Focus EcoBoost Hybrid anticipated CO2 emissions from 106 g/km, fuel-efficiency from 4.7 l/100 km. http://www.campaign.ford.com/content/fordmedia/feu/en/news/2019/03/26/new-generation-of-ford-electrified-vehicles-to-include-fiesta-an.html
Looks like the anticipated Hybrid CO2 & fuel efficiency ratings are hmmmmmm pretty much the same as the non-Hybrid current MK4. I don't see any numbers that would bring to mind descriptive words such as "Ultra" nor "Great" compared to the current crop of Foci. As far as improved performance this is a wait & see detail, and lets see if "Europeans" will "love" Fords strategy.
Pricing - if comparing how Ford EU prices the Mondeo Hybrid compared to non-Hybrid Mondeo, the Hybrid costs around $3 grand more. Some Europeans will see this as a small increase most likely, some not.
