Despite a challenging car market, Ford continues to retain its impressive position as Britain’s most popular new car firm.
Key models like the Fiesta, Focus and Kuga are key to this success, and Ford is hoping that 2020 will be an equally rewarding year with a host of important new releases – many entering as all-new models.
Here’s the new cars to expect from Ford in 2020…
New Mustang Mach-E
Undoubtedly one of the most important cars for Ford in years, the Mustang Mach-E is its first bespoke electric car, and the only car that’s not a coupe or convertible to ever be a ‘Mustang’.
Featuring a Tesla-style interior, as well as an electric range of up to 370 miles, this model has the potential to set a new agenda for Ford. It’s available to pre-order now, with prices starting from just £40,270.
New Puma crossover
If you know a thing or two about Ford, you’ll know that the Puma was a quirky Fiesta-based coupe available in the late 1990s and early 2000s. But times have changed, and now that nameplate will be used on an all-new crossover.
Arriving in early 2020, the Puma has the potential to become one of Ford’s most popular cars. It will also offer class-leading levels of practicality and a host of innovative safety kit. Certain versions can already by ordered, with prices starting from £20,845.
It’s nearly eight months since Ford first unveiled its third-generation Kuga crossover, but finally in March 2020, we’ll see the first customer examples on the road.
Replacing a model that is remarkably still getting more popular in its final months on sale, the new Kuga has big boots to fill. Another key element of this new Kuga is its new plug-in hybrid model – the first of its kind from Ford.
Combining a 2.5-litre petrol engine with an electric motor and 14.4kWh battery pack, Ford is promising this version can travel for 35 miles on electricity.
New mild-hybrids for the Fiesta and Focus
If you haven’t noticed already, next year is when Ford really starts to ramp up its electrification progress. Alongside a new EV and plug-in hybrid, Ford will also introduce fuel-saving mild-hybrid tech, too.
It’s already been announced for the Kuga and Puma in combination with the 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, but the tech will also be rolled out onto Ford’s two most popular models – the Fiesta supermini and Focus family car.
