Ford has recently launched new images with the production version of the B-Max, where the model opens its doors for the first time to the public.
According to the North American based automaker, the Ford B-Max doesn’t have any B-pillars and this leads to a wide door opening of 1,5 meters, which eases the access to the vehicle. As you can see from the images posted below, the rear doors of the Ford B-Max are sliding towards the rear end of the car and this helps passengers to enter or leave the model even in narrow spaces. The system is being known by Ford as Easy Access Doors and the main part of it is B-pillar, which has been removed.
Ford says that high resistant materials have been used instead of the classic B-pillars and this is offering five times more resistance without adding extra weight to the car. The front seatbelts have been integrated into the seats and the model gets a sporty touch. As a reminder, the new Ford B-Max will be manufactured at the company’s new facility in Craiova, Romania, and it’s expected to steal some of the customers from the competition, but it will also be aimed towards families with a limited budget currently looking for a second hand vehicle.
