Five millionth EcoBoost engine rolls off the production line

Ford is celebrating a manufacturing milestone for its fuel-saving EcoBoost petrol engine.

Five million EcoBoost engines have been produced globally since the engine line was launched in 2009. Last year, EcoBoost-equipped vehicles accounted for one in four new Ford vehicles sold in Europe.

The most popular version was the 1.0-litre EcoBoost, which in 2014 also was the first engine to be named International Engine of the Year three times in a row.

More than 230,000 Ford vehicles sold in Europe were equipped with the 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine, which is now available in 10 different models  from Fiesta to the all-new Mondeo.

Joe Bakaj, vice president of product development at Ford of Europe, said: "Ford EcoBoost delivers great performance with lower fuel bills, a recipe which is proving incredibly popular with consumers in Europe and around the world. EcoBoost engines and their gamechanging technology is attracting new customers to the Ford brand every day."

Available in Europe in the Fiesta Red and Black Edition models since last year, Ford's 139bhp 1.0-litre EcoBoost is the most powerful 1.0-litre volume production car engine ever. EcoBoost technology also powers the new Ford Mustang  the new 313bhp 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine accounted for half of all models configured online during Mustang's first month available to order across Europe.

The 5-millionth vehicle was a 1.0-litre Ford Focus that rolled off the assembly line at the Michigan Assembly Plant, in the United States.
