Ford B-MAX concept, assembled in Craiova, heads for Geneva

Ford of Europe plans to unveil a concept of a small minivan that will replace the Fusion at the Geneva auto show in March, a Ford source told Automotive News Europe, HotNews.ro. The vehicle will challenge the Opel Meriva, Europe’s top-selling small minivan. It will go into production by the end of next year at Ford’s factory in Craiova, Romania, the source said, adding that European sales of the minivan will begin in early 2012. When asked for confirmation, a Ford of Europe spokesman reiterated what the company has previously said about its production plans at the Craiova plant: “It is a B-segment vehicle and will go into full production early in 2012.” Ford, which uses B segment to describe subcompact-sized cars, is likely to call the new vehicle B-Max, as it will be the smallest offering in Ford’s European range of minivans that includes the medium C-Max and large S-Max and the large Galaxy.
