CHONGQING, China — Ford’s latest flagship model, the all-new Mondeo, was selected as the official car for the eighth Chongqing Mayor’s International Economic Advisory Group Meeting.
Changan Ford Automobile (CAF), Ford’s joint venture in China, is the official vehicle provider of the annual Mayor’s Advisory Group Meeting, which brings together executives and consultants from international business entities, including the world’s top 500 companies, to collect helpful feedback on the city’s development.
“Members of the advisory group have formed a very high opinion of the Ford Mondeo over the past seven years,” said Song Xiaoguo, deputy director of Chongqing Foreign Trade & Economic Relations Commission (CQFTEC).
The all-new Ford Mondeo, introduced earlier this year, sets new benchmarks in the middle-to-high segment by combining expressive design, luxury technologies, class-leading safety and top fuel economy.
Innovative and geared for success, the all-new Ford Mondeo was created for business professionals ready to start a new journey; is styled to enhance an exciting life outside of work and is set to be a must-have vehicle for urban elites.
With the China market responding strongly to Ford’s aggressive product-led expansion, CAF saw a 70 percent increase in year-on-year sales from January to August this year.
“CAF has made a substantial contribution to the city’s manufacturing sector, as well as the whole south-western region,” Song said. “The all-new Ford Mondeo has won the commission’s trust by providing top quality and safety features. Thus, we’ve made it the official car of the meeting.”
