Ford will introduce a new Ka minicar in Europe in 2015

Article by Christian A., on December 5, 2013

As you may know already, Ford unveiled the Ka Concept back in November. Today, the carmaker announced that it will introduce a new Ka minicar in Europe in 2015 and that it will be based on the concept car that was unveiled in Brazil. This new five-door model will replace the three-door Ka that went on sale in Europe back in 2008.

Still, the Ka will not be the only model launched. Ford also announced that as part of its plans to use parent Ford Motor Co.’s global model portfolio to return to profit by 2015, will also launch the new Mustang, Edge large SUV as well as the EcoSport subcompact SUV. According to Ford, the new Ka will be smaller and less expensive than the current Fiesta.

The concept version is based on company’s global B platform that is used also by the Fiesta. “Despite the challenging market conditions, Ford continues to heavily invest in new products in Europe to position the company for success in the future,” Ford of Europe CEO Stephen Odell said.

“The introduction of the Mustang, the Edge and Ka Concept are proof of our commitment to building our line-up with exciting new vehicles,” he said in a statement. For those who don’t know, Ford sold more than 1.8 million Ka models since 1996 and forecasts that the global sales of small cars will increase by 35 percent to 6.2 million units by 2017 from 4 million in 2012.
