“As advances in technology continue to change at a rapid pace and following the introduction of the all-new Mondeo Hybrid model to the Ford range, a completely new training programme has been implemented for specialist technicians across the group’s Ford branches.

“Customers can relax in the knowledge that work will be carried out to the highest and safest standards at all times, in keeping with the company’s award-winning customer service.”

The all-new Ford Mondeo HEV is the first ever model to be manufactured by Ford in Europe.  Combining the benefits of both electric and petrol power, the Hybrid model enables customers to enjoy outstanding efficiency and refinement along with rewarding performance and driving range.
