Ford Ka+ axed in Europe: Made in India hatch fails to fire

The Ford Ka+ was only introduced to Europe in 2016, but the car’s sharp pricing has failed to make it popular or profitable enough.


Finn Thomasen, Ford of Europe’s product communications manager, told Carscoops, “Production of the Ka+ for Europe concludes in September and will be available for our customers as long as stocks last.”

The Ka+ replaced by the 3-door Ka, made in Poland, in 2016, but was originally launched in India and South America in 2014, and is based on an even Ka platform.

Like the EcoSport, the cut price Ka+ didn’t win fans in the pickier European market.
