At the 2010 Detroit Motor Show Ford has unveiled the four-door sedan and five-door hatchback body styles of the third generation Focus, a global model based on a new C-segment platform the that will be launched worldwide from 2011.
Developed by a global team, led from Ford’s European center in Merkenich, near Cologne, Germany, the new global model has a dynamic design which evolves the Kinetic Design formal language.
The new Focus is based on the new C-segment platform that is already adopted on the C-Max anf Grand C-Max, and that will provide the basis for up to 10 different models, which are expected to generate total sales in all regions of 2 million units annually by 2012.
The Focus model will be nearly identical in all markets, with 80 percent parts commonality.
Production will begin simultaneously in Europe and North America in late 2010, with individual market launches starting early in 2011.
“The all-new Focus is at the center of convergence for automotive trends,” said J Mays, Ford group vice president of Design and chief creative officer.
