Ford Ka Will Join the Mustang and Edge Globally in 2015
With the debut of the highly anticipated Mustang now behind it, Ford (NYSE:F) is turning its attention to some other global models in the company’s push to unify its international operations under one roof. The Ford Ka, pictured above, was introduced in Brazil in October, and the tiny car is charged with carrying Ford’s ambitious aspirations in emerging markets.
The five-door model pictured will be replacing the three-door version that was launched in Europe about five years ago and is expected to arrive in 2015, Automotive News reports. In Europe, the Ka will join the new Mustang, the Ford Edge SUV, and the EcoSport crossover, all of which are tools chosen to bring Ford’s European operations back to profitability by 2015.
“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 in a statement. “The introduction of the Mustang, the Edge and Ka Concept are proof of our commitment to building our line-up with exciting new vehicles.”
