The M-Sport Ford World Rally Team (WRT) gave motorsport fans their first look at the exciting competition livery that will help the new M Sport Ford Puma Hybrid Rally1 car electrify the 2022 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC).

The M Sport Ford Puma Hybrid Rally1 makes its competitive debut at the 2022 Monte Carlo Rally. Three cars will be campaigned throughout the 2022 WRC season by drivers Craig Breen, Adrien Fourmaux and Gus Greensmith. In addition, nine-time FIA World Rally Champion, S├ębastien Loeb, will join the M Sport Ford World Rally Team to compete at Monte Carlo Rally, an event he has won seven times previously.

The 2022 WRC season marks the 25th anniversary of a hugely successful partnership between Ford and M-Sport that has delivered seven championships and more than 1,500 stage wins in iconic rally cars including the M-Sport Ford Fiesta WRC and the Ford Focus RS WRC. Since the partnership began, M-Sport and Ford have delivered a record-breaking 268 consecutive manufacturer points scoring results.

Powered using similar principles to the Puma EcoBoost Hybrid road car on which it is based, the new M-Sport Ford Puma Hybrid Rally1 is Ford's first electrified competition car. A next-generation hybrid powertrain captures energy during braking and coasting, and stores it in a 3.9 kWh battery. The energy is then used to supplement the championship-winning performance of the turbocharged 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine with repeated boosts of up to three seconds from a 100 kW electric motor.

The car can also use its electrified powertrain to travel through towns, cities, service parks and chosen sections between stages using pure-electric power. The battery pack can be recharged using an external power source at the dedicated service points between stages, with a recharge taking approximately 25 minutes.

In addition, FIA WRC Rally1 competitors will use a fossil-free fuel from the 2022 season, blending synthetic and bio-degradable elements to produce a fuel that is 100 per cent sustainable.
