5-litre engine, but with round better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions – making it not only cleaner for the environment, but also kinder on your running costs!

A 6-speed manual transmission

The 6-speed manual transmission in the Puma has been optimised to make gear selection easier, more precise and quieter. It has been specially engineered to improve driving dynamics and reduce fuel consumption, too, helping to make your drive more exhilarating whilst reducing trips to the petrol station.
