2013 should appear actually the successor to the 2013 Ford Mondeo – it probably is nothing like a Ford spokesman confirmed. Reason for the delay are problems with the works.
The car-maker Ford must start the new Mark Mondeo probably move at least one year from the fall of 2013 to late 2014. A Ford spokesman confirmed on request by FOCUS Online corresponding media reports. The reason for the delay is apparently in the closure of Ford’s plant in Genk, Belgium, where the Mondeo should have come off the line. 2014, Genk closes its doors. Conversion to new tools for the production of the 2013 Ford Mondeo would pay off anymore. Early November Belgian plant workers had rioted before the Cologne Ford plant . You have the feeling that Ford plays the works and their workforces against each other.
The 2013 Ford Mondeo is the future plans of the company to be built in Valencia, Spain, together with the models S-Max and Galaxy. In turn, the production of the models C-Max and Grand C-Max from Valencia could to German Saarlouis plant be relocated.
