Repair and service Ford cars in the eBook

Ford Motor Company is an American multinational automobile corporation founded by Henry Ford on June 16, 1903 in Dearborn, a suburb of Detroit, Michigan.

She is known for first using an assembly line and conveyor belt, which was later adopted by many other companies and is still used in modern industry today. This phenomenon is called Fordism.

The company now sells cars and commercial vehicles under the Ford brand and luxury cars under the Lincoln brand. In the past, at car factories & nbsp; Ford also manufactured tractors and buses. Cars are the main product of the group. Over more than a century of activity, about 170 models have been produced, some of which have been produced in the latest generations, as in the case of the Ford Fiesta.

During the twentieth century, the company expanded around the world with subsidiaries in the UK, Germany, Asia, South America and Africa. In 1929, after the acquisition of 80% of German Opel by rival General Motors, Ford decided to open a plant in Cologne, which produced the Model T. He also acquired other car brands such as Land Rover, Jaguar, Aston. Martin, Volvo and about 33% of Mazda. In the 1960s, the two European subsidiaries merged to form Ford Europe, based in Germany.

In the wake of the international economic crises of the new millennium, Ford has recorded serious losses, so large that it was forced to sell all previously acquired car manufacturers and cut many jobs. Thus, the group currently consists exclusively of the Ford and Lincoln brands. In the mid-nineties, Ford sold many cars thanks to the boom in the American economy due to large inventories and low cost of gasoline. With the turn of the century, rising cost of living and rising oil prices have led to a sharp drop in profits.

To address declining sales in the SUV and pickup segments, Ford introduced a new range of vehicles called Crossover SUVs built on common platforms. To protect the environment, & nbsp; new high-efficiency engines have been developed that run on alternative fuels such as the Escape Hybrid and Fusion Hybrid.

Initially, models sold outside of the US were essentially the same as those in the parent market, but later special models were created to better meet the needs of individual markets. Worldwide cars were often not very successful, for example, with the first Ford Mondeo, sales were modest in America, while with the Ford Taurus, sales were small in Japan and Australia, even if the cars were right-hand drive. Further, for example, Ford Ka was very successful in its market, but was not sold in Japan, etc. - the only exception was the Ford Focus, which sold well in both the US and Europe.
