Paris, France – Ford will debut its all-new 2007 Mondeo at the Paris Auto Show; the new version of the company’s flagship European model is being previewed in its wagon body style in near-production specification. The launch is scheduled across Europe from the second quarter of 2007.
“The new Mondeo is critical to the Ford of Europe business,” said John Fleming, President and CEO of Ford of Europe. “The Ford Mondeo has always been a major player in the European CD segment, and with over four million owners looking for us to deliver something special, we have every intention of meeting their significant expectations with this all-new model.”
The Mondeo follows the new Ford S-MAX and Galaxy models, which were launched during 2006; it shares much of its architecture and technology with those vehicles, as well as its production line. All are built in Ford’s facility in Belgium, and are targeted toward markets in Europe, Asia Pacific and Africa.
