U.S. Ford C-MAX and Focus Plant Production Moving In 2018

800_22871According to several media sources, Ford announced today that production of the C-MAX and Focus will move from the Wayne Michigan Assembly Plant in 2018 to another location.  UAW Officials understand it will be outside the U.S.  The C-MAX is also made in Germany.  The Focus is built in several other countries.  Although the plant only makes C-MAX and Focus vehicles, Ford said the plant would not be closed.  Does this mean anything about the future of the C-MAX Hybrid and Energi?  I don’t know.  It wasn’t that long ago that the plant was retooled for the Focus and C-MAX after being closed in the 2008 recession.  Focus production at the plant started December 2010 and C-MAX in 2012.

  3. The CMAX hybrid is Ford’s best kept secret! It’s extremely driveable city & Highway. Compared to it my son’s Prius is an appliance.In 18000 mi if has averaged
    44mpg {US}. It is at it’s best in heavy stop & go expessway traffic(50 -55 mpg).
    the instrumentation is much better than the Prius as well.For older people entry & exit is excellent.
