Ford has marked this week’s alliteration date – the twelfth day of the twelfth month in 2012 and the last in our lifetime – with the arrival of its twelfth passenger vehicle.
In 1912, Ford’s model range comprised of a single vehicle – the iconic Model T. The 2012 launch of the Tourneo Custom adds a twelfth model to Ford’s passenger vehicle line-up.
Mark Ovenden, Ford UK managing director, said: “Ford continues to invest in its product range, which will offer unrivalled breadth and choice to our customers in the New Year with the addition of the stylish and luxurious Tourneo Custom people mover.
“Since the introduction of our global One Ford strategy in 2006, the company has been able to deliver more vehicles faster to increase its competitiveness still further in 2013.”
Since 2006, Ford has added five all-new car nameplates: S-Max, Kuga, Grand C-Max, B-Max and Tourneo Custom.
The twelve vehicles that make up Ford’s passenger vehicle range are Ford Ka, Ford Fiesta, Ford B-Max, Ford Focus, Ford C-Max, Ford Grand C-Max, Ford Kuga, Ford Mondeo, Ford S-Max, Ford Galaxy, Ford Ranger and Ford Tourneo Custom.
