SAARLOUIS, Germany - Production of the all-new Ford Kuga, Ford of Europe's first entry into the highly competitive crossover market, began February 26, 2008 at the Ford plant in Saarlouis, Germany.

The company plans to build around 45,000 examples of the new model in Saarlouis this year - equivalent to nearly 10 per cent of the plant's annual production volume.

Altogether Ford invested a very significant amount in new manufacturing technology to support Kuga production at Saarlouis. Sales of the Kuga will progressively begin across all European markets a little later this year.

The Kuga is the fourth model to be launched at Saarlouis in the past 12 months. It follows the new Ford C-MAX in March 2007, the new Ford Focus in December 2007 and the new Ford Focus ST earlier this month.

The Ford Kuga is being built exclusively in Saarlouis and around 84 per cent of production will be exported to a total of 32 different countries. The five largest sales markets are Germany, Italy, Great Britain, France and Spain. |GlobalGiants.com|
