They appealed to the company’s management with a request to stop the production and sale of police cars. It’s all about the negative associations that cause such cars in connection with recent events in America.

Ford in the United States is considered the main supplier of cars for the needs of the police: this brand currently owns nearly 70 percent of this market.

Recent events in America have led some company employees to demand that management cease production of police cars.

The initiative group addressed the letter to CEO Jim Hackett and chairman of the board of directors Bill Ford. The authors of the letter wanted Ford to stop cooperating with law enforcement agencies before July 15. The demands of the workers were unsuccessful.

In response, Ford CEO Jim Hackett emphasized that Ford cars will help make police activities “safer and more transparent.” So the brand is not going to break off business relations with the American police.

Meanwhile, on the Web, without waiting for the official premiere, they unveiled the interior of the new Ford Bronco. A specially created unit will be engaged in the production of the revived SUV.
