Ford will soon stop production of the once popular low-cost Focus model.
The factory in Germany, engaged in the production of these models, will stop in 2025. Carscoops reports on Ford’s plans.
In the German city of Saarloo, the Ford Focus assembly plant will operate until 2025. After that, the plant will stop the conveyor, and 3,500 people will be without work.

Previously, it was expected that after the end of the life cycle of the Focus model, the German company would be engaged in the production of a new electric car. However, the company allocated other plants for this purpose.
However, it is reported that 1,000 employees will be laid off at the plant. It is not yet known what kind of work they will perform. The rest will receive compensation as a severance pay. This process is coordinated with trade unions.
Earlier it became known that the Ford Edge crossover, which is built on the Mondeo platform, will also leave the assembly line. This machine will be discontinued on April 26, 2024 at the Canadian plant.
The company has previously shared a strategy to close some models. But over time, free seats in the row will be occupied by new cars.
