Regarding the conversion to natural gas, CNG is stored in tanks specially made of composite materials under the floor of the luggage compartment. The composite material offers low weight and high safety tech. The total driving range of petrol and natural gas enables traveling long distances even in areas where the refueling network is not enough developed.
The natural gas conversions are conducted by BRC Sweden AB in the city of Trollhättan. “The fact that Ford has chosen us to perform conversions to CNG shows our work is well received, since Ford sets very high standards for kit installations,” said Dennis Staaf”, President of BRC Sweden AB.
The price of the Focus Trend 5d 1.6 CNG starts at SEK 232,700 (over USD 35,000) and can be ordered from now with first deliveries scheduled for November 2012.
