Not the U.S. (TGW) – Ford Motor’s 65 mpg diesel Fiesta ECOnetic will not be available for sale in the United States, Ford has announced.
The five-seater will only be sold in Europe because the vehicle runs only on diesel. In Europe half of cars run on diesel; only 3% of American owned cars do.
Diesel fuel is now as clean as or cleaner than gasoline and is at least 30% more efficient.
The Fiesta would be $25,700 not including a $1,300 tax deductible available for diesel car owners.
Ford will be making a gas powered Fiesta. (Yes, that sentence sounds a little strange)
