MOSCOW, Russia – Ford Sollers has announced its participation in the Russian government’s subsidised car loan programme and is now offering favourable purchase terms for the Focus, with a price below 750,000 roubles (€17,560).
Until September 30, 2013, Ford Credit clients are provided with a market- leading opportunity to purchase a Focus through a combination of the “Program Ford Credit 0%” combined with the government support.
Under the programme, the customer is offered a low APR, which is the bank-partner’s rate subsidised by the government programme and Ford Sollers Holding to provide “a special car price.” More detailed information on the programme terms, a list of Ford dealerships where it is available and other details can be found at www.ford.ru
The Focus participated in a previous government subsidised car loan programme. More than 27,000 Ford vehicles were bought under that programme in 2009-2011, the Focus accounting for more than 25,000 of that figure.
Focus is recognised in Russia for its quality, safety and reliability. More than 700,000 Russians have bought Focus models since the car was first launched on the Russian market. Focus was the best-selling model in the country’s mid-sized car segment in the first half of 2013.
In Russia, the model is available in three body styles (hatchback, sedan and wagon) and six series, with four petrol engines and manual and automatic transmission. This year the Russian Focus line up has been given a new dimension and is supplemented with two new series – Ambiente Plus and Sport Limited Edition.
Focus Ambiente Plus series offers an enhanced equipment level at a price starting from 599,000 roubles (€14,000). Buying Focus on these beneficial terms, customers get the car equipped with air conditioning, an audio system and heated front seats, as well as the active and passive safety systems, including the Anti-Lock Braking System with Electronic Brake Force Distribution, front airbags and Isofix child seat attachment anchors.
The new Focus Sport Limited Edition series is endowed with a sporty appearance and includes such features as 16-inch alloy sports wheels, an enlarged rear spoiler, sport-type front seats with enlarged side support, dark headlamp bezels, scuff plates, a special design gear knob, side airbags and an ESP system.
