December 13th, 2010 in Ford
Innovative technologies by international automotive supplier Continental figure prominently in the most recent generation of the all-new Ford Focus and the Ford C-MAX multi-activity vehicle (MAV). The latter shares a common platform with the Focus. This marks the first time that an emergency brake assist is available on a compact car. Continental was not only involved in the early design and development stages but will also be represented with production facilities at major locations throughout the world. The global Ford Focus is being built in five plants on three different continents; since Continental is a major supplier of vehicle systems, the company will also manufacture in the same regions.
