RICHIE HOGAN IS GOING GREEN!

Neil Lyng and Michael Lyng handing over the keys of the new Ford Mondeo Hybrid to Richie Hogan.

No, Richie is not going to play for Limerick.

As our Ford Brand Ambassador, he is now driving the new Ford Mondeo Hybrid.

The New Mondeo Hybrid has two sources of power: a conventional fuel engine and a battery-driven, electric motor. The system automatically switches between the powertrains, or uses a combination of both, to deliver a perfect blend of power and efficiency.

And to make the whole system even more efficient, regenerative braking captures up to 90% of the energy normally lost through friction brakes, then recycles it to recharge the high-voltage battery.
Intelligent design, smart technology and precision engineering maximise the benefits of a Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). Hybrid technology knows when it’s best to switch from petrol to electric power.

The result is smooth, responsive performance, an exhilarating driving experience and combined fuel consumption of only 4.2 l / 100 km.

So you win every time.
Hopefully Richie and the Kilkenny Team will win in Croke Park in the All-Ireland Final too.
