Ford spoke about his future sports modelsFebruary 11, 2020
Ford plans to focus on providing an exciting experience while driving its future sports vehicles. The brand will not adjust to stricter emission standards.
The stricter emission standards that are now beginning to apply in most regions of the world make Ford’s leadership take a fresh look at how the company will create its future sports cars. The most important aspect of all future models of the company will remain providing the driver with an exciting experience in managing this particular vehicle, rather than focusing on numbers such as acceleration to the first “hundred”.
“This does not mean that we still will not force our cars to move at very high speeds,” said Dave Perik, director of managing sports projects for automakers like GT and Mustang.
“Our vehicles still have to be exciting to be driven again and again.”
“Many countries change the rules on emissions so quickly, and so often that manufacturers of powerful cars sometimes do not have time to adapt to them in a timely manner,” he added. The brand does not intend to create models specific for each specific market, which will be suitable according to current standards for emissions.
“What we will never do is not compromise,” Mr. Perik said. “Our sports cars will remain true to themselves!”
Mr. Perik also added that the Tesla Model S and Model 3 are vivid examples of high-performance electric vehicles that combine full compliance with environmental standards with a fairly high performance. Even its own electric crossover Ford Mach-E in the GT Performance configuration offers 459 horsepower (830 Newton meters) and can reach speeds of 100 km / h in about 3.5 seconds.
Not so long ago, we wrote that Ford introduced a diesel all-terrain vehicle on bridges and with automatic transmission. The Brazilian company Troller, which is owned by Ford, has shown the new all-terrain vehicle TX4 for the car market in South America.
