Ford has announced that it will introduced a wagon version of the Mondeo Hybrid in Europe from 2019, which will join the existing sedan model. The wagon hybrid will be part of a facelift for the Mondeo range, which we’ve seen in previous spyshots.

According to the automaker, the Mondeo Hybrid wagon will cater to customers who “carry larger loads while still benefitting from electric powertrain without range anxiety.” Developed exclusively for the European market, the model will be available in a variety of trim levels, including an upscale Vignale.

“For many customers the practicality offered by a estate body style is an absolute must, so we’re excited to announce that from next year those drivers will also be able to reduce their fuel bills using the sophisticated petrol-electric powertrain of our new Mondeo Hybrid estate,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Sales and Service at Ford European Marketing.

“Electrified powertrains will continue to play a key role in our European product line-up. Ford is investing USD11 billion and plans to deliver 16 fully electric vehicles within a global portfolio of 40 electrified vehicles by 2022,” he continued.

The Ford Mondeo Hybrid wagon will use the same hybrid powertrain found in the sedan model, which consists of a 2.0 litre Atkinson cycle four-cylinder petrol engine, an electric traction motor/generator and a CVT. A 1.4 kWh lithium-ion, air-cooled battery located behind the rear seats is also present, and can be charged via the generator or regenerative braking on a 12 V electrical system.

In total, the powertrain serves up a total system output of 187 PS, and is claimed to deliver fuel efficiency from 4.4 l/100 km and CO2 emissions from 101 g/km (WLTP) as a sedan. Other systems present on the Mondeo Hybrid include an electric air-con compressor, water pump, vacuum pump, as well as an inverter system controller.
