Change Of Source For New Zealand Focus
Ford New Zealand announced today that from 2006, all new Focus models available for sale in New Zealand will be sourced from Europe.
Consumers will notice few discernable differences between the current South African models and the European variant, while the current range of powertrain and body styles on offer will remain unchanged.
"Focus is re-establishing itself as one of the world's most popular cars, and is finding particular favour in Southern Hemisphere markets supplied by Ford of South Africa," said Ford New Zealand Focus Brand Manager, Suzanne van Pels.
"Demand for the all new Focus has outstripped supply, and in an effort to assist we have agreed to allocate our volume to Ford Australia and in turn have been able to secure our volume requirement out of Europe," concluded Mrs. van Pels.
