GENEVA MOTOR SHOW: Ford to unveil "groundbreaking" new vehicle
The marque hasn't given any details of the vehicle, which will be presented by Ford of Europe chairman and CEO Stephen Odell. Meanwhile Alan Mulally, Ford’s CEO, will make a special appearance by video during the news conference from Hanover, Germany, where he will be delivering a keynote speech at CeBIT, Europe’s largest technology show.
Also present at the show will be the Vertrek concept, the replacement to the Kuga and Escape, which was shown last month and the new Ranger Wildtrak pick-up truck, due to go on sale towards the end of the year.
Ford is also planning the European debut of the C-MAX Energi, a pre-production version of the plug-in hybrid first shown at Detroit, that will launch in Europe in 2013. The vehicle will be built at Ford’s Valencia plant in Spain.
Other electric vehicles present will include the Focus Electric (pictured), C-MAX HEV and Transit Connect Electric.
And the manufacturer's stand will additionally feature the new Mondeo ECOnetic, which features the new 115bhp 1.6-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi and the Auto-Start-Stop system to drive down emissions to 114g/km CO2.
