Ford is a 'green choice' for car loans customers

People looking to take out car loans for new environmentally-friendly vehicles may find it is worthwhile paying their local Ford dealership a visit.

According to the manufacturer, its latest ECOnetic models help motorists make savings on fuel through the use of a smart gear change alert.

The gear-shift indicator located in the instrument cluster of the Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo ECOnetic vehicles signals to drivers at the optimum gear-changing moment.

Ford explained moving more quickly through the gears cuts fuel consumption as motorists are able to avoid unnecessarily high engine speed.

Tim Winstanley from the carmaker stated: "The indicator provides drivers with a helpful aid to using less fuel and encourages a smoother driving style."

Motorists using the system will also reduce their CO2 emissions and decrease wear and tear on transmission and engine components, the manufacturer pointed out.

Earlier this week, Ford revealed the new Focus RS would be priced from £24,995.
