Ford press release about new product

This is just an extract of a press release this week re developments coming, and going to be announced at Geneva motor show.

The 81st Geneva Motor Show will be the stage for a series of major new vehicle and customer focused technology announcements by Ford. Ford of Europe Chairman and CEO Stephen T. Odell will unveil a ground breaking new vehicle during a Ford news conference at 14:30 on March 1 at the Ford stand, in Hall 5.

"Today Ford has its strongest product line-up ever and we've got an aggressive plan to keep our vehicle portfolio the freshest in the industry," Odell said. "We have at least 20 new models and derivatives coming across our entire European range - from small cars to commercial vehicles - and at Geneva we will be introducing some of these. From zero emission electric vehicles like the new Focus Electric, the versatile new Ranger Wildtrak and the Vertrek SUV concept - that hints at the next-generation Kuga - to our latest rally car, the Fiesta RS WRC, they will all be on the Ford stand."

Ford also plans the European debut of the C-MAX Energi, a pre-production version of the plug-in hybrid first shown at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, that will launch in Europe in 2013. The vehicle will be built at Ford’s Valencia plant in Spain.

Exciting times ahead. Starting with the new Focus later this month.
