Marketing in Spain will take place in the first quarter of 2011.

“The new Focus truly represents the best of Ford Motor Company, and we are excited that the first vehicles will be in customers’ hands very soon,” said Derrick Kuzak, Ford’s group vice president of Product Development. “The investment in our new C-car platform has enabled us to provide global consumers with an affordable product which offers quality, fuel efficiency, safety and technology beyond their expectations.”

It has a modern design, first class finishes with good quality materials and a full range of powerful and efficient engines, which use the latest technology.
Developed in Europe, for sale in over 120 markets worldwide with 80 per cent parts commonality, the next-generation Focus is the hero model created from Ford Motor Company’s new global C-segment platform. This platform will underpin at least ten vehicles around the world and account for two million units of annual production by 2012.
“The presentation of the three core Ford Focus bodystyles here in Paris is another key milestone in our global C-car strategy,” said Kuzak. “In just a few months, Focus production will start simultaneously in the Saarlouis and Michigan assembly plants, as we begin to realise the vision of delivering at least ten new derivatives from the same platform globally.”
