The new Ka will be build in Poland at Tychy and will be avaliable for sales early next year.
The new Ka is the result of a joint vehicle development and production co-operation agreement between Ford and Fiat.
“It was three years ago that we reached agreement with Fiat to produce the new Ka here in Tychy,” explained Ian Slater, vice-president communications and public affairs, Ford of Europe. “One of the strengths of this co-operation has been that both parties wanted to produce vehicles which would be very different in looks and character. I’m satisfied that in doing so, we’ve set up a ‘win-win’ opportunity for both companies.”
Also, the introduction of the Ka to Tychy has resulted in 1,000 extra jobs being created in the plant and many more among locally-based suppliers.
The car will be avaliable for viewers at Paris Motor Show.
