Now Ford has launched its twin in China, and early results are looking good. Ford sold nearly 10,000 Kugas in China in March, the model’s first full month on sale. SUVs are an increasingly hot market segment in China, and Ford is following up the Kuga’s launch with two more SUV models from its global portfolio: The EcoSport, a Fiesta-based small SUV originally developed for emerging markets, and the familiar Explorer.
More new products are set to arrive soon
Next up for Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) in China: The all-new Mondeo, a mid-sized sedan that is a twin in all but name to the U.S. market Fusion. The Mondeo is set to go on sale in China next month, and its striking good looks are already expected to make it a popular contender – just as they have here with the Fusion.
That would be another win for Ford. The Blue Oval may be coming from behind in China, but its strong global product portfolio is already helping it make up for lost time.
