A great day for Ford as the company managed to produce the one-millionth Focus on the European automobile market, a flaming red five-door hatchback that comes with a 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine. It appears that from a relatively unknown model, the Focus model has become one of the world’s best-selling vehicles, Ford selling 1,632,700 of these family-size cars since 1998 in the UK alone. For the whole of Europe, that figure rises to 6.9 million and more than 12 million worldwide.
According to Barb Samardzich, chief operating officer, Ford of Europe “the Focus is a great-to-drive family car with the versatility to suit the needs of a huge range of customers,” making this particular vehicle a very popular car. The new Ford Focus, launched in 2010 in Europe, is the quite the best-seller on a global level and the soon to be introduced version of the Focus will surely have the same impact.

The company’s plan is to introduce this new Focus model as the first petrol-powered family car in Europe that will offer just 99g/km CO2 emissions, being powered by a 1.0-liter EcoBoost petrol engine.

Besides this, Ford offers the Focus with Active Park Assist  as well as Active City Stop technology and promises a safe driving experience as well as a comfortable and stylish vehicle that manages to suits the needs of numerous people across the world.
