Ford Ireland (technically still called Henry Ford & Sons Ltd) is the latest carmaker to unleash a raft of special offers for the new 212-numberplate in July. Irish buyers will be able to score themselves a discount of €2,950 off the price of a new Focus hatchback, if they so fancy...
Zero per cent finance
Other special deals on offer include 0 per cent finance packages for ST-Line X and Vignale versions of the popular Kuga and Puma crossovers, while other models get a 4.9 per cent interest rate on finance.
Lots of hybrid models
"Our business has been seriously impacted by the long months of Covid19 restrictions from the start of 2021, so our dealers are more eager than ever to welcome customers back into the showrooms. We are sure that our suite of 212 registration offers will ensure Ford is at the top of the list of any prospective customers with great savings on our award-winning range", said John Manning, Market Lead of Ford Ireland. "The offers cover all diesel and petrol options as well as our most up-to-the-minute mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and full hybrid (FHEV) models for customers who want to experience the fuel-efficient benefits of electric driving but who, perhaps, still have reservations about going full electric until we see the roll-out of a more widespread and dependable fast-charging network."
Discounts of up to €3,150
Other offers include a €750 discount on Fiesta models running the mild-hybrid 1.0-litre petrol engine; €1,500 off a Puma running the same engine; €2,350 off a new EcoSport small crossover; as much as €3,150 off the price of a Kuga SUV, if it's a mild-hybrid petrol, hybrid, or plug-in hybrid. Still fancy a Mondeo? You can get €2,000 off the cost of a hybrid version, and €1,200 off the price of the just-updated S-Max Hybrid seven-seater. At the top of the range, there's €2,250 off the price of a new Galaxy Hybrid MPV.
All new Fords come with a seven-year warranty and seven-year roadside assistance. Oh, and it's not just the passenger cars that are getting the special offers - the 212 registration offers also extend across Ford's commercial vehicle range, with savings of €8,000 on Transit models and a 2.9 per cent finance. There's also a saving of €4,700 and zero per cent finance on new Ranger pickups.
