Firm plans "major new vehicle" at Geneva - expected to be the new Fiesta crossover
9 February 2011

Ford has revealed plans to launch “a major new vehicle” at next month’s Geneva motor show, which is expected to be its crossover version of the new Fiesta.

The new model would effectively replace the Fusion in Ford’s model range and previous spy shots have revealed a mini-MPV crossover in the mould of the Nissan Note and Renault Modus.

The car pictured was spied last year sporting a raised ride height and wider tracks front and rear. The new car is rumoured to be called B-Max.

The new model will be joined on Ford’s Geneva stand by a plug-in hybrid C-Max Energi and Focus Electric, both of which were launched in Detroit last month. A European debut will also be handed to its Vertrek concept, while there will be a global debut of the new Ranger Wildtrak.

Ford promises the new Ranger Wildtrak, set to go on sale in the UK by the end of the year, will be “easier, safer and more fun to drive than ever before”.
