Shanghai: Ford Escort Concept [video] image

Ford has officially unveiled the Escort Concept during the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, in a world premiere.

The North American based automaker Ford is reviving the Escort name with the help of the concept car in question which has been designed to compete in the C-segment. According to the car manufacturer, the new Ford Escort Concept will be put into production in the nearby future and the model will go on sale as a compact sedan which will be sold exclusively across the Chinese territory.

“This compact concept highlights the strength of our global One Ford approach to vehicle design, and represents how we can make use of our global design language to bring refined designs to attainable vehicles. Designed with the Chinese consumer in mind, the new Escort Concept has the potential to strengthen our product portfolio here in China as we take advantage of opportunities for diversification within the compact car segment”, said the Ford and Lincoln global marketing, sales and service executive VP, Jim Farley.

According to the car manufacturer, the Ford Escort Concept, in its final production version, will keep its design, with minor updates. Once the Ford Escort, in its new generation, will hit the Chinese automotive market, it will have this Mondeo resemblance and the Aston Martin grille. Sadly Ford didn’t announce any more details on the Escort Concept for the moment so we will have to wait for the model to hit the market in order to find out more about.
