Ford has recently that 1, 000 units of the B-Max have been sold in the United Kingdom over the last six months and more than 2, 500 orders have been received for the small MPV.

The all-new Ford B-Max is entering our news once again after it was officially unveiled earlier this year during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, this time with an announcement made by the company. According to the North American based automaker, 1,000 units of the B-Max have been sold over the last six months in the United Kingdom and 2,500 order have been received for the model.

“We ran a Ford B-MAX promotional campaign offering the chance to win unusual prizes that would not normally be available to the general public. Over 70,000 of those participating clicked through to an online Ford B-MAX configurator so we knew there was strong appeal from the start, but even so we were amazed by the true level of interest – especially since most customers placed orders before they had even been to a showroom”, said the Ford Britain marketing director, Anthony Ireson.

The entry-level B-Max is coming with active dynamics control vectoring, IPS, tire pressure monitoring system, power steering, front and side airbags for driver and front passenger, driver’s knee airbag, head-shoulder airbags front and rear, ESP with traction control, Ford Easy Fuel, ABS with EBD and more. Power to the B-Max is being provided by the 1.0L EcoBoost with its 100 HP or 120 HP, depending o nteh version chosen, which is burning 4.9L of fuel every 100 km and emitting 114 g/km of CO2. Other engines available are 1.5 TDCi and the 1.6 TDCi.
