Ford Edge axed in the UK, will now only be available in 7 EU countries

The Ford Edge has not been a success in Europe, and the company is axing the crossover in many European markets, including the UK.


News of the Edge’s demise comes around six months after the company unveiled a facelift for the 5-seat crossover.

Ford confirmed the axing to Autocar, saying, “Edge will continue to be sold in seven key European markets, with vehicle availability for customers in all other European markets as long as stocks last.”

Supplies of the Edge in the UK are expected to last until the end of 2019.

For most EU markets, the Kuga will become the flagship crossover, although some markets (not the UK) will receive the new RWD/AWD Explorer.
