Ford confirmed even earlier that at the end of March 2022, the production of the current Mondeo (limousine and caravan) will stop in the factory in Valencia, Spain, due to the growing changes in the wishes of customers.
On the other hand, in China, the Mondeo will get a successor, which is confirmed by these first pictures.
It is obvious that the new Mondeo for China will be a close relative of the recently introduced Ford Evos. Unlike the Evos, which is a cross-liftback model (4920 mm long and with a wheelbase of 2945 mm), the new Mondeo will be sold in the form of a classic sedan (4935 mm long and with the same wheelbase of 2945 mm).
Like the Evos, the Mondeo will have a 2.0 EcoBoost turbo petrol under the hood with 238hp and 376Nm, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.
The equipment also includes a panoramic roof, automatic braking system, lane maintenance, Ford BlueCruise autopilot, 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, as well as a large screen Sync + 2.0 multimedia system.
Customers will also be able to get 19-inch alloy wheels, with 235/45 tires.
Sales of the new Mondeo will most likely start in China in the first quarter of 2022, while production will be taken care of by Changan Ford, which, among other things, produces the aforementioned Evos.
