The stage is set for an additional model to the latest product offerings of Ford Motor Co. Philippines (FMCP) come next year.
According to Cristino Panlilio, Board of Investments manager, Ford Motor is ready to turn the country to a hub for the newest model. It is yet to be announced whether it is a pick-up or a mini sports utility vehicle.
Additionally, new opportunities with regards to new product programs are being planned for the Philippines. However, FMCP keeps things private for the meantime.
The latest report about the export sale of FCMP shows that it reached 75,000 units for the past eight years.
Since 2002, FMPC has provided Ford Escape, Ford Focus, and Mazda3 to the Philippines, as well as Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand.
