  1. Thanks for the correction. I had the impression they were going for a cheaper-than-Mustang crossover, instead of taking the Model E platform now to plants in Europe.
  2. So the new European EV would be brother to this ID.4
  3. It came out on the news today that Ford would have finally sold its truck/Fiesta plant in São Paulo. The buyer, a real estate developer / constructor, was interested in the land due to its location and size. They allegedly paid R$550 (a bit over US$100 million in today's exchange rate) and might seek a partner in the auto industry to use the infrastructure in place. https://www.autoo.com.br/ford-pode-ter-encontrado-um-comprador-para-sua-fabrica-em-sao-bernardo-do-campo-sp-relata-site/
  4. Thanks for the clarifications! I was wondering if it is correct to automatically assume that a B-Digits project is based on the B3 platform. Or if it could be C2-based, like CD542.
  5. Mach-E sedan? https://www.yankodesign.com/2020/06/10/the-ford-mustang-mach-f-concept-makes-the-electric-vehicle-look-muscular-again/
  6. I have a question about codes: Since the NG Mondeo/Fusion keeps the traditional CD code despite its C platform, could new B code projects also mount on the C2 architecture? We know C2 is set to cover the Fiesta-Edge spectrum so, in principle, they could all get C codes (but that would be confusing).

  9. Are there new developments on the Mexican Transit Connect?
  10. If you try to find silver-linings in this platform mess, maybe all this "cross-fertilization" made it possible to combine the best parts of each to create a highly evolved architecture, the C2. (just wishful thinking maybe).
  11. Isn't it that International Markets Group? This seems to be a newly created group, headed by Lyle Watters (formerly in charge of South America only). There were rumours of getting the PHEV Escape in Brazil. Maybe there's no indication of that because the Kuga has already been lauched in Argentina.

  13. I apologize if too inappropriate but your comment reminded me of this:
