Ford Will Make a Cheap Small Car for the Chinese Market

Ford have recently begun construction of a manufacturing plant, in Hangzhou, China, and they have big plans for what will be produced there. According to The Detroit Free Press, the American company is planning on introducing a small and cheap car, specially designed for Chinese market demands.

According to Ford CEO, Alan Mulally, "Hangzhou is really critical because of the market it serves, and it diversifies our operations.” We say it will most definitely be built at the plant. The new car will be priced under the current fiesta, which costs the equivalent of $13,316 - it should cost around $10,000.

We also expect the car to be a sedan of some sort, because it is the currently the most sought-after shape in China. It will probably also have a longer wheelbase than any of Ford’s other small cars, again, tapering the car for the specific demands of the Chinese market.
