Ford will stop production of minivans C-Max and Grand C-Max in JuneApril 1, 2019
The European representative office of the American brand Ford announced that by the end of the second quarter of 2019, the mass production of the C-Max and Grand C-Max family models in Germany would be discontinued.
The business strategy of the company’s European division is to focus all its financial capabilities and efforts on the “most profitable growth car segments”, which in the case of Ford of Europe is the Ford Focus and in particular its universal performance Wagon, the off-road Active version, and high-performance ST.
A press statement said it was “another measure to accelerate efficiency gains and reduce structural costs in Ford’s commercial activities in Germany.”
Like what Ford did in the United States, its European division wants to make every effort to get the maximum amount of money, and for this you have to seriously adjust the current lineup.
According to a press release, the demand for the C-Max and Grand C-Max models plummeted, forcing the company to decide to cease production at the Saarlouis plant (Germany). Workers at the specified manufacturer were informed of this decision earlier.
Changes and sometimes quite dramatic lineups are not at all new to the automotive industry, especially for the Ford. Recall that last year, the headquarters of Ford announced the cessation of production and further sale of Focus and other sedans in the United States. For their car market, the guys decided to focus on crossovers, SUVs and pickups.
