Ford adds three more models to showroom

Ford Motor Company and its local distributor Capital Automotive launched three models in Myanmar on December 12.

The Fiesta, Focus and Eco Sport models are part of the firms’ efforts to provide a wider range of vehicles to connect with consumers.

Capital Automotive Limited managing director U Khin Htun said that Ford models have a number of strengths, such as safety and fuel economy.

“Customers can drive Fords on every road and feel very comfortable – Fords can drive in 2 feet of water,” he said. U Khin Htun said the Ranger pickup truck has been particularly popular in the country.

The Fiesta is a smaller vehicle available as a hatchback or four-door, while the Focus is a little larger and the Eco Sport is a compact SUV.

Ford Asia Pacific emerging markets managing director David Westerman said the firm looks to bring automobiles to people from all walks of life.

“It also supports our promise to continue bringing the best global Ford cars, trucks and SUV to Myanmar,” he said in a statement.

The Fiesta will retail for about K32 million, the Focus around K35 million and the Eco Sport at K36 million.
