New Ford Territory to launch in China in 2019 with hybrid variants

0

Ford’s joint venture with Jiangling Motors Corporation (JMC) will launch the new Ford Territory in 2019 in China with three powertrain options – a gasoline engine, a 48V mild hybrid and a plug-in hybrid. The all-new SUV will be manufactured at JMC’s Xiao Lan plant, and was tested at Ford’s testing centers in Nanjing, China, and Melbourne, Australia.

“The Territory is a breakthrough for Ford in China in terms of our ability to successfully compete with Chinese auto makers for millions of customers that we do not currently serve,” said Peter Fleet, president, Asia Pacific and chairman and CEO, Ford China.

“Territory is a key proof-point for how we will grow in China. We brought Territory to market with speed, high quality and cost efficiency. It will be affordable for young families and new buyers across China, not just the coastal mega-cities. And the technology will delight customers.”
