Ford invests in clean engines
The low emission engines will go into production within two years and go on sale globally carrying the name EcoBoost.
They will feature turbocharging and direct-injection technology, and are expected to provide up to 20% better fuel economy, 15% lower CO2 emissions and good driving performance.
More than 2000 people are employed at the Bridgend plant, which has received £315 million in investment over the past five years. The extra funding will also help increase production capacity to a million engines a year.
The investment includes £13.4 million of Welsh Assembly Government money.
