Ford spends on high-tech engines

30 June 2015 #Sustainability Case studies

In 2014, Ford produced more than 1.5 million low emission engines in the UK, almost two-thirds of the UK total. Ford also announced an investment in excess of £475 million at its Dagenham site to produce an all-new advanced technology, low emission 2.0 diesel engine. This project will create 318 new jobs and followed investment in 2013 at the Bridgend engine plant in Wales to produce the 1.5 EcoBoost petrol engine. EcoBoost technology delivers the power of a larger engine with smaller unit fuel consumption.  The UK also plays a crucial role for Ford globally in terms of R&D and high-value manufacturing, as the centre of excellence for the engineering, design and manufacture of low-emission powertrains as well as the design and development of commercial vehicles.
