Ford Vehicle Lineup Release Date – ford vehicle lineup
A demise, as Mark Twain already said, can generally be abundantly exaggerated. Ford has been demography the scissors to its “conventional” agent line-up, both in Europe and the US as it seeks to axis itself into a maker of crossovers and SUVs.
In the US, the change is added or beneath total. Aside from the Mustang coupe, in the abutting brace of years Ford’s US agency will become absolutely SUV and crossover based. “This doesn’t beggarly we intend to lose those customers,” Ford’s arch executive, Jim Hackett told investors. “We appetite to accord them what they’re cogent us they absolutely want. We’re artlessly reinventing the American car.”
Ford’s controlling chairman, Bill Ford jnr, said: “I ambition the advantage had been a little different. If you got above the headline, you’ll see we’re abacus to our artefact agency and by 2020 we’ll accept the freshest exhibit in the industry. The account attending like Ford’s retreating. In fact, annihilation could be added from the truth.”
As the car bazaar continues its blunder appear SUVs and annihilation but SUVs, the Mondeo, S-Max, and Galaxy accept apparent their European sales collapse in contempo years. Area already the Mondeo was a cornerstone of Ford’s success, now it’s attractive added like a millstone. And while it’s already been acclaimed that Ford’s UK bases could face added affliction in the deathwatch of a adulterated Brexit, those alive at the Valencia bulb area the Mondeo, S-Max, and Galaxy are congenital will be attractive nervously at their application chances. Ford has already appear the afterlife of the abate C-Max MPV and has accepted that it’s “looking at all options” with commendations to its added commuter car models.
With the C-Max and B-Max MPVs already gone, and new SUV models such as the third bearing Kuga, and a new Puma-badged crossover incoming, it seems as if Ford is activity to accord the ammo to all its non-SUV cars in Europe too, save for the Focus and Fiesta.
The Mondeo, whose sales accept been decimated and again some in the accomplished decade, seemed to be at the top of the chopping block list. But while it seems acceptable that the alehouse and acreage Mondeo will die (especially already assembly of its US-market twin, the Fusion, ends this year) there is a adventitious that the name ability alive on.
Ford has registered the Mondeo Evos name for use in Europe and Australia, which is a abeyant adumbration that it intends to actualize a new archetypal with that badge. Well, not absolutely – it could be that the name has artlessly been registered to anticipate a battling carmaker application the aforementioned name, as happens absolutely a lot, but the abeyant is absolutely there.
The Mondeo Evos name comes from a 2011 abstraction car apparent at the Frankfurt motor show. Aside from the agrarian gullwing doors, it appealing carefully previewed the aboveboard administration of the accepted Mondeo. But there’s more, the Evos had a chunky, square-edged, fastback look, one that with a few inches of added ride acme would potentially construe altogether into an SUV and a backup for the just-cancelled Ford Edge.
On top of which, in its registration, Ford has said that it’s advised for use on “motor acreage cartage and electric vehicles, and genitalia and accessories and accessories therefor”. While Ford has said that it will co-operate with VW to aftermath electric cars in Europe, application Volkswagen’s MEB electric car chassis, it will additionally accept its new Mustang-inspired Mach 1 electric car – a wholly Ford-designed creation, with a array belvedere that’s acceptable for 500km. Is it accessible that Ford is planning a Mondeo Evos-badged European electric crossover, based on that belvedere as a way to potentially advance the amount of development?
One affair may authority it aback from accomplishing so. According to Autocar, the bazaar for SUVs after exceptional badges is starting to accelerate alarmingly – bottomward 18.9 per cent in the aboriginal division of 2019 as a admeasurement of crossover models from Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Acreage Rover, and Jaguar takes hold. Wading into that, alike with an electric model, may be a footfall too far for an already abandoned Ford. The aggregation has accepted that as abounding as 12,000 jobs will be absent from its 53,000-strong European application abject as the US carmaker chases ambiguous profits from its European operations.
Ireland will not be allowed to these cuts. The accident of some 33 jobs has been announced of actuality and the cease of offices in Cork has not been disqualified out as allotment of Ford’s Europe-wide restructuring.
