Ford Europe

Fiesta. The Ford Fiesta is a mid-class supermini car designed by the Ford Motor Company in Europe and also manufactured in China, Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela, India and South Africa. It is well marketed worldwide, including Japan and Australasia, but was only sold briefly in North America. It is one of Ford's most successful cars with over ten million sold in seven distinct generations since 1976 and production continues as of 2006, with an eighth generation expected soon.

Fusion. The European Ford Fusion is a stretched version of the Ford Fiesta supermini, produced in Europe since 2002 and sold in Europe and India. The design presents elements of both estates and multi-purpose vehicles. Its extra high look compared with the Fiesta is due to increased ground clearance and taller roof, which gives it more room and more comfort for taller drivers than regular superminis, making Ford Fusion closer to mini MPVs.

Focus. The Ford Focus is a small family car made by Ford and sold in most Ford markets worldwide. Launched in 1998 in Europe and 2002 in Australia, it has become the United Kingdom's best selling car, following with the success of its predecessor, the Escort. Two years in a raw, 2001 and 2002, the Focus was the worlds best selling car. A new generation of the Focus was launched in Europe in January 2005.

Ka.  Ford Ka is a city car from the Ford Motor Company produced and sold in Europe and elsewhere. The European version is assembled in Valencia, Spain.

Mondeo.  The new, 3rd generation Mondeo (under codename: CD345) was officially unveiled in 5-door production form in late 2006. Based on the EUCD platform developed in cooperation with Volvo, the platform is now used in the new large MPVs Galaxy and S-MAX, but not the North American Ford Fusion or the Mazda6 in Japan. It will also be used for a certain line Volvos, for the new Land Rover Freelander, and even for the new Jaguar X-Type, though the latter may not be replaced.

C-max. The Ford C-MAX is a compact MPV designed by Ford for the European market and built since 2003. It is the first model to use the Ford C1 platform, also used by the Mk II Ford Focus, which was introduced a year later, and the compact MPV Premacy / Mazda5. With the introduction of the new large S-MAX and Galaxy, the C-MAX is the smallest of the type in the MPV lineup from Ford.

S-max. The Ford S-MAX is a large MPV produced for the European and by Chang'an Ford Automobile Co., Ltd for Chinese  market. Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2006, the S-MAX went on sale along with the redesigned Galaxy in June 2006.

Galaxy. The 2nd-generation Galaxy was introduced at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show and went on sale along with the smaller S-MAX in June of that year. The new Galaxy is larger than its older version, and is an entirely Ford design, with no more Volkswagen content.

Maverick.  Between 2001 and 2004 the Ford Escape was sold in Europe under the Maverick name. Only two versions were presented, the 2.0 L Zetec engine with manual transmission and 3.0 L Duratec with automatic transmission, both gasoline powered. The absence of a diesel version for the European market did not help sales and production stopped in late 2003.

Explorer. The Ford Explorer is a mid-size sport utility vehicle (but big for Europe), sold mostly in North America and built by the Ford Motor Company since 1990. It is still in production as of 2007, and is manufactured in Louisville, was also assembled in Hazelwood, Missouri until the plant closed in 2006.

Ford GT. The new Ford GT began as a concept sportcar designed in anticipation of Ford's centennial year and as part of its drive to showcase and revive its "heritage" names such as Mustang and Thunderbird. Camilo Pardo, the head of Ford's "Living Legends" studio, is considered the chief designer of the GT and worked under the guidance of J Mays. The designers drew their inspiration from Ford's classic GT40 race cars of the 1960s and the GT is often mistaken for its 1960s counterpart.
